He asserted that the party would form the government again, however following democratic norms. “Despite of having financial support from foreign and friendly countries, the government has been unable to resolve critical issues of the country,” he said. He reiterated his resolve to fight and said “We all Bhuttos are ready to fight against you.” “They could not perform in the first 100 days of the government, whereas we had issued the Benazir income support cards to the poverty-stricken families and ousted Pervez Musharraf from power,” he further said. The PPP leader said that the PPP was enough for all of its rivals together, and the party was not afraid of any of them. “Bilawal is my and Benazir’s son, how can you scare him?” he asked. PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also adopted an aggressive tone saying that the reins of the country were in the hands of inexperienced. He asserted that the foundation of federal government have become fragile. “The selected PM does not know that a spark can reduce everything to ashes. Listen with open ears, we will fight the conspiracies,” he declared. “These people cannot frighten me with so called and one-sided accountability. We have seen Musharraf, Saifur Rehman, Ziaul Haq being held accountable,” the PPP chairman maintained. Bilawal accused Prime Minister Imran Khan for seeking control over the resources of provinces. “We are being pressurized for gaining support on 18th amendment. But we will not turn treacherous with the graves of martyrs,” he said.
