ISLAMABAD: PPP central leader and former Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf has said in National Assembly (NA) “ sanctity of chadar and chardiwari of Sindh Assembly (SA) speaker Agha Siraj Durrani has been trampled.
“People of Sindh are voicing strong protest the way SA Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani has been arrested. Sanctity of chadar and chardiwari of SA speaker has been trampled; What law it is that the parliamentarians should be arrested this way. If NAB is not under the control of government then why NAB is being defended. When the incumbent government will be in opposition then it will not become known to them from where scandals are brought”, he said this while speaking in NA session here Thursday.
He said that all the assemblies are protesting as how any one can be allowed to trample sanctity of chadar and chardewari of SA speaker. If government has not done it then why treasury benches are protesting. If you have no control over NAB then why you protest.
He went on to say this incident is deplorable. It is objectionable. This has lowered the esteem of assembly. No one can be safe if this situation persists. What law it is that members of parliament should be meted out such treatment and speaker of assembly is debased.
The sentiments of people of Sindh have been hurt due to arrest of Agha Siraj Durrani, he said adding we have to give a good message from federation that what has been done with him is wrong.
