Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said his party is with democracy, justice, and the rule of law.
Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly on Thursday, Bilawal said that he did not share some of the opposition members’ criticism of Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address to the nation.
Bilawal’s statement came after PPP leader Khursheed Shah was critical of the prime minister’s address to the nation saying his body language was aggressive. Shah’s sentiment was echoed by PML-N leader Khawaja Saad Rafique.
The PPP chairman further said: “This is a time for us to develop consensus. This is a time for us to address the grave issues and challenges facing our country and the imminent danger that the law and order situation places the citizens of Pakistan in.”
Bilawal added that the country could not afford any more tragedies and the prime minister and interior minister needed to do their job.
Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Afridi lauded Bilawal for standing being Prime Minister Imran Khan at a time when unity was the need of the hour.
“I laud Bilawal for not engaging in political point-scoring. [He made it clear] that there should be no compromise on the rule of law,” the minister remarked.
