KARACHI: Leaders of the Pakistan Peoples Party have issued clarifications about the interview of Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari with BBC, in which he said that the the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) supermo should not have mentioned names of the military leadership.
Sindh Minister for Information Syed Nasir Shah said that Bilawal had said that Nawaz Sharif had the right to speak as he wished as much as the PPP chief had the right to speak.
Nasir Shah said that his party leader’s statement should be understood in the context in which he was speaking rather than taking things out of the context.
PPP Central Punjab President Qamar Zaman Kaira said that media was twisting statement of Bilawal. As far as Nawaz’s taking name of military officers is concerned, he said the PPP chairman said that he was a responsible man and he must have evidence about the personalities he was mentioning, but since he could not meet him because of coronavirus, so he did not take him into confidence about it.
“We have also taken names of military officers in the past but we had evidence against them. The PDM’s agenda had 26 points and the PPP stands by all of them,” he said adding that there was no denying that the establishment was embroiled into politics.
The PPP leader said that Bilawal had demanded formation of Truth and Reconciliation Commission to end this debate once and for all.
