Insight Online News

Islamabad, Jan 7 : Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Thursday announced that his party will be commencing its long march on February 27 from Islamabad against the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government, Dawn reported on Friday.

Bilawal further said that the PPP was entering the second phase of its protest immediately by holding rallies at the divisional level to show solidarity with farmers, who were running from pillar to post to get fertiliser for the most important wheat crop, against the record inflation and unemployment in the country.

He said that he had been under pressure from his party to launch an anti-government drive against Imran Khan’s government at the earliest as the people were tired of waiting for the ouster of the PTI government that had brought the country to the brink of an economic collapse and made life for the people a living hell.

With regards to the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) long march on March 23, the PPP chairman said the opposition alliance, of which his party had been a part, did not consult him about their protest plan so both the PPP and PDM were free to follow their respective strategies.
