KARACHI, June 5: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party has strongly condemned the brutal treatment to protesting nursing professionals in Peshawar at the hands of KPK government and demanded immediate release of arrested nurses and acceptance of their genuine demands without any further delay.
In a press statement issued here, the PPP Chairman said nursing professionals are respected the world over for their service to humanity but the rulers in Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province broke all records of brutality against the nurses and exposed its ugly face to the nation as well as to the world.
He further said that Pakistan Peoples Party stands with the protesting nurses of Hayatabad Medical Complex and sees police torture and action against them as shameful. “We wont tolerate such ghastly action against nurses or any other segment of our society,” he pledged.
PPP Chairman said that instead of holding talks with the protesting nurses, the so-called “Naya-Pakistan” government resorted to applying state brutality and torture, which is highly condemnable and lays bare the hollowness falsehood of their political narrative.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari expressed solidarity with the Peshawar nurses and warned the KPK government to improve their working conditions and accept their legitimate demands before their protests is joined by general public.
