Aitzaz threatens to join Islamabad siege

Staff reporter

Islamabad—Pakistan Peoples Party leader Aitzaz Ahsan on Monday said that although the party was not a part of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s November 2 ‘lockdown’ of Islamabad, it would review its decision if the government resorted to ‘torture’ of political workers. “We believe that Imran Khan is on the right path,” Aitzaz said, adding that the process of accountability should begin with the prime minister and his family. The prime minister has been running away from accountability, he said. The PPP leader claimed Imran Khan’s viewpoint is valid and that institutions have not been discharging their duties. “Had the same allegation been levelled against any other party, the government would have taken action much earlier.” A protest is a democratic right of all parties, he said, adding that some ministers have been misleading the government. “Nawaz Sharif will have to present himself for accountability.”
