PESHAWAR: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Tuesday the PPP and the masses will hold Prime Minister Imran Khan accountable for every misery he had inflicted on the nation, Geo News reported.

Addressing the PPP’s 54th foundation day event here, Bilawal said the incumbent government had completely failed to run the country and was “toying” with Pakistan’s future and its people.

“After three years, every Pakistani is aware that the real face of ‘Tabdeeli’ (change) is rising inflation, historic poverty, and historic unemployment. These are the antics of Khan, and this is ‘Naya (new) Pakistan’,” he said.

The PPP chairman said when the government kept “waiting for an umpire’s directions” then pain was inflicted on the masses. Talking about a recently gone viral tape, which allegedly featured ex-chief justice Saqib Nisar and another of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz, he said: “Let the conspirators plot their conspiracies, let people leak tapes, we will struggle along with the people and foil every conspiracy”.

Bilawal also recited a poetic verse for Prime Minister Khan, saying: “The person, who held the reins before you, was confident of being a god, just like you”.

He further said the people who had earlier blamed PPP leaders for corruption and “phoned courts to take action against them” were now certified “thieves”.

He asked Prime Minister Khan to halt his “anti-democratic methods”, as he vowed that the PPP and the masses would hold him accountable in the upcoming local bodies elections. “Imran will not be allowed to run away. No plane would land late at night to fly him to Saudi Arabia or London,” Bilawal warned the Premier.

The PPP chairman announced that the party would hold countrywide protests against the constant increase in petrol prices on December 10, adding PPP workers would hold protests against the ongoing gas crisis at their district headquarters on December 17 after Friday prayers.

Following these protests, he added, a historic rally will be held in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh, where an action plan against the incumbent government would also be announced.
