LAHORE – Central Information Secretary PPP-P and the member of the National Assembly Shazia Atta Marri on Wednesday termed the PECA, a marvel of modern history in which there is no definition of crime.
While talking to the reporters at party’s Model Town Secretariat here, Shazia Marri said that this black law was unconstitutional and against freedom of expression. General Secretary PPP central Punjab Syed Hassan Murtaza, Secretary Information Shehzad Saeed Cheema, Asif Raza Baig and Ahsan Rizvi was also present on the occasion. Marri said that PPP’s struggle against PECA act was a war to defend the constitution, law, and democracy.
She said that Prime Minister Imran Khan doesn’t believe in supremacy of the Parliament that’s why he was running govt through ordinances. She said selected Imran Khan should resign and accept the decision of the people of Pakistan who don’t want to see him in government for not a single day.
She said inflation and extremism had reached at the highest level in the country adding that the people of Pakistan will come out on the call of Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari against this incompetent government. She also said that due to the wrong Afghan policy of Imran Khan country’s armed forces were under attack.
Replying to a question, she said that PPP’s long march was not a rally on GT Road as it would be a people’s march that will pass through all the major cities.
Marri further said that Pakistan’s position had worsened in the latest corruption perception index and its rank had fallen 16 places and reached to 140 out of 180 countries due to bad policies of most corrupt government of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf.
Slamming the PTI led government, she said that Prime Minister Imran Khan did nothing for people of the country but he has only harmed and destroyed the country’s economy by doing massive corruption during his four years of rule. The PPP leader said that incompetent PTI’s government had only been looting billions of rupees from the nation by delaying the decision of purchase of LNG while more taxes had been imposed on people.
Shazia Marri said that Imran Khan took record foreign loans, and consequently every Pakistani today had about Rs.0.2 million loan. She claimed that Imran Khan was the real incompetent and incapable Prime Minister of the country.
Criticising the Punjab Chief Minister without naming him, Marri called him ‘Puppet’. She said that he was the most incompetent chief minister in the history of Punjab.
Responding to a question regarding PTI and GDA long march in Sindh, she said that GDA, which claimed that they were the real representatives of Sindh, never raised voice against inflation, power and gas shortage in Sindh.
General Secretary PPP Central Punjab Syed Hassan Murtaza said that days of the PTI government are numbered and the PTI government will end before the reaching of Peoples March in Islamabad.
