ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) senior leader Senator Aitzaz Ahsan on Wednesday said members of “Move on Pakistan” (MOP) party should be arrested and charged with treason.
The PPP leader asked Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali to register a case under Article 6 of the Constitution against the chief of Move on Pakistan party, who are pleading for imposing martial law and forming a government of technocrats.
He said that Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Lt Gen Asim Bajwa, in a tweet, had distanced Pakistan Army from such a campaign.
The posters, which were also displayed in Lahore, Karachi and Rawalpindi as well as in some cantonment areas, by “Move on Pakistan,” a largely-unknown political party, reportedly founded in 2013.
Speaking to reporters outside the Supreme Court premises, the PPP leader asked that why no action had been taken against those responsible for putting up those posters.
He said whenever the opposition talks about Panama leaks or corruption, it is portrayed as a threat to democracy.
It seems the posters are a ploy to put pressure on the opposition and to create an atmosphere of uncertainty, he said.
