Bilawal says,Sharif brothers serve only relatives and friends LAHORE: Following in the footsteps of his father Asif Ali Zardari, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has severely criticised the Sharif brothers and alleged that their “style of governance is all about obliging their relatives and friends”.
Addressing a gathering of charged party workers at the Bilawal House here on Saturday, he criticised the two brothers over their failure to overcome the energy crisis and ending corruption, and for a “style of governance aimed at fooling the people”.
The PPP chairman also questioned the “establishment’s act” of terming the PPP “a financer of terrorists”, apparently a reference to the Dr Asim Hussain case.

Earlier, Bilawal Bhutto was accompanied by his sister Bakhtawar when he entered a hall packed with about 4,000 charged PPP workers. The other speakers had to cut short their speeches because the workers demanded to hear their chairman speak after waiting for hours.
“Mian sahib! Your anti-agriculture policy has forced farmers to burn their crops and you are talking about metro buses. Who are you fooling? You are fooling no one but yourself. In the tenure of BB (Benazir Bhutto) when the farmers could not sell their potatoes my mother said the government would buy the crop from them even if she had to throw it into the sea. BB was people’s leader but in the regime of ‘Khadim-i-Ala (Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif)’ the farmers are forced to throw their crops on the road. This is the difference between BB and Khadim-i-Ala who is neither a Khadim (servant) nor Ala (great),” he said.
He asked the chief minister to suggest the name by which the latter should be known after failing to fulfil his promise of ending loadshedding within six months of coming to power.
