PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday said that the ruling PTI had started “false propaganda” against his party and its public representatives out of fear of the long march scheduled for February 27 on Islamabad.
According to details, the Bhutto scion reached PPP leader Makhdoom Ahmed Mahmood’s residence in Lahore and discussed in detail the strategy for the long march.
Bilawal expressed the hope that the long march would prove to be a “milestone” in the political history of the country and would “expose” the “reality” of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s popularity.
“The participation of millions of people in the long march will show the true face of [PM] Imran’s popularity,” he said.

“The government out of fear of the long march has resorted to false propaganda against the PPP and its public representatives but we are not afraid of it and will fight off conspiracies with full force,” he added.
The PPP chairman noted that the long march would be a “charge sheet” against the “Imran Khan government” by the people.
Last month, the Bhutto scion while chairing a meeting of PPP Sindh Council via video link had promised that the long march would weigh heavily on the ruling party and stressed that it would achieve its goal.
The long march, scheduled for February 27, would set out from the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam and culminate in Islamabad.
“The PPP will play the role of real opposition for the solution of the problems of the people. The PPP will expose the incompetent government of the PTI and send it home,” he said, adding that the country was facing a “serious crisis and only the PPP will steer it out of it”.
