Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto criticized the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) said while speaking to reporters in Lahore informally, he wants to topple the government as soon as the opportunity arises, due to economic condition, human rights, and media sanctions.
Bilawal criticized PTI for its economic policies and suggested renegotiating the bailout package with the International Monetary Fund (IMF). He said: “When we remind the government of the worsening financial situation by highlighting the performance of its institutions, they respond with ridiculous.”
The PPP president said he warned the government against signing the IMF agreement, but the authorities ignored their advice. The government should not hide behind Bloomberg, IMF and Moody’s reports.
Responding to a question regarding the alleged murder of Aziz Memon, the head of the PPP strongly condemned the murder and said: “If the journalist’s family wants a judicial commission, we will constitute one. If the family wants a specific police officer they believe is credible to investigate, we will assign that officer to the case. “

A reporter said the murdered journalist posted a video in which he alleged that he was receiving threats for his coverage of a report. In response, Bilawal said the video was published last year when the PPP organized its “train march” and said “Our file is before you. Whenever you are named in false terrorism cases, whenever there are deadly attacks on your community, the PPP is always stood by you.”
Commenting on the current political alliance, he advised the PML-Q and the MQM to reconsider their decision to be in alliance with the PTI and to ask their voters if they were satisfied with the coalition.
Responding to a question on Maryam Nawaz, Bilawal said she should be allowed to visit her “ailing” father Nawaz Sharif in London and hoped that Shahbaz Sharif would return to Pakistan to play his role of opposition leader.
