Bilawal Demands Production Orders For Ali Wazir
Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leader Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has demanded National Assembly speaker Asad Qaiser to produce production orders for Pashtun Tahafuz Movement (PTM) leader Ali Wazir.
During a news conference, Bilawal said Ali Wazir’s production orders should be issued so he could attend Friday’s session of the National Assembly.
He also slammed Asad Qaiser saying that: “The speaker of the House needs to explain to himself why no notice was sent to us. How is it that a member of the House was arrested? The speaker needs to explain himself.”
On Monday, an anti-terrorism court (ATC) granted 8-day physical remand of Ali Wazir to Counter Terrorism Department over recent clashes between the security forces and PTM workers in South Waziristan.
Three people were killed and 15 others, including 5 soldiers, were injured in an exchange of fire when Kharqamar check-post was attacked during PTM protests led by MNAs Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir.
The security forces opened fire at a peaceful PTM rally that included National Assembly members Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir, the party’s sources state, adding that both MNAs managed to leave the scene without incurring any injuries.
However, the security forces stated that the PTM workers attacked a check post forcing the forces to arrest them in retaliation.
