Former Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mahmood Qureshi (SMQ) claims PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto allegedly “begged” PML-N supreme leader Nawaz Sharif for 10 seats in National Assembly.
He made the statements while addressing a public gathering in Multan on late Sunday night. The PTI Vice-Chairman SMQ was amping up the crowd in Multan for a PTI rally next month. As a result, he lashed out at the incumbent government.
Shah Mahmood noted how Multan had changed. He said in the 1970s Multan elected Zulfikar Ali Bhutto as a Member of the National Assembly (MNA). However, now, his grandson Bilawal Bhutto is begging for 10 NA seats in London. It seems as if SMQ aimed to highlight the difference
Furthermore, the Former foreign minister said that turncoats will get very few votes in the next general election and that the nation has categorically rejected the ‘imported’ government.
Seat adjustment formula
PPP’s Bilawal Bhutto recently met with PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif in London. During the meeting, a wide range of political matters was discussed. Interestingly, there were many speculations that Bilawal may seek key positions for PPP in Punjab.
According to reports, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari floated a seat adjustment proposal for next general elections during his meeting with PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.
Sources said Bilawal Zardari had proposed that if the PML-N made an electoral alliance with the PPP in Punjab, then his party would make a similar alliance with the PML-N in urban areas of Sindh in next general elections.
The PPP had sought the support of PML-N on 10 NA and 20 PA seats in Punjab, sources say, adding that in return, PPP will support PML-N on 5 NA seats in urban Sindh.
Meanwhile, there are also contradictory reports claiming that Bilawal made no such demands. In fact, he went to London to discuss the strengthening of democracy to propose a stronger working relationship with PML-N.
