Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party has strongly condemned killings of PPP candidates in Okara at the hands of terrorists and demanded their immediate arrest without any delay.
“It appears that same tactics and strategy are being used against PPP in Local government elections in Punjab which were used against the Party during general elections 2013,” he stated and stressing that use of terroristic tools to keep away the PPP from campaigning should also come under the PPO provisions.
He said that space for PPP is being squeezed in Punjab through use of terrorist activities under a planned strategy. It seems that new tools are being set to work to condense the PPP’s politics following the failure of undemocratic forces’ other options to downsize the Party.
He said that both the Federal and Punjab governments cannot be exonerated from these gory killings of PPP workers and asked them to treat the incident a terrorist attack which requires same vigor by the law enforcing agencies to catch the killers like similar incidents.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari paid tributes to the martyred PPP workers including candidate for Chairman UC 111 Qadirabad in Okara Shaheed Alsam Channa and two others and condoled with the bereaved families.
