Karachi: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has stated that PPP believes in across the board accountability and alleged that the ongoing accountability process is unilateral.

About the arrest of Speaker Sindh Assembly Agha Siraj Durrani, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said arrests should not be selective but according to the rule of law.

He stared this while addressing a press conference in Karachi on Wednesday. He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan does not take action against banned outfits but the opposition, adding that how would the government assure the opposition that action is being taken against the banned organisations.

He said it is opposition’s task to hold accountability of the government and the PPP will continue its struggle for democracy. He alleged that PTI won the last held general elections with the help of banned organisations.

Why a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) is not constituted against the proscribed organisations, Bilawal asked and demanded to implement National Action Plan (NAP) in letter and spirit.

He said that National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) law is black law and it was also failure of the PPP government not to amend the black law.

Bilawal went on to say that the anti-graft watchdog shouldn’t be used for political engineering, adding that the anti-graft agency chairman should also hold his officials accountable.

The PPP chairman asked the purpose behind taking suo motu notice of fake account case during election campaign, adding that injustice is being done against him.

Regretting the recent arrest of Sindh Assembly Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani, the PPP leader said that the anti-graft body was a tool being used for political engineering. “According to the Charter of Democracy, the NAB should be abolished,” he said, quoting slain prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

On political victimisation, Bilawal emphasised that Article 10-A of the Constitution grants every citizen the right to a free trial.

The PPP leader said that shifting cases from Sindh to Rawalpindi is a violation of the jurisdiction. “The trial should be held where the crime took place,” he said, questioning as to why Rawalpindi is a choice when the Bhuttos are being tried.
