Inviting martial law: PPP serves show-cause notice on Abidi
KARACHI: The Pakistan People’s Party has served a show-cause notice on former PPP leader and Senator Faisal Raza Abidi for voicing support to military rule in the country, ARY News reported.
Abidi had criticized the PPP in a speech on Tuesday and favoured imposition of martial law in the country. The notice was issued by provincial leadership and Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah for violating party discipline and adopting anti-democratic stance.
Talking exclusively to ARY News on Wednesday, Faisal Raza Abidi said the chief minister Sindh had a weak memory. “I have resigned from party membership a year ago, now what is the point issuing show-cause notice to me,” asked Abidi.
He announced starting a movement, opposing ‘so-called’ democracy and imposition of martial law in the country from March 23 in Sindh.
By favouring a dialogue with terrorists, he said, Sindh government was not only violating the constitution, but also disregarding the sacrifices of several people including former prime minister Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.
He said military should immediately take over to save the country from terrorists.
