‘We will not tolerate this anymore,’ Bilawal chides PM Khan for giving threat to Zardari

“We will not tolerate this anymore; I am here now,” Bilawal said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.

ISLAMABAD: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari today reacted strongly to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s threatening remarks about having Asif Ali Zardari on his target.

Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Thursday (March 10), Bilawal said, these “threats” will not be tolerated anymore.

“We will not tolerate this anymore; I am here now,” Bilawal said.

The PPP chairman said that there have been two such incidents that are unbearable for him — referring to PM Imran Khan’s statement and drone incident with Aseefa Bhutto.

PPP Chairman said that his family and party has made many sacrifices for Pakistan, the restoration of democracy but they will not tolerate it anymore.

“I am not a child anymore,” Bilawal said in reference to his young age at the time of Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.

He said that for those who think that we will get scared and step back, they don’t know that Zardari and Benazir’s blood flows in my veins.

“What I will do to you will be remembered by your generations.”

We never used guns but we know how to use them,” Bilawal said, adding that he is a peaceful person and will remain the same.

“However, we will respond in the same language if they keep pressurising us,” he said, referring to the prime minister’s “foul language”.

The PPP chairman said Zardari was “acquitted” in all the cases against him — from the lower to Supreme Court — and therefore, the prime minister took the support of “fake reports and JIT”.

He accused the premier of taking funds from India and Israel, while also blaming PM Imran Khan for using the donations given to Shaukat Khanum Hospital for the PTI.

“You used the donations from the cancer hospital to run your kitchen and your party […] you are a culprit; a United States court has convicted you,” he told the prime minister.

Bilawal also said that he never spoke against First Lady Bushra Bibi, but the reports that he got from the bureaucracy and other institutions suggested that no bureaucrat can be posted in Punjab without first giving “money” to the first lady.

“We are told that your candidate for the chief minister [could not give enough money], but Buzdar invested in the right place — and this problem (Buzdar) is imposed on us till the day,” he said.

Bilawal said he was not Zardari, who “says that let his opponents lie as much as they want”, as due to their allegations, he would “go to paradise”.
