ISLAMABAD: Former President Pakistan and President Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians Asif Ali Zardari today condemned the killing of two PPP workers in Nakial, Kotli Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
Workers of PML-N opened fire on PPP activists while they were participating in a PPP’s convention in Nakial area of Kotli. As a result two PPP workers were killed and five others were injured.
The former president condemning the killing of PPP workers in strongest possible words said that it has become norm for PML-N to kill opposition which shows the dictatorial mindset of its leadership.
He said that several PML-N ministers had been delivering hate speeches against PPP for some time now during their Kashmir visits. Storming of PPP convention seems to be the result of these hate speeches, he said.
Zardari has asked for detail report from the AJK Government and instructed to arrest and bring the culprits to book as soon as possible. He said that the supreme sacrifices of PPP workers will not go waste.
The former president expressed his sympathy for the families of martyr PPP workers and asked PPP AJK leaders to visit the residences of martyrs and show solidarity with them. He also instructed them to provide best medical care to the injured.
He prayed for eternal peace for the departed souls and strength and fortitude to the bereaved families to bear this irreparable loss with equanimity.
