Without naming the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari claimed that the Shehbaz Sharif-led party faced consequences in the 2018 elections for conspiring against his party in the 2013 polls.

“A conspiracy was made to keep out the party representing the underprivileged class of Punjab,” Bilawal claimed while talking to newsmen after the conclusion of his party’s two-day Central Executive Committee (CEC) meeting.

Continuing his tirade against his former ally, the PPP leader said that “everyone” is aware of how former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) director general Lt Gen (retd) Pasha, former chief justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Chaudhary and a “political party” conducted “RO elections” in 2013.

“In 2013, the PPP was expelled from Punjab in an undemocratic manner. Later this party [PML-N] itself suffered due to this conspiracy in Punjab,” Bilawal said. 

He went on to say that in the 2018 elections, there was an “alliance among” Lt Gen (retd) Faiz, former CJP Saqib Nisar and “a political party” — indirectly pointing towards the Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
