The federal government under Prime Minister Imran Khan hasn’t decided so far if it is with the martyrs or assassins despite so many people being killed, said PPP co-chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
He visited Quetta on Tuesday to offer condolences to bereaved families. On April 12, a suicide bomber blew himself up in the Hazarganji fruit market, killing 20 people, including eight Hazaras. Quetta’s Hazaras protested the lack of security in a four-day sit-in.
“It is time the government decided if it is with the martyrs or the killers,” said Bilawal, while talking to media after offering his condolences. “The government can’t sit with two sides at one time.”
How long will the policy of duplicity be allowed to run in the country, he asked. I was called anti-Pakistan when I spoke against proscribed organziations, he remarked.
Bilawal underscored the need for the government to bring affected people, not outlawed outfits, into the national mainstream. The National Action Plan hasn’t been implemented to date, he pointed out.
