Pakistan People’s Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Co-Chairperson Asif Zardari have said they would not help former prime minister Nawaz Sharif in the current political circumstances, said Senator Farhatullah Babar.
While talking to the media in the federal capital on Saturday, Babar said the PPP leaders do not want to meet Nawaz given the present scenario because if they would do so it would send across a wrong message.
PPP always believed in the politics of reconciliation, but it was Nawaz who would back out, Babar added. Therefore, the senator said, Bilawal and Zardari wanted matters to be solved as per the law. However, Babar added, PPP would intervene and come to the fore if democracy is threatened in any way. About legal proceedings, the PPP senator said he believed the documents in Nawaz’s case were pretty authentic, which would soon take the case to a logical end.
Moreover, he added, Nawaz and every citizen have the right to fair trial under Article 10A (Right to Fair Trial) of the Constitution, which “extends to not only criminal charges but also to civil rights and obligations”. If Nawaz has reservations over laws not been implemented in their true spirit then he can challenge the case, Babar said.
To a question Babar said those who left PPP will soon realise their mistake.
