Bilawal: No one can snatch away jobs granted by parliament

Our Correspondent

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday said that “no one can snatch away jobs given by the parliament”, vowing to appeal a Supreme Court verdict that declared a PPP-era law unconstitutional and illegal.

Under the PPP-era Sacked Employees (Reinstatement) Ordinance Act 2010 law, a number of people had been employed or given promotions who had been forcibly sacked from various institutions and departments by successive governments during 1996 and 2007.

The SC, however, found that the SERA extended undue advantage to a certain class of citizens, thereby violating fundamental rights under Articles 4, 9 and 25 and being void under Article 8 of the Constitution.

Earlier this month, PPP had appealed to the Supreme Court to review its verdict that declared SERA 2010 illegal and unconstitutional.

In his address to a worker’s convention in the city, Bilawal said that PPP will provide relief to all those people from whom jobs have been snatched.

Speaking of the three-year performance of the PTI government, he said: “Prime Minister Imran Khan is celebrating three years of destruction in Islamabad.”
