In a statement issued on Thursday, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) leadership alleged that the PTI-led federal government is planning an attack on Sindh House in Islamabad.
As part of the no-trust motion, the PPP MNAs including Abdul Qadir Patel, Agha Rafi, Javed Shah Jillani, Qadir Mandokhel, and others are staying at Sindh House for security reasons, according to a joint statement made here on Thursday.
“MNAs demanded that the Sindh government provide them with accommodations in Sindh House, citing security concerns,” according to the statement.
The message went on to say that if anyone is attacked, the administration of Prime Minister Imran Khan will be held accountable.
Meanwhile, Faisal Karim Kundi, Central Deputy Information Secretary for the PPP, stated on Thursday that MNAs from the PML-N, JUI-F, and PPP were staying at Sindh House for security purposes.
Members of parliament are residing at Sindh House, as you are aware.” Every member has the right to stay there. These people are from the opposition,” claimed Faisal Karim Kundi, the leader of the Pakistan People’s Party.
After Foreign Minister and key PTI leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that several PTI MNAs were being held at Sindh House in Islamabad and that a strategy to retrieve them will be finalized today by Prime Minister Imran Khan, the PPP leader responded with his own statement.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi stated that a meeting would be conducted by Prime Minister Imran Khan today, during which options for regaining the PTI MNAs would be discussed.
Mr. Kundi stated that “MNAs from the PTI and other political parties are being detained there,” and that “Faisal Karim Kundi of the PPP and Shazia Marri of the PPP have admitted horse-trading, and now the ECP’s action against it would emphasize whether it is biassed or not.”
It has been revealed that the opposition parties are using Islamabad’s Sindh House to conceal government members of parliament. This is a disturbing disclosure.
The opposition parties, according to well-informed sources, have placed members of the treasury benches in safe custody at Sindh House, Farm House, and Parliament Lodges ahead of the vote on the no-trust move against PM Imran Khan.
The Pakistan Peoples’ Party has deployed additional contingents of Sindh police to Islamabad’s Sindh House in order to ensure the safety of its members.
