ISLAMABAD (92 News) - Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Imran Khan wants to drag institutions in politics and for this reason, he reiterates that institutions should not remain neutral.

Addressing the National Assembly on Wednesday, he said: "When our institutions started becoming neutral, be it the Election Commission, the courts or other institutions who used to take interest in elections, these people started panicking. This is because they knew that their bails would be revoked if transparent elections are held and the institutions are neutral. They know that they are here today because the 2018 elections were rigged."

Bilawal Bhutto said that Imran Khan is complaining about the institutions being neutral since undemocratic parties like his cannot win otherwise. "This is why today, they are running a movement for our institutions to play a controversial role instead of a neutral and constitutional one."

He said that for the past four years, the opposition benches did not get the opportunity to speak and contribute in the Assembly. "Everyone is witness to how the House was run. Today’s opposition, despite being a limited number is now getting the chance to talk and is not talking about the economic issues or the budget but about Sindh’s local body elections. It would have been appropriate had this matter been raised in the Sindh Assembly," he added.

Regarding the local government elections in Sindh, Bilawal said that the Pakistan People's Party has been struggling for democracy, free and fair elections and the economic issues of the people for three generations and has been facing every tyrant.
