Karachi: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that they would conduct proper investigations about the attacks on his party workers during the general elections.

“Our party worker Abdur Rehman was martyred during this election. Why his family was booked in the cases? Was it done to spread fear?,” said Bilawal Bhutto while addressing a press conference in Karachi on Saturday.

The PPP chairman vowed to make all those involved in torturing his party workers an example. He said Abdur Rehman was accused of removing the flag of MQM-P.

He announced to form a JIT to investigate the incidents of firings which claimed lives of his party workers during the general elections. He also regretted over the performance of the law enforcement agencies during the elections. 

“We will help the families of our workers who became victim of torture during this elections get justice,” said Bilawal.

He said that the PPP would govern this province and they would not allow any action against the law and order in Karachi.

“All those parties which believe that they can do politics on the basis of violence are mistaken,” said Bilawal.  Removing any party’s flag, he said, was not the way of the PPP.

Addressing a question about alleged rigging, Bilawal said that there is not much difference between the 2018 general elections and the elections of this year.

“If there had been any rigging then come up with the evidence,” said the PPP chairman. He stated that the parties which could not win the elections without rigging were staging protest against rigging.

“I think that Imran Khan himself decided that they do not want to compete with Shehbaz Sharif. Despite majority, Imran Khan did not opt to talk to any other party,” said Bilawal.

He criticized the PTI over IMF letter statement, saying that it showed that they wanted the politics for their own sake and not for the sake of the country. They [the PTI], he said, wanted to destabilize the country.

“This letter will have no impact, and by this, the PTI has further exposed itself before the public,” he added.
