Sindh law minister denounces travel ban on Zardari, others

Karachi: Adviser to Chief Minister of Sindh on Law Murtaza Wahab on Sunday denounced travel ban on prominent politicians following the ongoing investigation in money laundering cases by the Joint Investigation Team (JIT), particularly against Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari. He was speaking to journalists during his visit to Layari area of Karachi. “Those who are talking about making a forward bloc in the Sindh Assembly should be reminded that their government has a lead of only four votes in the parliament,” he said. He termed the results of 2018 General Elections as false and ‘stolen’, and claimed that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)-led government could not resolve core issues of the general public in the first five months of its tenure, rather it has triggered ‘tsunami’ in the country. “How can you change chief minister of Sindh?” he asked, adding that inquiries were also being conducted against Prime Minister Imran Khan and KP’s chief minister, so they should have also been ousted from power. “PPP has already faced such cases in the past,” he said, adding that the party was not afraid of these tactics. He further lamented the federal government, and asserted that the PTI could not form government in Sindh through democratic norms.
