Press conference by Dr. Nafisa Shah and Palwasha Khan
Islamabad, 24 July 2020: The central leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party held a press conference in Islamabad and said that 25th July 2018 the worst kind of political engineering had happened and pygmies were imposed in Pakistan.
Chairman PPP in his first speech in this assembly had called prime minister Imran Khan ‘selected’. The selected had come to power with a hundred day program but after seven hundred days, the selected have taken u-turn and nothing else. The presidency is issuing illegal ordinances and notifications. Osama Bin Laden is called a Shaheed and when PTI is asked questions in this regard Ehsanullah Ehsan threatens PPP leadership.
The press conference was held by Secretary Information PPP Dr. Nafisa Shah and Deputy Secretary Palwasha Khan. Nazir Dhoki was also present on the occasion.
The PPP leaders said that the wife of Justice Qazi Faez Isa is asked to present herself before FBR officials and on the other, Zulfi Bukhari says that he is sorry that he could not file his tax returns. How Zulfi Bukhari is signing contracts in Dubai, they asked. The government is introducing an ordinance to protect Kulbhushan Jadhav. The PPP leaders said that NAB is busy in political engineering and even the judiciary has mentioned political engineering in its verdict. NAB is arresting opposition politicians whereas the government members are free to roam about. Jahangir Tareen has fled the country and his name was not put on the ECL. The PTI had claimed a lot but is doing nothing to give any relief to the people. The prices of oil, sugar and flour have been increased and the tariffs of electricity and gas bills are increased. The government has left the agriculture of the country on the mercy of locust.
They said that PPP wants a new law for accountability with consensus in which there is no political victimization and accountability is done across the board. They said that Chairman PPP is trying to hold the APC but unfortunately Shahbaz Sharif’s health is deteriorating.
Palwasha Khan said that three main ministries have been handed over to imported people. These imported people are laying off poor people of Pakistan. Zulfi Bukhari is illegally signing contracts in Dubai. Who has authorized him to sign these contracts? The ministry of water has been given to an American citizen. The advisor for finance Abdul Hafeez Sheikh is a partner in a company “New Silk” which is an Indian company. The owner of Abraj Group is prime minister Imran Khan’s close friend and his financier. Palwasha asked to form a JIT on the issue of Raymond Davis so that the people know that who facilitated his escape. The NAB-Niazi nexus has been exposed. They demanded the release of the people in NAB’s custody.
