To save his father's corruption, Bilawal Bhutto is ready to fight against military alongside PTM

*ISLAMABAD - There should be no restrictions on freedom of speech, PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said Tuesday after a meeting with a PTM delegation.*

PPP leaders Bilawal, Asif Ali Zardari, Raja Pervez Ashraf and Farhatullah Babar met the PTM delegation in Islamabad.

Mohsin Dawar, who had been elected an MNA from North Waziristan, and Gulalai Ismail represented PTM in the meeting.

The PPP chairperson said that he supports the PTM’s stance on democracy and human rights.

“We may not have the same stance on everything but the PPP’s position on democracy, constitution, and human rights [issues] is before you,” Bilawal said.

It would be better for the country if young politicians talk to each other and have regular contact, he suggested.

“Stopping someone from aggression and bringing them into the mainstream is democracy,” former president Asif Zardari said after the meeting.

“The game never ends,” Zardari said in an apparent reference to the ISPR DG’s press conference on Tuesday.

The meeting between the PTM and PPP leaders comes a day after ISPR DG warned the PTM that no one can fight the state.

“What revenge are you [PTM] talking about? We are just worried about the people that you are inciting otherwise it is not at all hard for us to deal with you,” the head of the army’s media wing remarked.

He said that the PTM leaders threatened people in Wana to stop speaking in favour of Pakistan Army. We didn’t act first because the army chief refrained us from being harsh towards the PTM, he said. “You have taken the liberty that you wanted.”
