Pakistan People’s Party Patron-in-Chief Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has taken a strong exception to the comments of Senator Faisal Raza Abidi against democracy and his demands of martial law.
The PPP chairman has ordered that a show-cause notice be issued to Abidi forthwith to seek the latter’s explanation.
It may be recalled that Abidi had stated at a press conference Tuesday that democracy had failed in the country and martial law should be implemented.
Senator Abidi was also summoned to Karachi by the PPP chief. Bilawal said his statement was a violation of founding principles of the party as the PPP had always struggled for the restoration and strengthening of democracy and sacrificed lives of its leaders Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and thousands of Jiyalas and workers.
“Such irresponsible and anti-democracy comments from anyone elected on PPP ticket will never be tolerated under any circumstances,” he added.
