ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday said that wouldn't allow revision in 18th amendment even if his whole family is arrested. Speaking to the journalists in Islamabad after hearing of former president Asif Ali Zardari, the PPP chairman mentioned that the current puppet government will not pressurize the PPP. "Arrest my whole family, don't let any change in the 18th amendment," he added. Bilawal Bhutto also said that Islamabad has been taken hostage, adding, "You are so afraid of Zardari that at one hearing all the police of Islamabad deployed here." "The puppet is sitting in the Prime Minister's House, this puppet democracy will not work," the PPP chairman said. He also complained that party workers and leader were not allowed to enter the court and even lawyers faced difficulties in coming to the court. He further asked that does such things happen in an independent state. "What authorities were trying to hide from the public and lawyers and is government so afraid of Zardari," he raised question. Earlier, an accountability court on Monday ruled that former president Asif Ali Zardari and former premier Yousuf Raza Gillani will be indicted in the Toshakhana reference on September 9. Zardari appeared before court to attend a hearing in the reference. The accountability court heard the Toshakhana reference against Zardari and will frame charges against the PPP leader on September 9. The accountability court also summoned Omni Group owner Anwar Majeed and his son Abdul Ghani Majeed, named in the case, to appear on next hearing on Sept 9 for indictment and directed all accused to furnish a surety bond of Rs2 million each. Over the course of the hearing, Zardari’s lawyer Farooq H Naek complained to the judge that they had considerable difficulty reaching court because of police erecting barriers and setting up check posts on all roads leading to it. PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, his sister Aseefa Bhutto and some party leaders also reached the accountability court to show solidarity with the former president. The party leadership had directed its members of the Parliament and People’s Lawyers Forum to reach Islamabad. As part of stringent security measures, police blocked all roads leading to court by placing barriers and barbed wire. Some party leaders and supporters complained of being denied access to the court.
