QUETTA: Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Friday that discarding the outdated ways of thinking, people will have to be made a shareholder in economy and politics.

Addressing the Balochistan High Court Bar in Quetta, Bilawal said he fully realized grief and pain of Baloch people. “We will have to introduce a new era of politics,” he said. The PPP chairman said, “We will move forward eliminating politics of hatred, division and ego. Insha Allah the PPP will form new government. First of all, we will give Baloch people there right.”

He said when Asif Zardari launched Haqooq-e-Balochistan (rights of Baloch people programme), it was a victory of people living in the province. He further stated that 18th Amendment and NFC award announcement was also victories for Baloch people. Bilawal said the PPP and people of Balochistan will collectively make a new history. He said the Peoples Party could change destiny of the people.

“Being the youngest foreign minister I know how much potential the people have here. We can introduce Pakistan to the world community a modern state,” the party chairman said. He asked the people not to hand over the destiny of the state over to two persons only. “The politicians who made blood of people cheaper, should not be given another chance. Let the people decide their country’s fate. Give them a surprise on February 8,” he added.

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.”
