ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari said that his party would strongly oppose "illegal annexation" of Sindh's islands through the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government's presidential ordinance.
He asked, "What is the difference between the PTI government's annexation of Sindh's islands, and Indian Prime Minister Modi's move in occupied Kashmir?"
Bilawal said that the PPP would oppose the PTI's move in the national and the provincial assemblies as well as in the Senate.
According to Bilawal's tweet, "The Pakistan People's Party will oppose the illegal annexation of Sindh's Islands through Presidential ordinance by the PTI government. I ask how is this act any different to Modi's actions in occupied Kashmir? Move will be opposed in National, Provincial Assembly & the Senate."
In another tweet, the PPP Chairman said that the increase in Asif Ali Zardari's appearances in the courts was a government response to the formation of the PPP's All Parties Conference (APC) and the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM).
He said that at a time when the country was facing the second wave of coronavirus, former president Zardari was being summoned to court several times a week.
He said that the hearing of cases relevant to Sindh in Rawalpindi was not only "unconstitutional" but also posed more dangers.
