Incarcerate my entire family but I won’t compromise on Constitution: Bilawal

LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto said that the party will not compromise on the Constitution and the 18th Amendment, even if his whole family is put in jail.

Speaking with media, Bilawal said the “grand plan” behind the joint investigation team in the fake accounts case is to eventually force PPP to withdraw support for the historic amendment.

Bilawal said that the aim behind this is political engineering.

“They want to use courts for political engineering. If I expose them, their politics of vendetta, and their grand plan against 18th amendment, our opponents start complaining…,” he said.

Responding to a question as to why PPP fails to answer fake accounts accusations against party co-chairman Zardari, Bilawal said that since it is a legal matter PPP is continuing to respond in courts. “We are responding to [only] political attacks in media.”

He further said Zardari, who was a former president, has submitted his reply before the JIT too but that its report failed to include it, adding that efforts are being made to not only misguide masses but also courts.

Slamming the government, Bilawal said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is aware that it can’t win election without rigging so it is trying to get rid of opponents through backdoor.

Commenting on efforts to unite opposition, he said that PPP aims at doing issue-based politics and intends to unite opposition on such issues.

“I don’t think efforts are being made at this time for a grand alliance,” he added.
