PPP supports Fazl, but won't join 'undemocratic' protests: Bilawal

Islamabad (Web Desk): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday said his party will support Jamiat Ulma-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) but will not join undemocratic protests.

Talking to newsmen after the court appearance of Asif Ali Zardari in the fake bank accounts case, Bilawal said that the PPP will withdraw its support if it suspects that the JUI-F chief is acting on the behest of some other force.

He said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and PPP desired to organise a joint political gathering or a procession but Maulana has announced a long march.

“We have called a party meeting to decide how far we can go in supporting him, the PPP chief added."

Responding to a question about his political strategy, Bilawal said that his party would support Rehman at every level except for his plan to stage a sit-in.

Bilawal said his party workers want him to get rid of the incumbent government. m “I will support all political protests but will not take any measures that could hurt the country’’, he said.

Bilawal said that the federal government would try and attack the Sindh government in response to his party's protests, but warned that "they will not be successful."

The PPP chief said that he and his party would bear everything but will not compromise on principles, including his party's stand on the 18th Amendment.
