PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto diagnosed with COVID-19: reports

PPP leader Bilawal Bhutto may miss the engagement ceremony of his sister, Bakhtawar after speculations suggest he is suffering from COVID-19

PPP leader Bilawal Bhutto may miss his sister’s engagement ceremony after speculations suggest that he is suffering from COVID-19, reported senior anchorperson Kamran Khan on Wednesday. Bilawal’s coronavirus test results are due today. He went into self-isolation after his political secretary Jameel Soomro tested positive for coronavirus.

According to the sources, the entire staff of Bilawal House in Karachi has been directed to undergo COVID-19 tests on the directives issued by President Asif Ali Zardari. The staff, including security personnel, will not be allowed to enter inside without a PCR Test.

In his tweet, the senior journalist further informed that Bilawal would be spending the next days in strict isolation. He caught the virus after Peshawar Jalsa of the Pakistan Democratic Movement last week.


Shahbaz Gill, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM), had expressed his concern about the disparity that is being shown between the ‘common’ person and people invited to Bakhtawar’s wedding ceremony.

In a tweet, he said that former President Asif Ali Zardari has made corona test mandatory for attending his daughter Bakhtawar’s engagement ceremony and has asked guests to come to Bilawal’s house after having undergone corona test; otherwise, don’t come. But on the other hand, you invite the common man to public meetings, and why don’t you care for their lives. He further described this as ‘tyrannical.’

Earlier confronting the criticism, PPP leader Nabil Gabol said that those who love their lives should not join the political rallies. On Monday, in a TV show, he said, if people love their lives, they must avoid joining political rallies amid the Covid-19 outbreak. He spoke to Kashif Abbasi, a prominent anchorperson, in his show Off The Record, when he said that Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) is only holding political rallies and protests. Still, it is up to the people at the end of the day whether they want to join.

He said his party, the incumbent Sindh government, will keep organizing their rallies and political processions and will not stop anyone from joining them alongside the PDM alliance. Gabol added that if the second wave of Covid is so deadly, then the incumbent federal government should impose a lockdown and ban the political power shows.

PPP and all the other oppositions are planning the next rally at Multan on November 30th. Punjab Government is adamant not to permit the opposition party to conduct a rally in Multan.
