Imran Khan cannot amend constitution by an ordinance: Bilawal Bhutto

Islamabad: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the government cannot amend the constitution by an ordinance.

Bilawal Bhutto said this while addressing a press conference at Zardari House Islamabad on Saturday afternoon. He said that Imran Khan distributed NRO like candies to his cronies and Aleema Baji. Imran Khan has given NRO to Ehsanullah Ehsan, sugar mafia, flour mafia and the biggest NRO was given to Papa John’s Pizza.

“Now Imran Khan is asking for NRO from PDM but we will not let Imran Khan to flee and he will have to be accountable for every crime he has committed,” he said.

Bilawal said that it seems that like elections 2018, senate elections will be rigged by making the institutions controversial. He asked that when the reference is in the court then why the court is being pressurised by introducing an ordinance. Imran Khan is shivering inside because he does not trust his members so he is trying to hold senate elections by open ballot.

Chairman PPP said that PTI wants to use every illegal means to achieve its interests. If the government wanted to bring a constitutional amendment why did it not contact political parties in the assembly for creating a consensus on the issue? He said that PPP wants a comprehensive amendment. Now he is getting the ordinance approved by the cabinet and this act is to put pressure on the judiciary. Every such effort by the PTI will fail.

In response to the questions asked by the journalists, Chairman Bilawal said that the PPP stance is that the 2018 elections were rigged. He said that the long march is a democratic way to protest.

He said that it is clearly written in the action plan of PDM that option of no-confidence will be used against this government. Now PDM has decided to contest senate elections jointly and it must be making some difference that is why Imran Khan is worried. He said that the short term goal of PDM is to dislodge this government and long term goals include getting rid of establishment interference in politics.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that he has total trust on his members and they will never disappoint him. He said that the PDM has decided not to hold dialogue with establishment.
