ISLAMABAD, May 26: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has condemned the crackdown on peasants and farmers in Islamabad and termed it as a dictatorial action by Nawaz Sharif government.
Announcing his support for the protest and demands of farmers, the PPP Chairman said peasantry has been destroyed economically by PML-N government, which has proved the worst enemy of agriculture, which is continuously registering minus growth during current government.
He said that shelling and baton-charge on innocent farmers are part of the Sharif brothers’ anti-farmers policy as they have been ignoring and even facilitating protests by banned organizations in the capital city.
“The brutal torture against the farmers in Islamabad has again exposed Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar as a remnant of dictatorships,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said farmers and growers always prospered during PPP governments but Nawaz Sharif snatched smiles on their faces. Farmers demanding Bardana in Islamabad have every right to exercise their democratic right to protest against injustices, he added.
PPP Chairman said that his Party would restore all the rights of farmers after coming into power and will continue to promote and stabilize agriculture sector.
