KARACHI, December 28: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has expressed anguish and sorrow over the death of 35 people after consuming poisonous liquor in Punjab’s Toba Tek Singh district.
PPP Chairman said that he was shocked to see reports that this poisonous liquor was sold by Punjab Police on the eve of Christmas.
He sympathized with those who lost their loved ones and demanded stern action against those involved in the making of this tragedy.
“These tragic deaths of 35 people have exposed the so-called “good governance” being propagated by PML-N government to create a superficial impression. Sharifs have held the people of Punjab hostage through a moneyed cartel and treating them as slaves,” the PPP Chairman said.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that only PPP and its government are always blessed with the “suo moto clouds” and judicial activism but Takht-e-Jati Umrao has somehow been denied these blessings. Doing away with the clearly visible “One Land, Two Laws” will be the greatest gift to pass on to the next generation by those who want to be sung post-retirement, he added.
