Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has introduced a secret ordinance to facilitate Indian spy Kulbhushan Jhadav.
Addressing a press conference in Sukkur, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said, “The PTI government presented a secret ordinance, about which neither the opposition was informed nor the parliament and the people were taken into confidence.”
“The PTI has introduced an ordinance to facilitate Indian spy Kulbhushan Jhadav. This ordinance is unconstitutional and illegal. Why is the government facilitating Indian spies?”
He said that even if there was a need to bring an ordinance, the government should have informed the opposition and the people. This is an extraordinary step of the government. If we had brought such an ordinance, the Defense Pakistan Council would have staged a sit-in in Islamabad.
He said that the gangsters of Lyari were less than Osama bin Laden, we have not seen Osama bin Laden’s JIT till today, Ehsanullah Ehsan was involved in APS tragedy but PTI government left him, the most dangerous gangsters in Karachi were not from Lyari but from Nine Zero, Bilawal added.
Earlier, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari shared a copy of the ordinance allegedly benefiting Kulbhushan Jhadav on Twitter and said, “What is this secret Kulbhushan Jadhav ordinance introduced by our selected govt without taking the country or parliament into confidence. Absolutely outrageous. We demand answers & accountability. Yet another reason why this PM must go.”

It may be recalled that two days ago, former chairman of the Senate Raza Rabbani and other members of the opposition had protested against the ordinance against the decision of the military court and demanded an explanation from the government.
The opposition in the Senate termed the ordinance as a facility for the arrested RAW spy Kulbhushan Jhadav and demanded an explanation from the government.
On July 8, Additional Attorney General Ahmed Irfan had said that Kulbhushan Jhadav, an agent of India’s intelligence agency RAW, who was arrested and convicted in Pakistan, had refused to file an appeal against his sentence. Instead, they have decided to wait for a response to their pending mercy petition.
