ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday, once again restated his demand for the issuance of MNAs Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir’s production orders.
Speaking on the floor of the National Assembly Bilawal said, “Production orders for Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir should be issued so that the House can be complete. It does not matter if you’re the government or the opposition, we are all members of the Parliament. I appeal to the speaker and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) members that it is important their production orders are issued.”
NA Speaker Asad Qaiser, in his response to Bilawal’s demand, said they are looking at the legal points, as soon as we have a decision we will inform.
“By not issuing their [Mohsin Dawar and Ali Wazir] production orders, you are giving the message that this House is not free. We do not want it to be written in history that no production orders were issued. We have even written to the human rights committee for the issuance of production orders. I don’t know whom the government is consulting with for the production order,” the PPP chairperson continued.
“The production orders of some members of the Parliament have still not been issued. It is the right of every member to attend the budget session,” Bilawal said while speaking to media outside the NA.
Bilawal lamented, “the PPP under protest is attending the budget session. What message is the government sending to the people of FATA? Every child stood against terrorism, peoples businesses were destroyed and lives were lost. Today these people can’t take part in the budget.”
“Those who come through the back door are always worried. Akhtar Mengal has serious issues and if those are not resolved he will not vote on the budget,” he further added.
Bilawal concluded, “the PPP had announced it will oppose the budget. The budget is the enemy of the people and we reject it. This budget is being passed through cheating. Neither Zia-ul-Haq not Pervez Mushraff did this.”
