Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Wednesday disapproved of “celebrations” over the jail sentence of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf founder and former prime minister Imran Khan.

“As a former prime minister [Imran] is not allowed to contest elections, a party is celebrating this development. In 2018, another party had similar celebrations. We are not those who celebrate the plight of political opponents. We are the jiyalas [followers] of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, who did not teach us such negative politics,” Mr Bilawal told an election rally in Batkhela here.

The PPP leader said if people voted his party to power, it would do away with the politics of “hate and division.”

He said the PPP never got a level playing field ahead of and during elections.
