Former president of Pakistan and President Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarians (PPPP) Asif Ali Zardari has strongly condemned the arrest of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s (PML-N) leader Khawaja Saad Rafique and Salman Rafique. Spokesman of the former president, Amir Fida Paracha said that Asif Zardari has said that arrest of the Khawaja brothers has exposed the brutalities of the government.The former president said that the targeting of political opponents is attributed to dictators and PTI’s leadership is weakening itself by victimizing the opposition. This is proof that the governing party is compromising on the sovereignty of the Parliament, he added. Amir Fida Paracha said that PPP has always supported the completion of any democratic tenure as it strengthens the country, however the attitude of the PTI leaders is threatening. Considering the fragile economical and political condition of the country, it is very important for the PTI government to focus on solving issues rather than multiplying them, he concluded.Published in Daily Times, December 12th 2018.
