Bilawal Bhutto, the chairman of PPP, said that Imran Khan’s ouster was orchestrated by his party and there was no foreign hand in it.
Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto on Thursday said that it was his party that had orchestrated former PM Imran Khan’s ouster earlier this month. Bhutto denied any “foreign hand” in the removal of Imran Khan and said, “There was no foreign conspiracy against Imran Khan, it was a democratic conspiracy. It was not the White House, but a conspiracy hatched at the Bilawal House.”
His comments came after a meeting with three-time Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif on Thursday.
Commending the “coming together” of the PPP and PML-N in ousting Imran Khan a “historic victory”, Bilawal took pride in the fact that it was the first time that the “democratic means of no-confidence motion” had been employed in removing any PM in Pakistan.
Sharif, meanwhile, in a cryptic manner, dodged a question about his stance on India. “Everyone knows my stance on India,” said Nawaz Sharif as he walked out of his London office after a meeting with Bilawal Bhutto, the Chairman of PPP, on April 21.
Speaking to the Pakistani Press Nawaz Sharif said, “We need to work together as Pakistan saw the worst of times during the four years that Imran Khan was in power. He took U-turns on everything and always did the opposite of what he vowed to.”
Bilawal was accompanied by his party leaders, like Sherry Rehman, Naveed Qamar and Qamar Zaman Kaira were also present at the meeting. The talks will continue on Friday.
