Bilawal slams authorities for using force against protesters


KARACHI, Dec. 25 (TNS): Young chairman of PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Monday lashed out Sindh authorities for using of force on teachers in Karachi for the third time in a month.

Primary, secondary and high school teachers faced the police’s wrath when they staged a protest in front of the Karachi Press Club (KPC) on Monday for permanent jobs and promotions and attempted to march towards Chief Minister House.

They were intercepted by the police who used water cannons and batons to subdue them.

“No police have the right to use force to quell protests unless force is used,” the PPP chief said. “Peaceful protest is every citizens democratic right.”

He added, “I understand Sindh police are extra independent these days but I expect CM Sindh & GOS to protect democratic norms.”
