‘Selected’ PM doesn’t understand the concept of human rights: Bilawal fires back

In the wake of PM Imran Khan’s concern over lawmakers stressing over their names added to the Exit Control List,  Bilawal Bhutto also took to fire back.

Citing the prime minister’s tweet, the Pakistan People’s Party chairman wrote: “Obviously selected PM doesn’t understand the concept of human rights or freedom of movement,”

“Funny it’s only the opposition members on ECL, government members are busy travelling. Including PM who despite promising not to travel for 1st 6months has made more than 7 trips so far!

Many politicians were fumed after the prime minister released a tweet asking the lawmakers why are they scared of being placed on the Exit Control List.

“Why are some of our lawmakers so scared of the ECL? Why are they so keen to go abroad? There is so much work to be done by politicians in & for Pak – the land they claim to love but some cannot wait to take frequent trips abroad & lawmakers have iqamas or residencies abroad,” the prime minister wrote.

Briefing a response to media, Sindh CM Syed Murad Ali Shah on Thursday stated that he isn’t bothered with his name placed in the ECL.

The Federal Cabinet twice deferred the decision on removing the names Bilawal Bhutto and Murad Ali Shah despite the instructions of Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar during case proceedings and said that the government would wait for the SC’s written order in this regard.

Last month, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government placed names of 172 suspects, including Bilawal and CM Shah, on the ECL following a JIT report in the ongoing money laundering probe.
