PPP to seek Zardari?s bail on medical grounds: Bilawal

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Monday the party would file a petition the next day seeking bail of former president Asif Ali Zardari on medical grounds.Talking to media after meeting with his father at PIMS hospital here, Bilawal said the PPP would not retreat from its political point of view. We do not trust Pakistani doctors, he added.Bilawal said the PPP had decided to hold Benazir Bhutto s death anniversary at Rawalpindi s Liaquat Bagh where the former prime minister was assassinated 12 years ago.Replying to a question about the Supreme Court s recent decision to extend the tenure of the Army chief, Bilawal said everyone was waiting for the apex court s detailed order to get guidance. As I understand the detailed order will give clear guidelines as it did for the parliamentarians on its ruling about the 18th Amendment, he said.He said the PPP would stay positive and hope for a consensus but the Prime Minister did not seem interested in a consensus. The reaction of our Prime Minister after the SC verdict made it clear that he only wants to antagonise opposition, Bilawal said, adding: We can keep no hope from the Prime Minister. Bilawal said Zardari had heeded to the request of his sister Asifa Bhutto to move court for his bail and now they would file a petition.
