KARACHI (92 News) – PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has accused the government of isolating the country, deviating from the constitution and making the institutions controversial. Addressing a gathering held in remembrance of the Karsaz tragedy on Friday, he said that it is time to send the selected prime minister home. “Giving of more time to the government will be tantamount to playing with the solidarity of the country,” he said. Bilawal Bhutto said that the PPP had witnessed several ups and downs and the Karsaz tragedy was one of them. “The Karsaz tragedy occurred 12 years ago and its bitter memories are still alive,” he said. He said that 177 martyrs of the Karsaz tragedy live in their hearts. Earlier on Friday, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had announced to challenge the result of PS-11-Larkana-II by-poll result. In a series of tweet, the PPP chairman said the by-election for Larkana’s PS-11 was rigged and demanded re-election. He also said that the truth cannot be hidden and his party will expose this selection. He vowed to win this seat back after re-polling. Bilawal has said that the party will challenge this rigging at every forum. “We will expose this selection. We will have re-election and take back this seat,” he remarked.
The PPP chairman claimed that the PPP’s candidate wasn’t allowed inside the polling station. The party members asked the Election Commission to take notice but “its malafide intent was apparent in its silence,” the PPP scion added.

“Since morning media was reporting women voters they were threatened them to vote for GDA. Despite our pleas, ECP did not take notice,” Bilawal said. He claimed that the Rangers took over inside of the polling stations and PPP’s women voters were harassed and their polling agents were thrown out.
Our candidate wasn’t even allowed inside polling stations. We kept asking ECP to intervene but its malafide intent was apparent in its silence.Despite all this political engineering PPP has reduced the GDA/JUIF/PTI+👽 lead by 5,000 votes in less than a year. 4/5 #PS11 — BilawalBhuttoZardari (@BBhuttoZardari) October 17, 2019
“This election was very hard for the party because of the “immense pressure from the establishment,” he said. He added that there was pre-polling rigging from the start with NAB arresting PPP leaders and sending notices to the workers and their families. Grand Democratic Alliance’s Moazzam Abbasi won the by-election on Thursday by bagging 31,557 votes. PPP’s Jamil Soomro was the runner up.
