Karachi : Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Wednesday said that he has been raising voice against proscribed organization since he joined politics. Addressing a news conference here, he said that Prime Minister Imran Khan does not take action against banned outfits but the opposition, adding that how would the government assure the opposition that action is being taken against the banned organisations. Bilawal said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) won the general elections with the help of banned organisations. Why a Joint Investigation Team (JIT) is not constituted against the proscribed organisations, Bilawal asked and demanded to implement National Action Plan (NAP) in letter and spirit.
