ISLAMABAD: Central Information Secretary Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Shireen Mazari, has said that the statement of Senator Farhatullah Babar declaring drone attacks “beneficial” has exposed Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) duplicity over drones.

As per issued press statement on Tuesday, Mazari said, “This statement has exposed the lies which PPP was feeding the people of Pakistan when their leadership criticized drones publicly.”

She said PPP’s support for anti-drone parliamentary resolutions and All Parties Conference (APC) resolutions are equally condemnable, while revelations in Wikileaks, books and articles in the West asserting that the PPP was fooling its people and supporting US drone attacks were all correct.

Mazari questioned here, “Why PPP felt the need for this duplicity over drones when they believed they were good for Pakistan?”

Drones have been and are a major source of multiplying terrorism and aggravating extremism and also the violation of international law, she added.

“Remarks of PPP Senator on drones have unveiled the duplicity policy of PPP which we suspected all along,” she concluded.
