PPO to turn country into police state: PTI


Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Vice-Chairman Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday termed Protection of Pakistan Ordinance (PPO) black law, saying that it would turn the country into a police state.
Addressing a news conference at his residence, Qureshi said that the new ordinance was like imposition of a civilian martial law in the country.
He appealed to opposition parties and the Pakistan Bar Council (PBC) to oppose the bill and added that constitution cannot be negated for personal interests.
The PTI leader explained that suspects would be arrested without any justification due to the bill.
“Security forces can detain anybody sans arrest warrant and it will have no record,” he added
The PTI leader urged the Supreme Court to take a suo motu notice to defend the constitution.
