KARACHI, Aug 25: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has condemned the victimization of the PPP workers in Azad Jammu & Kashmir by the newly-inducted PML-N government where cases under Anti-Terrorism Act have been initiated against 47 innocent PPP workers including former Adviser to AJK PM Faisal Mumtaz Rathore and throwing 11 of them into jails.
“This is kind of intolerable victimization of the PPP workers and the Party will resist such draconian actions with full force,” PPP Chairman stated in a statement issued here today.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that former PPP government in AJK had established a Judicial Commission into an incident after which the shops and properties were attacked, vandalized and burnt in Haveli in July 2016. He pointed out the said Judicial Commission had completed 80% of its work but the PML-N government wound up it and launched fierce victimization of the PPP workers in the valley.
PPP Chairman asked PML-N government to desist from carrying out political revenge and victimization against his Party workers.
