Sindh police has been insulted, says Bilawal
KARACHI, October 20: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has demanded an inquiry by the Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa and the DG ISI Lt. General Faiz Hameed into the Karachi incident as to who were the two persons who entered the house and took away IGP Sindh Police.
Addressing a press conference at Media Cell Bilawal House here on Tuesday evening, the PPP Chairman said that incident happened to Maryam Nawaz Sharif and Captain (Retired) Mohammad Safdar was shameful and highly condemnable as they were our guests to attend the PDM jalsa.
“It is the authority of Chief Minister Sindh to conduct an inquiry. But those institutions who are answerable they should also hold their probe because we cannot afford such a precedence,” he added.
PPP Chairman said that he can’t tolerate the issue the way it happened for it has crossed several redlines.
“Police officers are going on leave en masse as they and their institution has been insulted. They are asking who were the two persons who entered the house of IGP Sindh at 4 am and where they took him to,” he added.
He pointed out that Police is being used as political wing of PTI while verdicts about Punjab Police and other provinces remain different than Sindh Police.
In Punjab, IGP has been transferred in last two years. “If the Karachi incident was planned as a conspiracy to defame us than surely it was a bad advice,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that such incidents gives the impression that there’s a government within the government and a government above and under the government.
To a question, he said that his Gilgit-Baltistan electioneering drive schedule was prepared months but he would try to find out a private plane to attend PDM Jalsa in Quetta if there was fair weather else he would address the rally through video link. However, he said there would be 100% attendance of the PPP in all the PDM protests.
To another question, the PPP Chairman further pointed out that island ordinance has caused huge damage in Sindh and there is no other way except to reject the ordinance through resolution in Sindh Assembly.
Those who were present at the Press conference include Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, Ministers Nasir Shah, Saeed Ghani, Aajiz Dhamrah and Sehar Karman.
