The minister briefed media persons about PPP’s CEC meeting and urged all political parties to throw weight behind the supremacy of democracy, adding that they should run election campaigns under the code of conduct as economic stability hinges on political stability.

The PPP chief commenting on the string of terror incidents carried out by outlawed TTP said that miscreants are enemies of Pakistan and humanity.

“Our policy regarding terrorism is clear that terrorists and extremists are enemies of Pakistan, humanity and our religion of Islam.”

He further said that he is strongly opposed to Imran Khan’s policy of “appeasing” terrorists. He pointed out that Imran Khan took such steps during his rule, which are against national security. “He first released the perpetrators of the APS tragedy and sent them out of the country. Later, the terrorists imprisoned in Afghanistan’s jails were also invited to stay in Pakistan. As a result of Imran Khan’s actions, the country is facing terrorism again.”

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that there was a danger of polarization in the country. “Politics of hatred and division was being promoted. This approach is a threat to politics, society and democracy,” he warned.

The chairman said that questions were also raised regarding the economic situation of the country and in that regard a committee had been formed under Federal Minister Naveed Qamar, which would raise those questions before the finance minister.

In response to a question, he said that PPP wants to work together with the MQM-P. He said that despite not including such conditions in the agreement, the Sindh government has provided funds to its assembly members from the provincial budget. He further said that no one should expect the PPP to take illegal, unconstitutional and undemocratic decision.

In response to a question asked by a journalist, the PPP chairman said that the establishment has announced that they are neutral. “We should welcome this announcement. “We are passing through a transitory period.

In response to another question, he said that Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhary Parvez Elahi will have to take a vote of confidence.
