Agreement With TLP: Bilawal Says Govt Hiding Behind NA, Tells PM To ‘Clean Your Own Mess’
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal-Bhutto Zardari has criticised the government for signing an agreement with the banned Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP), saying that the ruling party wants to ‘hide behind National Assembly’ by tabling resolution to expel French ambassador from Pakistan.
“It’s your mess PM, clean up or go home,” he said in a tweet.
Agreement wasnt brought to NA, Govt took action on streets, then banned, people killed, over 500 policemen injured, closed internet, PM didn’t make statement in NA, didnt take NA into confidence at any stage. Now PTI wants to hide behind NA. It’s your mess PM, clean up or go home

Government and the proscribed TLP reached an agreement in the wee hours of Tuesday after which the latter called off its sit-ins. Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid announced that the government would present a resolution in the Parliament seeking expulsion of French ambassador, adding that all cases against TLP workers would be withdrawn.
