Bilawal offers anti-Nawaz co-op to PTI

GHOTKI -  Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday offered Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) to work together against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

Talking to the media in District Ghotki's area Khangarh, he said, “If we (PPP and PTI) work together then this would be last year of Nawaz Sharif and Shahbaz Sharif”. He said that a working relationship between PPP and PTI could not be established yet. Bilawal said he was giving one last chance to Nawaz Sharif to accept his demands otherwise he would be forced to protest.

Answering a question during a ‘Meet the Press’ programme, Bilawal said he had received several proposals for marriage, adding he would marry the girl chosen by his sisters.

Bilawal said, “There are a lot of offers, but the girl desirous of solemnising marriage with me will have to convince my sisters, which is going to be an extremely difficult task. I know my sisters are beautiful girls and it will be difficult for a girl to convince them. I will marry a girl of my sisters’ choice and the girl so selected will be lucky.”

“I have made improvement in learning the national language, Urdu, and will also do so in learning Sindhi,” he said. “Besides Urdu and Sindhi, I will also learn Seraiki and other regional languages of my country,” he added.

Bilawal went on to say he would stage protests like his grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and mother Benazir Bhutto, nut not like PTI Chairman Imran Khan.

Answering a question, he said maintaining law and order was the joint responsibility of provincial and federal governments.

Later, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari reached Sardar Ghar and attended a lunch hosted in his honour by Sindh Sports Minister Sardar Muhammad Bux Khan Mahar, MNA Ali Muhammad Khan Mahar, MPA and former provincial minister Raja Khan alias Ali Nawaz Khan Mahar and Ali Gohar Khan Mahar.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari met with Mahar Sardar separately and discussed with him several issues.
