KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Thursday said general elections could be held anytime and urged the party activists to roll up their sleeves for the next polls.

He was addressing a meeting held at the Chief Minister’s House here. PPP legislators, activists, and office-bearers belonging to Karachi were in attendance.He said the PPP was successful in its strategy to contest the “selected” government in the recent AJK by-elections and appealed to the party activists to fully prepare for the forthcoming local government polls in Sindh. Bilawal said keeping in view the Afghan situation, it was imperative that the PPP should form a government in the country adding that he had foreseen his party forming the next government in the country. “We know difficult times are ahead, and only one party is capable of taking care of the country and that is the Pakistan People’s Party,” he added. He said the volatile Afghan situation could have repercussions for Karachi, as it has the largest Pashtun population.

He said the entire Pakistan knew that only the PPP had the capability to defeat the ruling party. “The people of Karachi know well that the PTI and terrorists should be expelled from the city to save Karachi,” he said. He said a strong mechanism of political monitoring and check and balance was required in Karachi to resolve problems of its residents. Bilawal said he had tasked the Sindh CM with bringing such a political representative (as administrator) for all districts including Karachi who would be available to the citizens all the time to solve their problems.

The PPP Chairman said certain people are attacking the Sindh government, as they had been dreaming to rule it, adding that the PPP would combat such elements. “An attempt is being made to contest the PPP by assembling the entire political trash of Sindh,” he said.

Bilawal said the federal government continues its policy of injustices against Sindh, and a federal minister, on the floor of the National Assembly, had conceded that injustice was being done to Sindh on the water issue. “Even then, Prime Minister Imran Khan hasn’t increased the water allocation for Sindh,” he added.

Bilawal said the rights of the province have also been usurped by doctoring the population census. He severely criticised the federal government for snatching the livelihoods of 10,000 families associated with the Pakistan Steel Mills.
