PPP demands strict action against May 9 vandals

KARACHI: The Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has demanded the elements involved in the violent protests that took place on May 9 — following the arrest of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan — be taken to task.

The demand was made on Friday during a meeting of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP’s) Central Executive Committee (CEC) at the Bilawal House.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari and former president Asif Ali Zardari jointly chaired the meeting, in which May 9 was termed a “black day in the history of Pakistan”.

Briefing media persons after the CEC meeting, PPP leader and Federal Minister for Climate Change Sherry Rehman said that the law should come into force to take the due punitive action against the miscreants involved in arson attacks and violence that day.

She said PTI leaders had given orders to perpetrate acts of violence and commit arson attacks in the country following Khan’s arrest and later refused to accept responsibility for the troubled situation that evolved in the country.
