ISLAMABAD: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari thanked the opposition on Wednesday for supporting the request for Asif Ali Zardari’s production order.

Former president Asif Ali Zardari was arrested on June 10 by NAB. Zardari is the central suspect in the fictitious bank account case.

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and the party’s senior leadership has been urging Speaker Asad Qaiser to issue his production orders.

The PPP leadership wrote a letter to the speaker, urging him to issue Zardari’s production order. Bilawal thanked the opposition for supporting his request.

“Grateful to political parties across party lines, particularly government ally parties and independents, who supported President Zardari’s production order. We must stand across party lines against attempts to rig the budget & deprive elected members of their right to attend NA,” he tweeted.

In the letter to the speaker, the PPP leadership urged him to issue the production order as the speaker was the custodian of the house.

The letter stated that important discussions on budget and other issues were being held in the assembly. As per law, the speaker can issue production orders for an elected representative.
