Bilawal Wants PTI To Sack ‘Three Federal Ministers Hand-In-Glove With Terrorists’
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that three of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government’s federal ministers were ‘hand-in-glove with terrorists’ and that he wanted the PTI to sack them.
Addressing a press conference after meeting with Agha Siraj Durrani the the Sindh Assembly, Bilawal took jabs at the PTI government. “Three of the federal ministers are hand-in-glove with terrorists. I won’t reveal their names, but will do so if government does not take action,” he said, according to a story published in Express Tribune.
These ministers have historic links with banned organizations, said Bilawal. He added that one of the federal ministers was seen with members of banned outfit during elections and he still has connections with them.
He continued that another was publicly seen saying that no action must be taken against such outfits. Bilawal said that another minister comes to power in every ‘selected’ government and is mouthpiece of undemocratic values.
The PPP chief demanded implementation of the National Action Plan (NAP) and said that Prime Minister Imran Khan must take action against such individuals to prove that the government is actually serious about taking action against banned outfits.
Bilawal also accused Finance Minister Asad Umar of having links with a banned outfit. “The leader of a UN-banned organisation suddenly appeared on the media in the last general elections with Asad Umar and announced he would join and support PTI.”
He said that PTI must distance itself from the militants and banned outfits if it wants to win opposition’s trust.
Earlier this month, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry announced that the government had taken a firm decision that there would be a stern action against all militant groups.
