Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Saturday lashed out at Prime Minister Imran Khan, claiming 'the selected PM' would suffer the same fate as that of former military ruler General (retd) Pervez Musharraf.

The party chief was speaking to the media in Karachi, where he said, "Does he [Imran] think that he can send all the opposition leaders behind bars on fake charges?"

Bilawal said the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leadership could not bear anyone criticising their governance, Express News reported.

"What they [PTI] weren't able to achieve through rigging the polls, they are now trying to grab by hatching conspiracies," he said.

"The federal cabinet is filled with remnants of the Musharraf government," he said, adding that, it was no surprise that these members wanted to deprive the people of Sindh of their due rights.

Bilawal also hit out at the government's accountability drive, terming it as 'political victimisation'.

The PPP chairman also slammed the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), saying that the anti-graft body was itself involved in money laundering.

Bilawal said that after the PPP's train march across Sindh, the government has come to know of the massive support the party garners.
