Bilawal wants paradigm shift in politics

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday stressed the need for a new way of thinking and politics in Pakistan, saying that it is essential to bury the old politics of hatred and revenge that is detrimental to the country’s youth.

Addressing a huge PPP Foundation Day rally in Quetta, Bilawal emphasised the need for politics that focused on unity rather than division.

The PPP leader noted the current discussions on a charter of the economy, and asserted that the PPP would introduce its own, focusing on the people’s needs.

About the issues of poverty, inflation and unemployment in the country, Bilawal said that only the PPP genuinely cared about addressing the concerns of the poor, while other parties primarily represented the aristocracy.

“Other parties represent the aristocracy. I will represent the youth, not any athlete.”

The ex-foreign minister expressed the view that politicians should prioritise serving the people over their personal interests.

During his address, Bilawal showcased former president Asif Ali Zardari’s efforts for the revival of democracy and public service, saying that Zardari had initiated the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), introduced the 18th Amendment to the constitution and worked for the welfare of the poor in Pakistan.

Bilawal also credited Asif Zardari with putting an end to the politics of hatred, and expressed his belief that the Pakistan Peoples Party would win the upcoming elections.

The PPP chief also outlined his party’s progressive agenda, promising youth cards for the youth and subsidies for farmers after his party comes into power. He said Pakistan would prosper if its farmers were prosperous. Bilawal also announced plans to introduce the Benazir Labour Card, ensuring rights for workers and labourers.

PTI founder, Bushra Bibi indicted in 190m pound case

 An accountability court indicted the PTI founder and his wife Bushra Bibi in the ill-famous 190 million pound case – also previously known as Al-Qadir Trust case – as the judge, Nasir Javed Rana, held hearing at the Adiala jail.

All the cases involving the former PTI chairman are being heard at the jail premises – where he is imprisoned – because of the security threats, for which Bushra Bibi was shifted from her Bani Gala residence where she is serving her sentences in two cases – Toshakhana and illegal/un-Islamic marriage.

Meanwhile, her husband has so far been convicted in three cases – cipher, Toshakhana and illegal/un-Islamic marriage.

During the proceedings, the two accused pleaded not guilty, as the judge adjourned proceedings till March 6 while also summoning five witnesses to record their statements on next hearing.

However, the accountability court accepted two pleas filed by the PTI founder, requesting permission for an appointment with his dentist and general physician.

Previously, the indictment had been postponed on several occasions due to the absence of Mohammad Bashir – the accountability court judge who is set to retire on March 14 and has applied for leave preparatory to retirement (LPR).

However, the law ministry last week appointed District and Sessions Judge Rana as an Accountability Court No 1 Islamabad judge to replace Bashir who went on leave on deputation for a period of three years.
