SKARDU: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday while accusing the government of failed foreign policy and laying down arms before contesting the case for Kashmir said that his part won’t accept bargaining over the issue.

Addressing a public gathering in Skardu, he challenged ‘the butcher of Gujrat’ Indian PM Narendra Modi to hold referendum in the occupied Kashmir, adding that the ‘selective’ prime minister doesn’t have capability to become a voice of the Kashmiris.

The PPP chairman said that the Indian PM should hold a rally and referendum in the occupied Valley if he has given rights to Kashmiris.

“Modi has turned the Valley into a prison,” he said and the spirit of freedom cannot be quashed by the threat of military boots. The Indian government cannot rule the hearts of Kashmiris with tanks.

“Modi, you are not a leader but a murderer. You first killed Muslims in Gujrat and now killing innocent Kashmiris. You will be remembered as a murderer in the history.”

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that a democratic government needs to be brought and the “selected” prime minister will have to be sent home in order to save Kashmir from Indian oppression. He said the selected prime minister destroyed the country’s economy and foreign policy.

“The economy of the country has been pawned with the IMF,” he said. “Pakistan has been diplomatically isolated in the world.”

The PPP chairman lambasted the government for burdening the masses with inflation and taxes. He warned the prime minister that if he made a deal on Kashmir, then he would meet a fate that the world would remember.

“Oh you selected rulers, keep your wits or be prepared for ruthless accountability,” Bilawal said.

The PPP chairman further said that only his party could get the Kashmiri people their rights. He said a “selected” [prime minister] has been attacking the 18th Amendment of the constitution. “How can that selected give rights to Gilgit-Baltistan” he questioned.

“If Kashmir is to be saved, then a democratic government will have to be brought,” Bilawal said. “The selected will have to be sent home,” he added.
