ISLAMABAD: PPP chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has commended government’s coalition partner MQM for endorsing opposition’s demand for production order of former President Asif Ali Zardari.

“I must appreaciate MQM for speaking up for democratic constitutional right regardless of political differences. On the floor of the house yesterday they demanded the production order of President Zardari. Innocent until proven guilt is a right not a privilege,” Bilawal tweeted.

He said Asif Zardari has been arrested despite no conviction and year of cooperation with government’s investigation agencies.

He said that it was the first time in the history of Pakistan that four MNAs were arrested and not produced in the assembly.

“Despite 1yr of cooperation, no flight risk & no conviction President Zardari has been arrested so govt can rig budget. People of Nawabshah deprived of their right to be represented in budget process. First time in the history of Pakistan 4 members arrested & not produced for NA,” he added.

MQM’s Syed Ameen ul Haque signed a petition seeking production order for PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari.
