PPP responds to allegations levelled by Ali Zaidi
KARACHI: The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) on Tuesday responded to the allegations levelled by Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) leader Ali Zaidi regarding the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) report of infamous Lyari Gang War gangster Uzair Baloch.
Addressing a press conference in Karachi, Spokesperson of Sindh Government Murtaza Wahab asked that who was providing the documents to Ali Zaidi. He said legally a JIT was formed by the government.
Murtaza Wahab said that Ali Zaidi claimed that he held a JIT report with four signatures. He said such documents had been forged in the past as well to besmirch people. He said a JIT report had seven signatures, including one of head of the JIT.
“We made JIT report public with all the signatures,” he said adding that a government document contained signatures or stamps. On allegations on PPP leader Qadir Patel, the spokesperson said that Qadir Patel faced court trials in the cases.
On this occasion, Qadir Patel said the PTI did not like criticism. “You should not create difference between the federation and the provinces. 2016 was the year of JITs,” he said.
Federal Maritime Affairs Minister Syed Ali Haider Zaidi on Tuesday said that the Joint Investigation Report (JIT) of Lyari Gang War ringleader Uzair Baloch issued by the Sindh government was incomplete and it was missing names of six important Pakistan Peoples Party leaders.
“The JIT report issued by the Sindh government comprised of 35 pages only, while the original report had more pages in it,” Ali Zaidi said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad. He was flanked by Information Minister Shibli Faraz on this occasion.
The Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf leader said Abdul Qadir Patel tasked Uzair Baloch to kill Jaleel, brother of Razzq Commando, because he killed Abdul Qadir Patel’s coordinator.
