Islamabad, 16 September 2020: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the government has unconstitutionally carried out legislations today.
Addressing a press conference in opposition leader’s chamber in the National Assembly with the Opposition leader Shahbaz Sharif and other Parliamentary leaders of opposition parties in the National Assembly and Senate of Pakistan, Chairman Bilawal said that all the representatives of the people came today to the joint session of the Parliament to express their views on important matter which concern Pakistan. It was unfortunate that the government adopted an unconstitutional way to pass their bills.
Chairman PPP said that after court’s decision, an advisor cannot present bills in the Parliament. This was illegal and unconstitutional. He said that according to rules the Opposition leader can address the Parliament at any time like the leader of the House.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that earlier we had objected the legislation on FATF just to help the government. Now the bill the government has bulldozed today will facilitate arrest of any person without an arrest warrant. If this happens in Pakistan then there will be negative effect on the economy of the country. He said that the anti-democratic manner with which this government has bulldozed legislations today in the parliament was not seen even in the assemblies under dictators like General Zia ul Haq and General Musharraf.
