KARACHI, May 7: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party has condemned Nawaz government for putting the name of two former Prime Ministers Yousuf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervez Ashraf on ECL and warned PML-N desist from taking up the victimization tools, which never worked on PPP Jiyalas in the past.

In a press statement issued here, PPP Chairman said that Nawaz Sharif and his team was well aware that police torture, lashes, imprisonments, and even gallows could not deter the Jiyalas during dictatorial and their handpicked puppet regimes. Yet they are trying to compel the rusted weapons of victimizations against the time-tested Jiyala leaders and workers of the PPP, he added.

He said that it was a matter of shame for the Nawaz government to put the former elected Prime Ministers on ECL while facilitating a tin-pot dictator to go abroad on fake and fabricated medical certificates.

Bilawal Bhutto said both these former Prime Minister flanked him during his speech in Kotli Kashmir when he had only reminded the PM of his own words about resignation demand. Nawaz Sharif is unsuccessfully trying to intimidate the PPP leaders and made it clear to the PML-N government that these Prime Ministers are Jiyalas and they would again stand with him during my another speech in Kashmir next week, he said.

PPP Chairman further said that the attempts to blackmail PPP away from their principled stance won’t succeed and the Party will stand united against all odds.
