KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto said on Sunday that he condemns all the police encounters across Pakistan, adding that the trend is not the solution to anything.

The PPP chairman was addressing the inauguration ceremony for the campaign of party memberships in Karachi.

Bilawal said that SSP Malir Rao Anwar also has a right to transparent investigation.

He said that the overall law and security situation of Sindh has improved.

Bilawal said his party wants a peaceful and developed Pakistan, adding that they believe in politics of service.

He further said that the party will make a list of members through a website.

Bilawal said that the party workers will be able to lodge a complaint against the party leaders through the website.

The PPP chairman said that the politics of hatred should be ended.

Justice suffering in Pakistan, says Bilawal Bhutto

Earlier, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto criticised the state of the judicial system in the country and said justice is suffering.

In a tweet, he said that the judiciary needs reforms, giving an example of how the Law Reforms Commission headed by Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar has never met since 2015 while under the rules the committee has to meet four times a year.

Chief Justice Mian Saqib Nisar on Saturday while addressing a seminar said an honest leadership can change the fate of the people, adding that the country needed an honest leadership, education and a strong judicial system.

The chief justice said that the judiciary in the country is completely independent and the nation should be proud of it.

Commenting on contempt of court notices, he said that the Supreme Court seldom try people for contempt despite being criticised so much.
