In jibe at Imran, Bilawal says institution’s apoliticism irked ‘puppet’ politicians

In an apparent jibe at PTI Chairman Imran Khan, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said Wednesday institution’s apolitical stance has got “puppet” politicians worrying about their future.

“The institution has accepted its mistake. But now, they [‘puppet politicians’] are worried that if the institution has become neutral, then what will become of their politics,” Bilawal told a charged crowd in Karachi during his address at a ceremony held to mark PPP’s 55th foundation day.

The PPP chairman’s comments came after former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa’s interview, where he said that the army’s decision to become “apolitical” will help enhance its prestige in the long term.

Bilawal, who also holds the portfolio of foreign minister, vowed to thwart anti-democratic forces and the party will continue fighting against the “enemies” of democracy.

The PPP chairman said “chaos” was being spread in the country to save “watch thief” Khan, his sister Aleema Khan, Farah Gogi — a close aide PTI chief’s wife Bushra Bibi — from accountability.

Bilawal said when the PTI was “faizyab”, the party defeated PPP in its stronghold of Lyari and “stole” the mandate of the people.
