Pakistan - This time PPP is being targeted

Sindh Information advisor Mola Bakhsh Chandio on Sunday said that the policy of ‘picking people up’ is not appropriate, adding that at first ‘one party’ was targeted and now it seems to be the Pakistan Peoples Party’s turn.
The provincial minister was addressing media in a press conference, where he made the statements in reference to the recent arrest of three close aides of former president Asif Ali Zardari.
He said that Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar was making threats since some time now he has acted upon it.
“We will not accept this kind of revenge,” said Chandio, adding that such kind of acts promote anarchy.
He also said that currently in Sindh, the duration of loadshedding is 18 hours and the situation of water supply is also dire.
“Mian Sahab (PM Nawaz Sharif) do not give life for Pakistan, instead spare its life,” he said.
Earlier, Opposition Leader in the National Assembly Syed Khursheed Shah demanded that the three close aides of former president Zardari, who were reportedly picked up earlier, be presented in the courts within the next 24 hours.
"If you want to arrest people for being Zardari’s friends, then you should arrest me too, I can also tell you a lot," he said while talking to media at his residence in the Ministers’ Enclave.
He said the ‘arrested’ people included Zardari’s manager Ghulam Qadir Marri and Nawab Leghari. 
'Group of thieves’ ruling PPP, says Talal Chaudhry
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) MNA Talal Chaudhry lambasted PPP leaders for their reactionary statements, saying that a group of thieves is ruling the PPP.
Speaking to Geo News, he alleged that the PPP of today came to power after selling the name of Bhutto. “They have not only snatched away the things which Bhutto promised to the people of Sindh but also turned the city of light into a garbage den,” he said. “Nowadays fake Bhuttos are ruling the party.”
Raising the political temperature further, he said that water is a provincial matter but it is Nawaz Sharif who is providing it to Karachi.
