When a reporter asked the PPP chairman whether Maryam Nawaz took a dig at him by saying that “another selected was being prepared,”
He said the long march should not have been delayed adding that our party was well prepared for the long march and our rooms in Rawalpindi were also booked.

The PPP chairman said that some friends wanted to boycott the Senate and by-elections but the PDM did irreparable damage to the government on both fronts. Those who wanted us to stay out of the system, they proved wrong and should reconsider their position.
Answering a question, he said that Nawaz Sharif made demand for accountability of all today, we have been saying for three generations that everyone should be held accountable. We are trying to keep all parties united, if we do not stay united then only Imran Khan will benefit.
He said that the job of the opposition is to harm the government. There is an atmosphere of mistrust in the National and Punjab Assemblies, opposition should utilize this situation.
Bilawal said that we must give the government a tough time inside and outside Parliament. I will hold a separate press conference regarding PDM, he added.
