Bilawal urges NA speaker to issue production order of Zardari, other MNAs
ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari raised his voice for not issuing the production orders of former president Asif Ali Zardari and other lawmakers.
Addressing on the floor of the house, the PPP chairman demanded National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser to issue production order of Zardari so that he can also participate in the parliament proceedings.
Bilawal while urging the NA speaker to issue production orders for Zardari including four MNAs, how can they deprive these areas in the budget session?
“What’s going on today, this is humiliating the democracy and National Assembly,” he termed. “Zardari remained President of Pakistan and remained in jail for 11 long years, but no charge against him was proven,” he added.
On the other hand, earlier today, Bilawal took his Twitter and appreciated Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) for speaking up for democratic constitutional right regardless of political differences. He said that MQM had demanded to issue production order of former president Asif Ali Zardari on the floor of National Assembly on Tuesday.
“Innocent until proven guilty is a right not a privilege,” he added.
I must appreaciate MQM for speaking up for democratic constitutional right regardless of political differences. On the floor of the house yesterday they demanded the production order of President Zardari. Innocent until proven guilt is a right not a privilege.
