LAHORE: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has said the party’s “relations” with the “establishment” is based on media speculation and demanded a neutral role of the “establishment”.Talking to senior journalists in the provincial capital on Tuesday, the PPP chairman said the long march would be successful if the “establishment opts to play a neutral role.” “We have never been interested in [forging relations] with the establishment, and we never will be,” he said. Last month, the PPP had said the anti-government long march from Karachi to Islamabad would take place on February 27, with Bilawal demanding immediate and transparent elections in the country. He had said that the nation wants to get rid of the “selected” government and a transparent election is the only solution. Bilawal said PPP “always” acts for the betterment of the Parliament and democracy in the country, as he shared that the party would opt for a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Imran Khan and not besiege the Parliament.

If we wish to remove the government, then we will do it in line with the Constitution Taking a jibe at PML-N, he said if the party has the support of 34 members of the National Assembly from PTI, then it should bring a motion of confidence against the premier.
