NEW DELHI (NEWS): Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has left Pakistan for Dubai after developing differences with his father President Asif Ali Zardari over the issue of allotment of tickets for the upcoming elections and handling of some issues.
A PTI report from Islamabad said that Bilawal, who is patron-in-chief of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), seems to developed differences with his father and aunt Faryal Talpur over various issues, including the allotment of tickets in Sindh and the government’s handling of various issues.
The 24-year-old Bilawal reportedly expressed his unhappiness to his father over the handling of the case of child activist Malala Yousafzai who was shot by terrorists. He was also not happy with the government’s response to the bomb attacks on Shias in Quetta that have killed more than 200 people.
PTI said when he protested to his father that some party workers have been ignored while allotting tickets in Sindh, Zardari tried to pacify Bilawal that once his political grooming was over, he would get full command of the party.
But this didn’t pacify Bilawal who was reported as saying, “If I had to vote, even I wouldn’t vote for the PPP.’’ In a huff, he left for Dubai.
However, the PPP says Bilawal left for “security concerns.”
The UK-educated Bilawal, who turns 25 in September, was picked up by her mother Benazir Bhutto in her will to lead the PPP which was created by the late Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in the late 1960s.
