Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari while talking about his son, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, said that he is a young man and easily gets angry.

“Bilawal is a young man; he gets angry quickly. I am used to showing patience for 67 years. He is Oxford returned; he does not believe in such things. He says a promise was made to me [by the federal government]; where is the money? Either you shouldn’t have made the promise, now that you have, you should fulfill it,” said Zardari when talking about his son’s statement that PPP can leave ministries if promises made to flood victims were not fulfilled.

Addressing a ceremony at the inauguration of Seed Subsidy programme for flood-affected farmers in Karachi on Sunday, March 5, Bilawal said, “Prime Minister [Shehbaz Sharif] and the federal government made promises for the flood victims, and those promises and announcements need to be fulfilled. I will be talking to the premier; we [will] take up this issue in the National Assembly.”


“Wherever these promises were made need to fulfilled, otherwise it will be very difficult for us [PPP] to continue working in the ministry,” added Bilawal.
