SUKKUR: Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari yesterday slammed the opposition alliance of Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) rally in Karachi and said that “might be the rally would have been more effective if PDM had allowed women to participate.”
Bilawal said this while addressing a presser in Sukkur. He said that he could not comment on whether the first power show of PDM after a months-long break was “successful”, adding that the PPP believed all democratic parties should play their role.
However, it would have been “more effective” if the PDM allowed women to participate in the rally, he said.
“This is not Afghanistan. This is Karachi, capital of Sindh,” he remarked.
Bilawal questioned how a country and a city could be run when “even a home cannot be run without a woman”.
No society can progress until men and women are equal participants in economy and politics, the PPP chairperson added.
Bilawal said further that “Maybe this was a reason that Karachi rejected the PDM and that an impression could not be built as in the past.”
He shared that he had asked Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah to talk to PDM president and Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman and PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif and inform them that “we are present if they need anything.”
