ISLAMABAD, September 1 (WNP): Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Leader and Sindh Provincial Minister for Information and Labor Saeed Ghani Sunday said it has never occurred in the history that a case of a particular jurisdiction Sindh is being tried in another province and the accused is also kept under custody in another province.
He was addressing a press conference here with Nazir Dhoki at Sindh House this afternoon.
Sindh Information Minister Saeed Ghani said if PPP leaders’ cases are being tried in another province then why not; the PTI leaders from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa – Aleema Khan, Jahangir Tareen, Asad Qaisar, Zulfi Bukhari and Punjab Speaker Pervaiz Ilahi’s cases should be tried in Sindh and they all should be incarcerated there.
He said the PPP leaders are being arrested only on charges which have neither been investigated yet nor proved but the PTI members of federal, Punjab and KP cabinets have not been arrested or tried despite charges of mega corruption.
President Zardari and Faryal Talpur are being treated worse than Indian spy Kulbhushan Jadhav, Indian pilot Abhi Nandan and former spokesman of TTP Ihsanullah Ihsan, he accused the government.
He said Faryal Talpur is not allowed to attend Sindh Assembly session by the Punjab authorities despite her production order was issued.
This is the way federation is treating representatives of Sindh, he said. He said Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was also tried in Punjab. President Asif Ali Zardari was exonerated in all cases and had to suffer nearly twelve years in jail for his undone crimes.
He said not a single accusation against him was proved in any court of law.
He said cases against Zardari and Talpur are pertaining to Sindh but they are being tried and kept in jail in Punjab. The decision to send this case to Punjab is against the law and the Constitution, Saeed Ghani said.
He said it is a joke when PTI says that PPP is not serious on Kashmir issue. “No one can match the stand on Kashmir by PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. PTI has nothing to show except false promises and shattered dreams of people of Pakistan.”
Saeed Ghani said the PPP won record seats in 2018 elections in Sindh and recently defeated ‘Bhan Mati Ka tola’ in Gothki by-election.
Nazir Dhoki said the day PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari went to Muzaffarabad to offer Eid prayers with his Kashmiri brethren, the very same day Faryal Talpur was shifted from hospital bed to prison at midnight. Is this not a victimization of political opponent? He asked.
