Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Prime Minister Imran Khan wants to turn every institution in the country, including the Pakistan Army and the ISI, into his Tiger Force.

Addressing a rally in Karachi on Sunday evening, Bilawal announced to launch protests against the government.

He also said the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) would not allow anyone other than voters to determine who was going to be the next prime minister of the country.

The rally at the Bagh-e-Jinnah was held on the 14th anniversary of the Karsaz blasts.

Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah said the PPP would get Bilawal Bhutto Zardari elected as the next prime minister.

Formed by the government, the Tiger Force is a group of PTI activists who assist local authorities in emergency relief activities.

Bilawal said everyone could see that PPP's government was going to take power. He said only the PPP had raised its voice against the poor performance of the PTI government and it would continue its protest until Imran Khan is driven out of government.

He said the PPP wanted to remove Imran Khan because his government had brought disaster everywhere. "It is destruction, not tabdeeli (change)."

"Imran Khan wants to turn every institution into his Tiger Force. He first attacked the Parliament, [that is ] the National Assembly and the Senate, to turn it into the Tiger Force," Bilawal said.

He added that Imran Khan then assailed the judiciary and, in an attempt to subdue it, his government filed references against some judges.

Bilawal said the PTI government also launched a similar attack against the Election Commission of Pakistan, using abusive language and threats of references against the chief election commissioner.

The PPP chief said the PTI government also tried to convert the Punjab Police and the provincial bureaucracy into his party's Tiger Force. Imran Khan is also trying to make the mainstream media and social media into his Tiger Force, Bilawal said.

"If we allowed him, he [would] want to change entire Pakistan into [his] Tiger Force. He even wants to turn our Army and our ISI into his Tiger Force. We won't allow Khan sahib. We won't allow this selected … to destroy our democracy, politics, and economy," Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said.

He said the countdown for Imran Khan to go home had started.

Bilawal announced that PPP workers would protest in their home districts against the government and on November 30, the PPP would commemorate its foundation day by holding the main ceremony in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province where Imran's PTI government rules.

He said PPP's jiyalas would not spare Imran Khan.

Bilawal's call for protests coincides with the Pakistan Democratic Movement's decision to launch nationwide agitation against the government over inflation.

The PPP chairperson said the PTI government had caused poverty and unemployment in the country. "It has become difficult to live, and even more difficult to die," he said.

He promised jobs and prosperity for people in the event the PPP come to power.

Aseefa Bhutto Zardari also attended the rally.

Earlier, a large number of PPP activists continued to pour into the Bagh-e-Jinnah ground as the event started.

Murad Ali Shah opened his address by criticizing the federal government for food inflation and petroleum price hike.

He said Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was to deliver the masses from the oppressors. "We will get him elected as prime minister as soon as possible," he said.

Saeed Ghani also said Bilawal was the next prime minister of the country.

The rally

On October 18, 2007, over 150 people were killed and 450 others were wounded in twin explosions during the homecoming rally of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto. The attack shook Sindh and left an air of sorrow in the province.

The rally at the Bagh-e-Jinnah was led by PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. Thousands of workers attended.

Bilawal remembered his mother by reciting poetry.

The preparations for the rally were completed on Sunday morning. The stage was set while seating arrangements were being overseen by the leaders. Containers were placed both inside and outside the venue for security purposes.

The PTI government's recent decision to increase petrol and electricity prices has reignited hopes in the Opposition to topple PM Imran Khan's government. PPP's spirits were further lifted after its recent success in the cantonment board elections.

Traffic plan

Ahead of the rally, the traffic police issued a plan for Karachi. People leaving for Bagh-e-Jinnah from the West district can take the route from Golimar, M.A Jinnah Road, and Numaish.

People coming from Korangi and other parts of Sindh can park their cars at the China Ground near Kashmir Road.

PPP supporters from Malir will have to walk towards the venue from Preedy Street. In the South district, people can enter the venue from the Mazar-e-Quaid's VIP Gate road.

People coming from Lyari can take the Lyari Expressway.
