CHARSADDA: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Sunday said, PDM parties needed clear stance, but, “It seemed like the parties of the PDM are confused,” and added “Opposition parties should at least not get confused in the parliament.”

It seemed like the parties of the PDM are confused,” said Bilawal. “Opposition parties should at least not get confused in the parliament.”
He added that all those political parties which are clear about their political stance are in a better position to give a tough time to the PTI-led government.

“We want a peaceful and progressive Pakistan,” Bilawal said, adding that PPP’s role in working towards the rights and self-determination of provinces will become part of history.
