Naming of Army leadership is Nawaz Sharif's personal decision: Bilawal Bhutto

Naming of Army leadership is Nawaz Sharif's personal decision: Bilawal Bhutto
November 6, 2020

ISLAMABAD (92 News) – PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto said that the naming of the Army leadership is a personal decision of PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif.

In an interview with BBC, he said that they are waiting when Nawaz Sharif will present the proofs of the allegations. "The PML-N had not named any personality at the time of the preparation of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) agenda," he said.

The PPP chairman said it was decided in the All-Parties Conference (APC) that the establishment, not a single institution, would be named during the protest movement. "I was shocked when I heard the names of the Army leaders directly during the speech of Nawaz Sharif. Usually, we do not utter such words in the meetings. But Nawaz Sharif has his own party. Neither I can control him how he talks nor he can control me how I talk," he disclosed.

During the Gujranwala public meeting, Nawaz Sharif had first time levelled allegations against the Army leadership and accused them of playing a direct role in his ouster.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the PDM is an alliance of several parties. "Our agenda is clear in the resolution passed during the APC," he said.

He said that Nawaz Sharif is the three-time prime minister of the country. "I believe he would have not named the Army leadership without clear and concrete proofs," he added.

The PPP chairman said that he could not personally meet Nawaz Sharif due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which was mandatory to discuss the matter.

He said that a single person cannot be held responsible for bringing Imran Khan into the power.

To a question that the PML-N has taken a clear stance by levelling the allegation of rigging in the 2018 elections but the PPP, in commentators' opinion, is not talking clearly during the meetings, Bilawal Bhutto termed this impression wrong.

He said that PPP's struggle for the civil rule and strong democracy is long and spans over three generations. "I will continue this struggle for their restoration in a democratic way," he added.
