Threatened to accept immediate polls or face martial law: Bilawal

Debate in NA over threat letter is illegal: Bilawal


ISLAMABAD: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari claimed that the “debate” in the National Assembly over the alleged “threat letter” is “illegal”.

Bilawal tweeted that the move was illegal because the debate shared at the April 3 no-confidence meeting “was not part of the agenda.”

“Clearly malafide 10:30am agenda is yet to start. Speaker ignores demands to implement a court order. Calling cabinet meeting at 9pm shows clear intent not to vote today. Collusion between PM and speaker is clear,” tweeted Bilawal.

Earlier, speaking in the assembly, Bilawal reminded the speaker that the voting on the no-confidence motion must be carried out. Holding the NA’s order of the day in his hands, Bilawal said: “You are not only committing contempt of the court but also violating the Constitution as you cannot allow debate on any other topic except for what is on the agenda today in line with the order of the Supreme Court.”
