Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Assures No Political Prisoners if PPP Comes to Power, Urges Voters to Reject Politics of Hate
On Tuesday, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari assured the public that, if elected, his government would not imprison any political figures in the country. He urged the people to vote for the ‘arrow’ symbol on February 8, emphasizing the need to move away from divisive politics.
Addressing a gathering at the Hockey Ground, Bilawal directed criticism at former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, alleging that if the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader were to secure a fourth term, he would engage in political vendettas.
As the nation approached the 2024 elections, Bilawal urged citizens not to grant Nawaz Sharif another term, emphasizing the power of their vote. He expressed concerns about malice and hatred within the hearts of his political rivals, stating that their politics was rooted in violence.
Bilawal framed the upcoming election as a contest between the tiger (PML-N’s electoral symbol) and the arrow (PPP’s symbol), asserting that they would defeat the tiger with the arrow.
Reflecting on the PPP’s past governance from 2008 to 2013, Bilawal claimed there were no political prisoners during that period. He promised that, if given the opportunity again, his administration would refrain from imprisoning any political figures.
Building Unity and Tackling Challenges: Bilawal’s Vision and Electoral Agenda

Bilawal outlined the PPP’s 10-point electoral agenda, promising to implement it like his late mother, Benazir Bhutto, fulfilled her commitments. The agenda included pledges to increase incomes, provide free electricity, build three million houses with ownership rights for women, expand the Benazir Income Support Programme (BISP), offer interest-free loans to women, issue farmer cards, redirect subsidies from the elite to poor farmers, initiate a crop insurance scheme, introduce a ‘labour card’ for social security, medical treatment, and education, and establish youth centers across the country.
Expressing gratitude to the people of Chiniot, Bilawal thanked them for their warm welcome during his visit in winter, recalling previous visits during the 2018 elections and floods.
