Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Friday termed the accountability system as a joke, saying the Raiwind’s prime minister had been allowed to fly abroad despite proven guilty while the president from Nawab Shah remained in jail for three years from just for blame, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, the PPP chairman said that this was not accountability but it is political engineering and political revenge.
Bilawal said Asif Ali Zardari stayed in Pakistan despite his children telling him to go abroad and seek treatment.
"I want to ask the prime minister what sort of accountability is going on in the country?" he asked, adding that if the premier's friends are being alleged of a crime, no action is taken against them.
He said the leader of the opposition from Punjab had been granted bail while the opposition leader from Sindh was in jail.
He said this kind of accountability was a mockery of the Constitution.
“If the Opposition leader is from Lahore, he is awarded bail, and if the Opposition leader hails from Sukkur, he is denied the right and treated like a ping-pong ball, sent back and forth from NAB courts to the Supreme Court."
The PPP chairman claimed the authorities were repeatedly blackmailing Shah's children and his wife.
Pointing about PM Imran Khan's statement, Bilawal said: “We are not going to request anyone to topple the federal government. The PPP will wait for the general elections if the opposition parties do not have the courage to overthrow the PTI government.”
The PPP chairman said his party would not back down as it believed in the power of the people and parliament.
“Why are you begging from the Arab countries and the IMF?" asked the PPP chairman, dismissing the government's claims that Pakistan was progressing economically.
Bilawal claimed whether it was Minister for Finance Shaukat Tarin or any other minister, the government was now coming to the terms that the PPP's stance was correct.
He went on to say that despite accusations against the prime minister and his sister, no action is taken against them either. However, he said, if the sister of a former president from Nawabshah was blamed for something, then she was dragged to jail from her hospital bed.
