Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday claimed that dictatorship has prevailed in the country in the garb of what Prime Minister Imran Khan called ‘Naya Pakistan’. “The present regime gave nothing to its masses but starvation,” he said.
Addressing Lahore High Court Bar Association here on Tuesday, he said that Generals from Ziaul Haq to Parvez Musharraf have mutilated the constitution and distorted the social fabric of Pakistan. Bilawal Bhutto emphasised that the ‘quarters concerned’ give right of appeal to the aggrieved party against the decision handed in suo muto proceedings. Talking about the services of the legal fraternity, he said that the bar council always had been raising voice against dictatorship. He admired the lawyer’s profession and the sacrifices laid down by them adding, “Quaid-e-Azam was also a lawyer who gave us Pakistan”.
