PDM Peshawar Jalsa Bilawal Speech

Ahead of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) Jalsa in Peshawar, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said the incompetent PTI government will have to “pack by January” as the rulers are not eligible to run a country.

While addressing the PDM Peshawar Jalsa on Sunday, Bilawal lamented that the people who had been displaced due to terrorism and military operations against militants had still not been rehabilitated.

Residents whose family members had been killed by terrorists or whose houses and shops had suffered damages had not been compensated either, said the PPP chief.

Moreover, the Security agencies on Sunday issued a threat alert ahead of the PDM rally in Peshawar.

According to reports, the PDM rally can be targeted through a suicide bomber or IED blast at the jalsagah or adjoining areas.

The political leadership has been informed about the threat alert and the security of the jalsagah has been tightened.

Opposition leaders, including PDM chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman, PPP chairman Bilawal and PML-N vice-president Maryam Nawaz, reached the venue after having lunch at Bilour House.

Also, the district administration had already denied allowing Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leaders to hold a public gathering on November 22.

‘PDM deliberately endangering lives’

Furthermore, Prime Minister Imran Khan on Sunday said that Pakistan will be compelled to go into a complete lockdown if the coronavirus cases continue to surge across the country.

However, the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) will be responsible for such consequences, the premier said.

Taking to his Twitter handle, PM Imran blamed the PDM for ‘deliberately endangering lives and livelihoods’ by holding jalsas despite ban on large gatherings amidst increasing COVID-19 cases.

On the other hand, Minister for Information Senator Shibli Faraz said amidst the ongoing COVID-19 surge in Pakistan, putting peoples’ lives at stake for meager political gain is political persecution.

In his tweets on Sunday, the minister said playing with the lives of people and political workers exposes the mentality of opportunist political gangs.

He further added that the criminals who ruined the economy of the country and targeted national institutions are now bent on the effect on the health and livelihood of people.
