Bilawal Bhutto Zardari says IGPs changed frequently in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab, but same denied in Sindh

ISLAMABAD: The PPP Chairman, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, on Thursday said inspector generals police are changed frequently in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab, but the same is denied in Sindh.

Talking to media persons outside the Parliament House, Bilawal said the system of double standards damages the Federation. He said there cannot be two parallel sets of laws in one country.

He said the residents of Islamabad do not even remember that Islamabad’s IGP was changed and sent home because a cow had entered the house of a minister, and then that IG had not answered the phone.

“The IGP was changed over such a trivial matter. A very fantastic IGP was sent to Punjab tasked to oversee the entire Punjab police reforms. He too was changed in a matter of weeks,” he said. But, Bilawal said the issue of the transfer of IG Sindh is setting another example of the complete and utter weakness of Imran Khan’s leadership and his inability to govern, to administrate and to stand by a commitment.

He also criticised the government for convening the National Assembly session before schedule only for tabling an ordinance. He said the government is carrying out legislation through the backdoor. The “Parliament is being undermined ever since this government came into power and this session was not summoned for discussion on important issues.

He said there is no democracy in the behaviour and conduct of this government and it wants the Parliament to be rendered powerless. We were not summoned to discuss the worst economic situation, price hike, and food insecurity,” he said. “We strongly oppose and condemn the ordinances and the President House which has now become a factory of ordinances and we walked out of the National Assembly today to protest that,” he said. The PPP chairman said in order to make any amendment in the law debate is always held between the government and opposition sides, but the government’s attitude is not democratic as it has turned the Presidency into an ordinance factory. Bilawal said the government has once again renewed a series of political arrests. Manzoor Pashteen, MNA Mohsin Dawar, and some young students were arrested for holding a peaceful protest. He said that not only does the PPP condemn this act, but is also trying to make the government understand that they should let democracy prevail. Bilawal said when the PTI staged a sit-in, it was democracy, but the opposition’s sit-in was declared sedition.

The PPP chairman said the whole world is saying that Pakistan is facing financial difficulties and price hike is spiraling out of control, food items are getting costlier and the tariff of power and gas are being increased daily. He said it is becoming more and more difficult for a common man living in this country.

The government instead of giving relief, solving the problems of the people, is further burdening the common man. He said the government should realise that if it has to burden anyone, it should burden the elite and the influential class, but unfortunately, the tradition of this government has been that if it is to give a tax amnesty scheme, then it is not for the small traders or farmers, but it is for the billionaires.
