ISLAMABAD: PPP chairperson Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Monday regretted the loss of lives in the recent clashes that took place in various cities across the country and asked, why it did not take other stakeholders on board in resolving a crisis of this nature.
Pakistan has been rocked by violent protests over the past couple of days as supporters of a proscribed organisation have held protests across the country, leading to clashes with police officers.
The clashes have left four police officers martyred and over 600 injured.
Offering his condolences over the martyrdom of law enforcement personnel in the recent clashes and the deaths of citizens, the PPP chairperson said these clashes reflected the government’s failure to resolve tensions peacefully.
Bilawal said the real war should be fought against the reasons which cause the law and order situation of a country to plummet.
The PPP leader held the government responsible, wondering why it did not take other stakeholders on board in resolving a crisis of this nature.
“Why did this selected government not implement the National Action Plan? Why does this selected government not present the challenges facing the country to the Parliament [for debate]?” he wondered.
