PTI seeks pro-Israel US Congressman Brad Sherman to lobby against PDM govt
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Fawad Chaudhry thinks “consequences of Ali Bilal alias Zile Shah’s murder will be bigger than the PDM government estimated” because a US lawmaker has taken notice of the killing.
Sherman is a Democrat representing California’s 32nd congressional district.
Earlier, he spoke over the phone with former prime minister Imran Khan and met Dr Asif Mehmood, a Pakistani philanthropist and Democratic candidate running against Young Kim in the state’s 40th congressional district.
The US congressman stated that everyone wanted to see a “calm, orderly, democratic and prosperous Pakistan where Pakistanis can have the freedom to have an open and political dialogue”.
He went on to say that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) — with whom the country is in talks for a long-delayed loan programme — also wanted to see a stable Pakistan that followed the rule of law
