Khursheed Shah warns against Bilawal’s arrest


ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leader Khursheed Shah on Sunday warned the government against arrest of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

“He [Imran Khan] has done nothing except arrest politicians. He is being asked to do things which no other politician would do,” Shah said while talking to reporters in the federal capital.

“It is not possible to arrest him but nothing certain can be said about this government,” he answered to a question regarding a possible arrest of the party chairman.

While talking about the imposition of governor rule in Sindh, he said that “there is no need for in-house change in Sindh because the cases have been made on the basis of assumptions and it is not possible to impose governor’s rule in the province. Governor rule can only be imposed through martial law”.

Shah said it will be damaging to Pakistan if the governor rule is enforced in the province. He emphasised the security risks to the country if the constitution is altered.

“It feels like the country is moving towards the imposition of civilian martial law. The way politics is being done nowadays it seems like one party is being strengthened while others are being weakened,” he said.

“Imran Khan is trying to hide his incompetence through frivolous activities. He [Imran] does not want anyone to question him about the promises he made.”

The former leader of the opposition in the National Assembly further said that the premier did not assume office because of public mandate but was installed into power.
