‘President Zardari Was Arrested So Govt Could Rig Budget’

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto, amid his efforts of withholding the approval of federal budget 2019-20, has claimed that his father and former president Asif Zardari was nabbed so that centre can “rig the budget”.

Taking to Twitter, PPP chairman reflected on current political scenario involving the issuance of production orders for numerous under-arrest politicians including Asif Zardari.

Bilawal tweeted: “Despite 1yr of cooperation, no flight risk & no conviction President Zardari has been arrested so govt can rig budget. People of Nawabshah deprived of their right to be represented in budget process. First time in the history of Pakistan 4 members arrested & not produced for NA.”

“I must appreciate MQM for speaking up for democratic constitutional right regardless of political differences. On the floor of the house yesterday they demanded the production order of President Zardari. Innocent until proven guilty is a right, not a privilege”, Bilawal added.
