Opposes initiation of cases against Imran Khan
Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has expressed reservations over the population and housing census and said issues be resolved before moving ahead with the exercise.
Talking to media persons here Wednesday, the PPP chairman hoped that the population census would not be made controversial.
Answering a question about reports that the government would initiate cases against Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan under cybercrime and defamation laws, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari termed it as an attack on democracy and freedom of speech. He said the PPP would oppose this move.
To another question, he said he did not get security in Punjab and his Multan public meeting was cancelled for this reason. At the same time PPP activists are being killed in Punjab while the situation in Sindh is far better.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said they would welcome the Prime Minister in Sindh and provide security for holding public meetings in the province.
Bilawal welcomed Prime Minister (PM) Nawaz Sharif’s decision of holding public gatherings in Sindh, but said workers of PPP are being killed and attacked in Punjab. He demanded equal political rights for PPP in Punjab.
Bilawal further said that Sindh and Balochistan both have reservations regarding population census, adding “we do not want to make this matter controversial.”
The chairman also opposed the ban that is put on social media by the government in which no one is allowed to talk against government. He said that this step of government is not democratic by any means as it represents ideology of dictator.—INP
