Karachi, September 05, 2019 (PPI-OT): Sindh Minister for Information, Archives and Labour Saeed Ghani said that if trials of PPP leadership and ministers were shifted to Islamabad and Punjab on the grounds that PPP would influence the trial in Sindh then cases of Parvaiz Khatak, Mehmood Khan, Aleem Khan, Pervaiz Khatak , Asad Qaiser, Pervaiz Illahi and Aleema khan should also be shifted to Sindh province as they could also exert their influence in their respective provinces.
This, he said while addressing a press conference on Thursday. He said that this was first instance in the history of Pakistan that trials of Peoples Party leadership has been shifted to other province. He said that as per constitution and law, it is binding that the trials should be held where the cases were registered. Provincial minister said that the courts in Sindh should be closed if they had not any confidence in the judges who were appointed by the higher judiciary not by Sindh government.
Saeed Ghani said that NAB officials of Sindh should have been replaced if they were incompetent to conduct the trial of PPP leadership. He said that wrong message was being conveyed to people of Sindh while present situation of country required national unity and harmony.
He said that peoples party leadership was being targeted and victimized in fabricated cases to pressurize them to change their stance on the rights of people of Pakistan, strengthening of parliamentary system and democratic norms in the country. He said that PPP leaderships never compromise on rights of people of Pakistan and added that Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari and PPP chairman will not change their opinion on national issues.
He said that those who were making conspiracies to target PPP leadership as settled plan should learn from history of Pakistan Peoples Party. Oppressors will get tired while PPP leadership will bear all hardships with joyfulness.
