LAHORE: Senior Pakistan Peoples Party leader Khursheed Shah has warned the government of agitation across the country if party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is arrested.

“One needs a lot of courage to arrest Bilawal. His arrest will be a dangerous game,” said the veteran PPP leader while addressing the media in Lahore.

“It is impossible to impose governor’s rule in Sindh since it is impermissible under the law and the Constitution,” said Shah.

PTI govt failing on its own: Khursheed Shah

“The law can be abolished and governor rule imposed through martial law,” he said, adding that it would threaten Pakistan’s integrity.

On resignation of Sindh Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah, he said Sindh needed no in-house changes and that cases had been made on assumptions.

He said it appeared as if attempts were being made to impose a civilian martial law. “Through suck politics, one party is being strengthened while the rest are being weakened,” said the PPP leader. “Those who are trying to finish political parties in such a manner cannot succeed.”

On fair and transparent elections, Khursheed said, “Imran Khan has not come to power through public mandate. He has been brought. Everyone knows how he has been brought to power.”

Khursheed blamed Imran Khan for creating crisis and uncertainty in the country. “The prime minister has not done a single thing apart from having politicians arrested. Filling jails with politicians will not turn out well for Pakistan,” he added.

He also said Imran wanted no one to ask him about his promises.

On the occasion, the PPP leader also called out the federal government for attempting to impose civilian martial law.
