Bilawal Bhutto Zardari bewails 21st constitutional amendment

LONDON: The angry young chairman of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, who is rumoured to have been sidelined by his powerful politician father, Wednesday bewailed the 21st amendment in the constitution of Pakistan.
“Parliament cuts its nose to spite its face,” a rather estranged scion of Bhutto-Zardari family wrote in a post that appeared on his Twitter handle. Lately, reports had been doing the rounds in the media that Bilawal was not happy with his father Asif Ali Zardari over his stringent political babysitting.
It is noteworthy that Zardari, the widower of the former prime minister of Pakistan Benazir Bhutto, also tried to control damage terming these father-son conflict reports as baseless.
“There is no truth in the rumours, propagandized by our rivals, that I and Bilawal are drifting apart,” Zardari said while addressing a memorial rally held here in connection with Shaheed Benzair Bhutto’s seventh death anniversary on December 27.
While his father’s speech was underway Bilawal used social media website Twitter to affirm his father’s denial of any mutual differences.
