KARACHI: Central leaders of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) have termed the witch-hunt against PPP and other opposition leadership as a vicious victimisation where the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) has become a tool placed in the hands of puppet rulers.
PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari chaired a meeting of party leaders, from the four provinces and Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) chapters at Bilawal House, Karachi on Tuesday.
The meeting was held to discuss the current political situation of the country and preparations regarding observance programmes for the 11th death anniversary of the late prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

Bilawal endorsed the views of party leaders the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has unleashed a victimisation campaign, brazenly targeting PPP and other opposition parties after a shameless dry-cleaning drive for inducting a puppets’ regime against the will of the nation.
The meeting noted the PTI government was drumming up cosmetic and hollow projects as its poor and directionless policies together with sky-rocketing inflation were leading the national economy to a disastrous nosedive.
Furthermore, the PPP leadership also expressed deep concern over the ruthless anti-encroachment drive by the PTI government where underprivileged segment of society was specifically targeted without chalking out any compensation plan.
“Instead of providing employment, the puppet regime was rendering thousands jobless,” the meeting observed, adding the government has snatched livelihood of hundreds of thousand Pakistanis.
“We have suffered at the hands of all dictators of past and their chosen henchmen,” said the PPP chairman, adding the party has never compromised on its ideology and struggle meant for emancipation of the masses from perpetual exploitation at the hands of undemocratic and pseudo-democratic forces.
The meeting also discussed in details about the preparations of programmes to observe 11th martyrdom day anniversary of late Benazir Bhutto at Garhi Khuda Bux on December 27.
