The former president expressed that regardless of the fact whether Nawaz Sharif goes to Madina or Landhi Jail, he will be the one sending meals for the prime minister.
He said that the party will continue its struggle till Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif leaves office.
“If this is all what had to be done in Panamagate, then why so much time was wasted.”
“What have the Sharifs given to the people of Pakistan? They didn’t give electricity nor water but in their time the country`s debt doubled. All the four provinces want relief from you”

Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto addressing the rally criticised the Supreme Court verdict on the Panama Leaks case and said that the apex court’s decision proved that there is one law for Sharifs and another for masses.
He said that no law applies to the Sharif family.
“What can the nation expect from the Joint Investigation Team comprising officers appointed by them (the ruling party),” he said.
The PPP chairman said that the apex court’s verdict did not allow the PM to go scot-free, adding that the two judges of the bench in the dissenting note went against the PM.
