KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party Patron-in-Chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Friday ‘advised’ Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to keep an eye on the elements in his cabinet who want to destabilise the democratic system and disrupt unity among democratic forces fighting the dictatorial monsters that are already raising their heads.
In a statement issued by the Bilawal House, the PPP chief condemned raid on the house of former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and termed it as part of PML-N government’s ‘witch-hunt’ against PPP and its leaders.
“It is matter of shame that PML-N government is soft on terrorists who got away with over 50,000 murders of people and comes hard on the opposition leaders and former prime ministers,” he said, and added that former prime ministers Yousaf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervez Ashraf played pivotal role together with then president Asif Ali Zardari in strengthening of democracy. “Targeting them is tantamount to axing the very traditions of democracy these democratic leaders introduced and sacrificed themselves for the cause,” he said.
Bilawal said his party won’t tolerate any victimisation of its leaders and asked the government ‘not to test our patience any more else we have the experience of fighting against the dictatorial regimes but we are calm only in the interest of democracy and its stability’.
