KARACHI: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has announced to introduce an amendment to bring the judges under the purview of to NAB accountability, saying that a dual system cannot run in the country. Different laws for common man and sacred cows won’t work as it could not be acceptable that if there is a Prime Minister from Larkana then hang him and if the Prime Minister is from Zaman Park the courts will wait for whole day to offer him bail.
Addressing a Seminar organized by PPP Karachi Division in connection with the Golden Jubilee of the 1973 Constitution of Pakistan, the PPP Chairman said that Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto is the founder of the 1973 Constitution, for which we are proud of. This Constitution of 1973 gives every citizen to protect and guarantee their rights.
He further said that if Pakistan is a federal country, this Constitution gives us a federal system. Pakistan is an Islamic country, then our Constitution is an Islamic constitution, and Pakistan is a country of democracy then our constitution is a democratic constitution.
Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that since the Constitution of Pakistan was passed, constant attacks were mounted against it, because some forces don’t tolerate rights to the people. Its defacing at the hands of dictators General Zia and General Musharraf is still felt by the nation.
The PPP Chairman said that the tenure from 2008 to 2013 was a period of hope, as before that there was a lot of polarization in the country. During this period, the political parties came to the conclusion that as long as we continue to fight, the Constitution and democracy will always be in danger and the country will not progress. He further said that Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto had forgotten the political victimisations of her then opponents and pledged that we would work on Charter of Democracy (CoD).
Calling the progress made as a result of harmony among the political parties after the CoD, Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that we focussed on the people of Pakistan, we passed the 18th Amendment, Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) was initiated, Northern Areas made Gilgit –Baltistan and NWFP Province was renamed Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that the puppet was brought to power because it was not just a conspiracy against the system, but a conspiracy against the Constitution under the narrative that everything has gone to the provinces.
He said that Imran Khan has ruined every institution. Politics has been polarised to such an extent that we cannot talk to each other.
The PPP Chairman said that another law is being floated that if anyone speaks against the army or the judiciary, he will be punished.

He said that the BISP is a revolutionary project. He said that...
He said that whatever amendments other parties bring in the NAB law, but I will submit an amendment myself that if the NAB is to be maintained, it should also apply to the judiciary, whether judges are serving or retired. Corruption is everywhere and PPP would oppose the sacred cow laws.
