He stated this while addressing the National Assembly during its session. Bilawal said that rule of law was imperative to ensure that those who violated the law ate brought under justice. 

He referred to a statement of Mehmood Khan Achakzai that the establishment should have no role in politics, he said that if politicians and political parties respected each other no other institution could dare to interfere in their affairs.

During his speech, Sunni Ittehad Council members stood and came in front of the speaker’s dais and started chanting slogans. Bilawal seemed irritated and said they are using foul language and this attitude is condemnable. 

Later, Sunni Ittehad Council member Gohar Ali Khan was given the floor, who said by affixing Bhutto’s name with your name you cannot become Bhutto.

He said the group of a few families have ruled the country for over 40 years but the situation in the country was pathetic. He said these people have no concern with politics but come to power abd distribute resources and ministries among themselves. 

He said today there was no relative of PTI founder Imran Khan ad all its members have been elected by the masses.
