Threatening to hold a rally at D-Chowk to hinder parliamentarians from voting in the VONC is an outrage: Sherry Rehman
ISLAMABAD ( Web News )
Parliamentary Leader of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in Senate and Chairperson Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs Sherry Rehman has said that threatening to hold a rally at D-Chowk to hinder parliamentarians from voting in the VONC is an outrage.
In a statement issued on twitter on Monday Sherry Rehman said that the government claims to have a majority in the NA so why panic now? This is a testament to the triumph of the no-confidence motion but also Tabahi Sarkar’s resort to mob violence.
Sherry Rehman said that it is clear now that Niazi has lost his majority, but also all claims to being a democratic player that adheres to a minimum rule of law. Tehreek-e-Insaf has become Tehreek-e-Intishar in a blatant attempt to subvert the constitution to hang on to power.
Sherry Rehman said that even the National Assembly secretariat has told the Speaker that preventing any parliamentarian from casting their vote is unconstitutional. This desperation to hang on to office is a sad demonstration of the lengths PTI is willing to go in crossing all democratic red lines.
