Karachi: On Thursday, NAB arrested the former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi in LNG case near Lahore Toll Plaza.
Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has condemned the arrest of former Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
Selected accountabilit and selected arrests only expose our selected government. Arrests of opposition, censorship of media & selected govt. nothing ‘Naya’ about this Pakistan. It’s the same old Zia/Musharraf type dictatorial Pakistan. Such tactics will not deter the resistance.

Bakhtawar Bhutto also commented on this,
Another former democratically elected Prime Minister arrested. And apparently being critical of the Selected Gov is now treason. Welcome to Youthopia #NayaDictatorship.

Bilawal stated that this is a part of the witch-hunt of the “selected government against the elected representatives”.
He also demanded the release of the arrested former PM Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
According to him, the PTI government has failed to meet the problems of the lay man. It is trying to cover up their failure by diverting the attention of the public towards other political leaders.
However, he is of the view that whatever happens, the protest against the government would not come to its end.
He further declared the accountability as the “Selective Accountability” by the “Selected Government”. Selective accountability is not acceptable by any of us, he further mentioned.
