Nawaz in abroad after conviction but Zardari in jail on allegations: Bilawal
December 9, 2019
KARACHI (92 News) – PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari accused the government for adopting double standards, saying that former premier Nawaz Sharif is in abroad despite being convicted but former president Asif Ali Zardari in jail only on base of allegations. Speaking to the journalists after meeting his father Zardari outside the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) on Monday, the PPP chairman said that the cases of Mian sb and Zardari are different, explaining that the difference is innocence until proven guilty and that Zardari is in jail without a conviction. Bilawal said they have selected Dr Nadeem Qamar as Zardari’s doctor as he is a heart specialist and the family knows him. “The government’s doctors pressing concern was heart-related and we had permission to get one doctor so we went with Dr Qamar,” he added. He mentioned that the PPP would not be silenced and won’t back down. “The public doesn’t want to watch a puppet show. The government is pressurising and burdening the public,” he said. Bilawal Bhutto said his father has told him that the medical board’s report has yet to come, adding that the report will be presented in court, after which the court will decide on the Zardari’s plea for bail on medical grounds. The PPP chairman said that the party has decided to hold Benazir Bhutto’s death anniversary at the place of her martyrdom and he said that the ‘selected government’ will be called out. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari would lead a country-wide campaign to prepare for a massive showdown at a public gathering aimed at commemorating the death anniversary of his mother and PPP leader Benazir Bhutto.
