KARACHI: In his Eid address to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) workers, PPP patron-in-chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari roundly criticised all his political foes for not making “sacrifices” for democracy.
Bilawal was addressing his supporters gathered at Bilawal House in Karachi.
“The former cricketer would indeed have worked hard to climb the political ladder,” Bilawal said, referring to PTI chairperson Imran Khan, “but he has not made any sacrifices.” He said that being under house arrest for seven days or falling off a stage cannot be counted as sacrifices.
“If you want to learn politics, learn from Bhutto,” Bilawal added, addressing the PTI chief, “If we want to learn cricket, we will definitely come to you.”
The scion of Bhutto family similarly reprehended former president and army chief Pervez Musharraf and Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
During his speech, Bilawal also expressed confidence that the next prime minister will be from PPP and reiterated that his party would continue pursuing its politics of reconciliation, democracy and sacrifice.
