The PPP administrator made the disclosure during a selective meeting with BBC Urdu, wherein he talked about a few points, including the impending Gilgit-Baltistan decisions and the 11-party resistance collusion.
In October, Nawaz had tended to the PDM’s Gujranwala rally and blamed the security foundation for being behind his ouster as PM and for “bringing Imran Khan into power”.

He had likewise named Lt Gen Faiz Hameed as being behind everything.
In his meeting with BBC Urdu, Bilawal said neither Nawaz nor his gathering had raised naming the military or ISI bosses when the PDM’s plan was being readied.
“During the all-parties meeting, there was banter on whether the fault ought to be laid on one organization or the whole foundation,” Bilawal stated, adding that “it was concluded that a solitary foundation would not be named, the foundation would.”

“It was a stun for me on the grounds that, regularly, we don’t talk like this at conventions. However, Nawaz heads his own gathering and I can’t control what he says, much the same as he can’t control what I say,” Bilawal said.
When asked whether the resistance coalition was naming the nation’s top military initiative in an offer to pressurize them to leave, the PPP executive said taking names was Nawaz and his gathering’s “individual choice”, underlining that the resistance didn’t need the military administration to leave.
“Let me clarify that this (renunciation of military authority) isn’t a piece of our requests and doesn’t mirror our position.”

“These are not the sort of claims you make against anybody during a convention. Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I have not had the occasion to meet Nawaz face to face, which is significant, so we can talk about the issue in detail.”
Be that as it may, Bilawal stated, he will “trust that Nawaz will present proof supporting his cases”.
The PPP boss likewise said that in his view, the foundation had a few implications and it was unrealistic to point towards one person. “Let me likewise state that this won’t be examined at conventions.”
Bilawal additionally said that tenderizing Prime Minister Imran Khan into power can’t be credited to only one individual. He additionally scattered the idea that the PPP had not transparently expressed its position utilizing the PDM stage.
“The PDM appeared during an all-parties gathering called by the PPP and the plan of the collusion is the approach of the apparent multitude of gatherings.
“Nawaz can talk in his own way, that is his right. I will talk in my own way.”
