Pakistan People Part (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari termed Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan a coward and claimed that PTI members would not leave the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab assemblies.
Bilawal stated in his speech at the 55th anniversary of the party’s founding in Karachi said, “If you wish to resign, you may do so. The PPP is prepared to face you; the PPP does not fear “puppets” or “chosen actors.”
Bilawal asserted that Khan “lied” when he stated that his party’s legislators would resign from both assemblies because he is infamous for breaking his word.
“Don’t you remember?” he asked the gathering. “After the PTI resigned from the National Assembly and the by-elections were scheduled to take place, they moved the courts and argued that their resignations were a political stunt.”
The leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), who called off his long march to Islamabad last week, has announced his resignation from all national assemblies, citing his inability to remain a part of a “corrupt system.”
Bilawal criticized Khan for terminating his long march, stating: “He escaped from Pindi. The coward fled and broke for it, just like he did after the vote of no confidence.”
Bilawal informed Khan that if he decided to resign from the assembly, the PPP and its “jiyalas” would be prepared to confront his party. But, he pledged, “We’re not afraid of you.”
