SUKKUR: Opposition leader from the PPP is thrown in jail, but a person holding the same position who hails from Lahore roams freely, PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said while taking a jibe at the Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Shahbaz Sharif.
Bilawal was referring to veteran PPP leader Khursheed Shah, who was arrested by the National Accountability Bureau’s Sukkur chapter on September 18, 2019, in an accumulation of assets beyond means case. Back in July, the Sindh High Court had dismissed a petition seeking Shah’s post-arrest bail.
“We warn the government to oppress others only as much as it can bear oppression itself,” said Bilawal while addressing party workers in Sukkur.
“How long could you stay imprisoned if it were you?” Bilawal asked PM Imran Khan.
He also invited the Opposition to support the PPP, stressing that the party is capable of “not only giving a tough time to the government but also overthrowing it”.
“PPP is going to form a government soon, therefore, PPP workers should brace themselves to employ efforts,” said Bilawal.
He said that the PPP is up to save Pakistan as well as people’s jobs.
“They [Centre] are trying to hurt PPP supporters but they should know that it is their first and last rule,” said Bilawal.
