ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister and Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that former prime minister Imran Khan is doing long march to make COAS appointment ‘controversial‘.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Saturday, the foreign minister while accusing the PTI chairman of using undemocratic forces for his politics said that the country’s foreign policy was damaged during the past four years.
He said that the PPP has always struggled to strengthen democracy and Imran Khan s journey from being a cricketer to being selected is in front of everyone.
The PPP chairman went on to say that the whole world is facing economic disaster due to the Russia-Ukraine war.
“Imran Khan’s decisions have ruined country’s relations from the Middle East, Europe to the US,” the FM said adding that the PTI chairman’s so-called long march has no democratic purpose.
“The purpose of announcing the Long March on the same date is to make the appointment controversial,” he added.
“I am sending a message to Imran Khan and all these forces to stop playing this game,” the PPP chairman said and added Pakistan and the people cannot afford this game. “If real freedom and democracy is the goal, then why did you choose to announce the Long March on the same week,” Bilawal questioned, adding that PTI chairman’s aim is to once again play games with the fate of the country.
“Holding protest and doing politics is your [Imran Khan] right, but let this appointment be completed in a constitutional and legal manner.”
