PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has advised PML-N party supremo, Nawaz Sharif to focus on Lahore for the upcoming general elections, and to try to address the city’s issues. Bilawal’s advised comes as Sharif is attempting to form strategic alliances in all provinces ahead of the Feb 8 polls.
The PML-N has been working with Sindh-based political parties in an apparent attempt to create an alliance against the PPP in the province. At a recent meeting, the PML-N had agreed to support a constitutional reform package that includes a legal cover for local government and the disbursement of funds to districts through a provincial finance commission.
In response, the PPP has mainly targeted the MQM-P for demanding changes to the Constitution and warned the PML-N not to expect loyalty from those who had betrayed their founder.
Bilawal, during a press conference in Mithi, stated that everyone has the right to conduct their politics in every province. However, he advised Nawaz to focus on Lahore and address the problems there.
He emphasized the importance of the PML-N having confidence and trust in their own party and politics while visiting different provinces. Bilawal also expressed pride in contesting the upcoming elections on the basis of his performance as the foreign minister.
Meanwhile, Nawaz, PML-N President Shehbaz Sharif, and Senior Vice President Maryam Nawaz arrived in Quetta in an effort to form strategic alliances in Balochistan.
Several prominent political personalities have reportedly joined the PML-N during Nawaz’s visit to Quetta, as part of the party’s policy to form strategic alliances in all provinces ahead of the Feb 8 general elections.
