Bilawal Bhutto, Pakistan’s Rahul Gandhi, announces that he won’t criticise PM Imran Khan amid coronavirus outbreak

Bilawal Bhutto and Rahul Gandhi have quite a few things in common and are separated by geopolitical lines.

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bila­wal Bhu­tto-Zardari, who is known as Pakistan’s alter ego of Gandhi-scion Rahul Gandhi on Thursday announced a “no criticism policy” against Prime Minis­ter Imran Khan and his government over its response to the coronavirus pandemic. 

Addressing a press conference at the Sindh Assem­bly, Bhutto-Zardari hinted that Pakistan was heading towards a lockdown and stated that it was not the right time to criticise the Imran Khan government but to co-operate with the government.

“It’s not the time to criticise the prime minister and I would not blame him or anyone. Instead, I should hope that he and every single citizen of Pakistan can win this fight. There is a need for increased coordination and unity,” said Bilawal Bhutto a day after the country reported its first two deaths from the virus.

Bilawal Bhutto, the heir of Bhutto family and Pakistan People’s Party chairman has time and again matched Rahul Gandhi in producing as many bloopers as the Gandhi-scion. Not only that, there have been times when he has given a tough fight to Wayanad MP by making equally stupid statements.

The so-called youth leaders of both countries share so many similarities in terms of political and social background. The political leaders have much in common and are only separated on geopolitical lines. Bilawal, like Rahul Gandhi, comes from a family of politicians. His mother, Benazir Bhutto and maternal grandfather Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, were both Prime Ministers of Pakistan. His father, Asif Ali Zardari, has been President of Pakistan. His paternal grandfather and uncles and aunts from either side of family have been politicians of Pakistan. Rahul Gandhi’s father, grandmother and great grandfather have all been Prime Ministers of India. His mother has been an MP and now his sister has also joined active politics.

However, for a change, Bhutto has spoken some sense by expressing solidarity with the Pakistan government in the challenging times of global pandemic of COVID-19 contrast to the stand taken by his Indian counterpart. Ever since the outbreak of COVID-19 occurred in India, the Gandhi-scion has been making irresponsible comments targetting the government rather than giving productive assessment to tackle the global epidemic.

Rahul Gandhi, who gave a series of lectures to the Modi government on handling the Corona crisis last week, however, was as usual high on rhetorics. When asked about the specific suggestions he wished to give to Narendra Modi government on handling the coronavirus, Rahul Gandhi in his quintessential style, ran away from the responsibility by stating that he was not an expert on the subject of Coronavirus.
