PPP parts way with allies: Independent election path ahead

Expressing the party's commitment to a revolutionary manifesto, Bilawal asserted that PPP views elections as a competition and is unafraid of the democratic process.

On Wednesday, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari announced the party’s decision to sever ties with its allies due to their lack of interest in tackling crucial issues like inflation and terrorism. Speaking at the commemoration event for the 16th death anniversary of Benazir Bhutto in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh, Bilawal declared that PPP would independently contest the upcoming elections, adopting the distinctive “Arrow” mark as its symbol.

Expressing the party’s commitment to a revolutionary manifesto, Bilawal asserted that PPP views elections as a competition and is unafraid of the democratic process. He emphasized the necessity of a government dedicated to addressing the common man’s problems, asserting PPP’s readiness to take on that responsibility.

He underscored the party’s dedication to the dreams of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto, evident in the 18th constitutional amendment and the allocation of NFC awards to provinces.

Bilawal outlined a 10-point election agenda, focusing on welfare initiatives, including doubling salaries within five years, providing free solar energy for economically disadvantaged individuals, improving the education system, offering free health services, constructing houses for flood-affected and economically distressed individuals, and expanding welfare programs.
