Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday fired a broadside against the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and 'felicitated' the prime minister and his party on World Puppeteer Day, reported Express News.

Earlier, after Bilawal repeated his claim of certain ministers’ alleged links with banned outfits, PTI reacted strongly on Tuesday, accusing him of ‘portraying a negative image of the country’.

Taking to Twitter, the PPP chairman said that the government responded to his demand for sacking three ministers associated with proscribed organisation by declaring him “anti-state, issuing death threats and NAB notices”. But, he added: “None of this deters us from our principled stand.”

He urged the government to form a joint National Security Committee (NSC) and the parliamentary committee and “act against banned outfits.” He warned that “as long as compromised individuals remain in the cabinet” no one would take the government claims seriously.

“Those who have supported such groups and their training camps must be removed from the federal cabinet,” he wrote in a separate tweet, pointing fingers at three ministers, citing various newspaper articles and reports.

Bilawal’s latest tweet against the three sitting ministers drew a strong response from Senator Faisal Javed Khan, who in a statement accused the PPP chairman of propagating a negative image of Pakistan and appeasing its enemies.
