Opposition’s fire bouncers are continued on government over killing of four people in Sahiwal, as in National Assembly session opposition raised question over capability of Punjab government and demanded fair investigation in Sahiwal shootout.
Opposition leader Shehbaz Sharif on Monday (Jan 21) during his national assembly speech, said that opposition would not rest till the truth behind the Sahiwal police ‘encounter’ comes out, adding that the government must give answers to the people over the incident. “We don’t want to do politics over the sad incident unlike Prime Minister Imran Khan but the premier has to answer government’s position before the nation,” he said. “There are no appointments in Punjab without PM Imran’s approval.”
Former Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said that the Sahiwal incident showed that those responsible for ending terrorism in the country, themselves have become terrorists. “A parliamentary committee, instead of a JIT, should be made on the Sahiwal incident,” he said.
Shireen Mazari, the minister for human rights, said “Why was no parliamentary committee made on Naqeebullah case. Why was no punishment given to the people involved in Model Town killings when Asif was the defence minister,” she questioned.
Former prime minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf said “What sort of Madina-like state this is. For goodness sake don’t call it Madina state. Should a bouquet be presented to children whose parents were killed in broad daylight,” he said in his speech.
