Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Sherry Rehman on Wednesday slammed the government, telling them that political stability in the country cannot be achieved by throwing political rivals in prison.
“You can’t have political stability by locking the parliament and the ordinance,” she said. “This government has lost its respect by taking revenge from opponents.”
Sherry said that the opposition had delayed their protest. “This is the voice of the people—we should have taken out containers long ago,” she said.
The PPP senator said that the government was arresting political opponents without even conducting a trial or filing a reference against them.
“This one-sided accountability is making a mockery of the government,” she said.
The PPP, PML-N, JUI-F and other political parties have accused the PTI-led government of making fake cases against opposition leaders.
Former president Asif Ali Zardari, his sister Faryal Talpur, former railways minister Khawaja Saad Rafique, former Punjab law minister Rana Sanaullah and other political leaders are in jail over corruption and other charges.
