Bilawal Bhutto Threatens To Topple Imran Khan Government in Pakistan

Published

on

Should Imran Khan take the threats of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari seriously? Bilawal Bhutto threatened that his Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) could topple the Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government within seconds if given the go-ahead by his father and party president Asif Ali Zardari.

But Information and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry quickly brushed away his comments. Bilawal laughed off the Pakistani government’s attempt to oust Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah and to impose the governor’s rule in the province.

He told the media that “PPP has 99 MPAs in the Sindh Assembly, while they will be needing about 49 to 50 MPAs to impose governor’s rule. But we can topple the federal government anytime, as they have a lead of just 17 MNAs. We can topple the government and send the rulers to jail if Asif Ali Zardari permits us to do so.”

Bilawal’s flagrant statements came after the government’s decision to place 172 accused in fake accounts case on the Exit Control List (ECL). According to Pakistani media, the list also includes the names of Zardari’s sister Faryal Taplur, Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah, former CM Qaim Ali Shah, Omni Group’s Anwar Majeed, Abdul Ghani Majeed, former chairman Pakistan Stock Exchange Hussain Lawai and former president National Bank of Pakistan Syed Ali Raza among others.

The accused have been placed on a no-fly list. The Information and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry in a press conference said the accused will be held accountable and each and every penny of the national exchequer will be recovered.

However, the PPP has rejected the JIT findings. According to The Express Tribune, the report stated that a real estate development company was involved in money laundering of Rs10.2 billion and kickbacks of Rs1.36 billion were laundered through accounts of 19 contractors. “The JIT report also revealed that Rs1.4 billion was sent aboard through illegal means of Hawala.”

Bilawal said the honourable courts are being fooled, misled and used for the political engineering and hoped that the Supreme Court would eventually reject the JIT report as fake. He asked reporters to testify if there had been any report of corruption committed by him during the PPP’s tenure in the Centre and province. Bilawal said they will fight the cases. “Fake cases had been lodged against Zardari in the past as well. He was acquitted and will be acquitted again.”

Meanwhile, the Information Ministry maintains that the Pakistani government is not after the Sindh government and nor will it be placed under governor’s rule. But as the chief minister faces serious allegations, he has to step down.
