PTI double standard is a sign of corruption

Islamabad, 15 August 2017: Pakistan Peoples Party leader Saeed Ghani has said that Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf is on one hand advocating National Accountability Bureau for Sindh and on the other hand has clipped NAB’s wings in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

Saeed Ghani said that Imran Khan is protecting his KP corrupt government despite the fact that PTI members KP Assembly are leveling allegation of corruption against KP Chief Minister and his cabinet.
Jamaat-e-Islami is also hands in gloves with PTI in corruption in KP, Saeed Ghani said.

Saeed Ghani said that provinces have powers after 18th amendment and an accountability bill has been passed by elected Sindh Assembly. No one will be able to escape accountability through this bill. The PTI and JI coalition in KP is an expression of corruption, Saeed Ghani
concluded.

Jamaat-e-Islami should be put on trial for corruption

Islamabad, 14 August 2017: Pakistan Peoples Party’s Senator Ajiz Dhamra has said that it is ironic that Jamaat-e-Islami’s Sirajul Haq is also taking about accountability of former President Asif Ali Zardari because JI had not only opposed the creation of Pakistan but also had called Quaid-e-Azam, Kafir-e-Azam.

Senator Ajiz Dhamra said that JI has always been opposed to democratic parties and has sided with dictators. The ills Genaral Zia introduced
in society was supported by JI. It was proved in Asghar Khan case that
JI took money from agencies to rig the election against PPP. JI also validated LFO of General Musharraf. Nation knows very well that JI did spread corruption in the name of Jihad in the country.

Senator Dhamra said that Asif Ali Zardari was imprisoned for over 11 years but not a single allegation against him was proved in court of law. Judges of superior courts had to be dismissed after audio tape scandal. Now the very same people are being exposed who had wrongly initiated cases against Asif Ali Zardari and their corruption is out in the open. He said that PPP has always presented itself for accountability but it has always been victimized, Senator Dhamra concluded.

Zardari felicitates nation on completing 70 years of independent existence

Calls for a democratic, progressive and liberal Pakistan

Expresses concern over resurrection of banned organizations

Islamabad August 13, 2017: Felicitating the nation on completing 70 years of independence former President Asif Ali Zardari today asked the people to re-dedicate themselves to the twin ideals of democracy and people’s welfare for which Pakistan was created.

Amid celebrations today we should not be unmindful of the threats to the basic values on which our nationhood was founded, the former President said.

“Let us also on this day reiterate our total rejection of the attempts by some to turn Pakistan into a theocratic state by proclaiming loudly and clearly that Pakistan was never meant to be nor will be allowed to degenerate into a theocratic state”.

Welfare of the people must always be upper most in our minds, he said adding also “the security of the country will be enhanced, not undermined if the state focused on welfare of the people”.

On this occasion we pay homage to the countless people who sacrificed their lives and endured hardships to make the dream of Pakistan come true. There is a little serpent of doubt that bites the soul; banned militant and extremist organizations have been allowed to resurrect in total disregard of the law and the National Action Plan, he said.

Our thoughts also go out to those who have laid down their lives and suffered grievously in fighting militancy and for the cause of democracy and rule of law. They all are our national heroes and
heroines.

The enemy struck again on the eve of Independence Day in Quetta resulting in the martyrdom of our valiant soldiers and civilians. We pay homage to our martyrs by reiterating the pledge to fight the coward enemy to the finish.

Let us on this occasion also reiterate our commitment to make Pakistan a truly modern, democratic, progressive and liberal country in the sense where freedom and opportunity are its defining characteristics, he said.

Bilawal Bhutto felicitates nation on 70th Independence Day

KARACHI, August 13: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has extended greetings to entire nation on 70thIndependence Day and urged that every Pakistani has to play his or her role create a great egalitarian role-model Muslim country as per the vision of our founding fathers.

In his message on the eve of Independence Day, the PPP Chairman said that 70 years age was enough for achieving maturity as a nation but dictatorships and their political prodigies have marred the level of our progress and achievements. “Democracies have been only small intervals in our history while most of the time the country had been under dictatorial or unconstitutional rules where masses were subjected to ruthless physical and economic atrocities keeping them under perpetual subjugation,” he pointed out.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that people of Pakistan had been deprived of testing the fruits of freedom and independence. Enemies of the ideology of Pakistan let lose terror, heroine and Kalashnikov culture against the people to crush their dreams, he added.

Being the true torchbearer of the ideology of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, the PPP, he said, has suffered heavy price in the form of sacrifices of its leadership, workers and the supporters. But the struggle for the democratic and basic rights of Pakistanis won’t subdue, he vowed.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari paid homage to the generation and its leaders which fought for independence and eventually achieved freedom through innumerable sacrifices of lives, properties and dignity. Today, we remember the heroes of independence movement and salute them for carving out a separate country for their next generations to thrive as a vibrant, progressive and strong nation, he added.

PPP Chairman said that we cannot forget more than 50,000 martyrs who laid down their lives in nation’s fight against terrorism, which was targeting common people, law enforcing agencies, students, women, and youth. “Right from schools to hospitals, garrisons to mosques, government to private installations, NGOs to political parties; the terrorists are targeting everything, which strengthen Pakistan,” he added.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari called upon all the citizens of Pakistan to stand up against extremism, terrorism and their facilitators to safeguard the freedom and independence. “Pakistan has a great potential to lead the third world and Muslim Ummah into peace and prosperity. We all need to explore that potential,” he added.

He again felicitated the people of Pakistan on 70th Independence Day and promised them that PPP would do all it can to revive the Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam.
