No compromise on democratic, human, economic rights: Bilawal Bhutto
ISLAMABAD: PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called for the resignation of National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiserand his deputy Qasim Suri for refusing to allow opposition members to speak.
“Three of the government members got the chance to speak but I was denied to speak in the house,” Bilawal Bhutto said while addressing a press conference on Monday.
“We have never seen restrictions on media in a democracy but its happening in Naya Pakistan.”
“This government wants selected media, selected opposition and selected judiciary,” Bilawal Bhutto told a press conference.
He demanded that Speaker and Deputy Speaker of National Assembly resign from their posts over their deplorable behavior.
The government is putting restrictions on freedom of expression and speech, he said, adding that children of BB Shaheed will never be scared of arrests and raids.
“What is the difference of Zia, Musharraf and Ayub and Naya Pakistan?” he questioned.
Bilawal was of the view that judiciary was being attacked under a conspiracy.
The PPP chief said that he would not change his stance on human rights and freedom of speech.
“You can do whatever you want. We will never make any compromise on human rights,” he added.
To a question, he said that the government should complete its term.
