Zero chance for Imran Khan to become Pak PM: Bilawal


ANI  |  Chiniot [Pakistan] 

Pakistan People's Party (PPP) co-chairman Bilawal Bhutto on Thursday hit out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan, saying the latter has zero chance of becoming the country's next prime minister.

Addressing a rally here, Bilawal said he is serving the masses and did not believe in "U-turns and showbaazi (dramas)," Dunyanews reported.

He lambasted on those indulging in hate and called all to observe based on ideology and vision.

"We have to keep Benazir and (Zulfiqar) Bhutto Shaheed's promise. We have to save Pakistan. There is no greater sense of fulfillment in a son's life than to feel like he is continuing with his mother's incomplete missions. We have to put an end to that revolves around hate and foul language, and for that we need the vote and support of our people. We need people power," Bilawal was quoted by Dunyanews as saying.

The Bhutto scion alleged that alliances were formed against the PPP, adding that his party would continue fighting against them, Geo TV reported.

Earlier on Tuesday, Bilawal took on those exchanging in war of words, saying that such low-level of politics was dangerous for the country's future.

"The current low-level of politics is very dangerous for the future of our country. Our country cannot afford this kind of politics. It is hurting Pakistan," he had said.

Taking a dig at Shehbaz Sharif-led Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Imran Khan-led PTI, he had added, "If prominent leaders engage in such exchanges then the youth will think that this is how one is supposed to act".

Bilawal had underscored that his party was focusing on tackling the problems faced by Pakistan.

The political scene in Pakistan is heating up in the run-up to the elections, which is scheduled to be held on July 25.
