KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zaradari says great attempts are being made to make Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) the “king’s party.” The remarks were made on Friday night, as his rally camped near Ghotki.
Bilawal went on to say that the “puppet alliance” that made Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Nawaz Sharif into a mainstream leader is behind PTI chairman Imran Khan now. He also mentioned that the same “puppet alliance” helped former dictator Pervez Musharraf come into power.

“The puppet alliance has favoured [former prime minister] Nawaz Sharif and Musharraf in the past,” he stressed, while addressing election-related rallies in Sukkur, Pano Akil, Ghotki, and Obaro.
The leader also said, drawing a clear contrast between dictators and leaders, that martial law imposers are not remembered by anyone, while leaders who come into power by the will of the people are remembered for a very long time.

“No one willingly remembers [former president] Zia-ul-Haq,” he said. The name Bhutto, on the other hand, is well-known and remembered today, he added. The public, by standing with “Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, has paved way for democracy”.
