PPP leadership also directed Party’s Senators and MNAs to actively participate in the upcoming legislation for extending constitutional rights of FATA and its merger into Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.
Meanwhile, Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has strongly condemned the barbaric massacre of Palestinians at the hands of Israeli forces and urged the world community raise their voice to stop incessant ethnic-cleansing of the people of Palestine.
In a statement issued here, the PPP Chairman said bloodshed in Palestine can unleash anger and protests not only in the Muslim country but the world over. “International community cannot afford silence over this barbaric genocide as bloodshed will provoke more bloodshed instead of peace,” Bilawal Bhutto Zardari added.
Meantime, Pakistan Peoples Party leader Senator Taj Haider has said that the statement of Mian Nawaz Sharif on Mumbai attacks is a big support to Narendar Modi in general elections in India, which are round the corner. It also provides Mr. Modi with an ample justification to continue barbaric suppression of freedom lovers in Kashmir.
Senator Taj Haider said that this statement would also weaken our just stand on agitating against terrorist activities inside our country sponsored by other countries. Activities of spies like Commander Yadav of Indian Navy can now be covered up as a retaliation of the Mumbai attacks.
The links of Mian Sahib with religious extremist groups are well known. In 2013 elections, the Taliban did not allow PPP and 2 other political parties to even run their election campaign. Both Mian Nawaz Sharif and Imran Khan who were freely running their campaigns did not even care to condemn the Taliban for making the election campaign one sided.
