Bilawal’s answer on Pakistani dynasty politics wasn’t ‘good’; here’s what he said
On Apr 14, Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari was interviewed by CNN’s Becky Anderson, where he was asked whether the existence of dynasties in Pakistani politics is what’s wrong with the system. Bilawal started off by answering in the affirmative and then tried giving the example of Hilary and Bill Clinton, Anderson cut him off and said, “That’s not a good answer, this is a very important question.” According to many viewers, it was an embarrassing moment for Bilawa as he tried to continue with his answer, stammering.
More from the interview:
Figuring out his answer, Bilawal stated dynasties do exist but at the end of day what matters is that who the people of Pakistan want, “As far as Mr.Khan is concerned, his entire party is full of dynasties, his children may be underage at the moment, but his provincial and federal government, his political representations rely heavily on dynasties,” adding that he himself was forced into Pakistani politics at a very young age.
Anderson mentioned how Imran Khan has the public’s support as enormous crowds are stepping out to stand with him, “Of course little fascists all over the world enjoy their cult following but that doesn’t mean Pakistan should be dictated by him.”
