KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leaders have condemned the issuance of arrest warrant of former president of Pakistan and PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari by National Accountability Bureau (NAB).

While addressing a presser on Thursday, senior leader of PPP Palwasha Khan said that nuclear assets of this country are not secure in hands of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

“Imran Khan has been installed over us through a conspiracy. Why Jahangir Tareen and Zulfi Bukhari have disappeared from scene all of a sudden? We will not let them run away, ” she said.

Condemning the issuance of arrest warrant against Zardari, she said that the former president is currently on bail. “The government is clearly confused and chairman NAB is being blackmailed, ” she added.

Palwasha Khan announced that PPP will hold a powerful rally and protest on October 18.

“Punjab police is harassing and arresting our workers. They are doing exactly what Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has done in Kashmir, ” she said.

Responding to a question related to Kashmir, she said that the matter is ‘worrisome’ and ‘out of our hands’.

Earlier on Thursday, the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has issued arrest warrants for former president of Pakistan and co-chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari over suspicious transaction of Rs 8 billion in fake accounts case.
