Talking to journalists in the parliament house on Tuesday, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that whoever breaks and subverts the constitution has to be tried under Article 6 of the constitution.
Section one of the Article says: “Any person who abrogates or subverts or suspends or holds in abeyance, or attempts or conspires to abrogate or subvert or suspend or hold in abeyance, the constitution by use of force or show of force or by any other unconstitutional means shall be guilty of high treason.” “Whatever happened and was done from April 3 to 10 and afterwards by the PTI members amounts to subverting the constitution. This is our stance and we cannot take it lightly. We take pride in our constitution,” he remarked. Separately, Bilawal said that he does not have any final plan to visit the United States at the moment.
Speaking on the electricity crises, he said that the PPP had set up a series of power projects in the country under CPEC “but Imran Khan’s incapable government destroyed our power projects”. “Imran Khan’s stance on a foreign conspiracy to oust his government is false as he was removed by a democratic conspiracy. He was removed by constitutional means. He was removed through a conspiracy by the Bilawal House, not the United States,” the PPP chairman asserted while adding that now Imran Khan is attacking state institutions and is harming Pakistani democracy. “Imran should come back to the parliament and function as the opposition leader,” he added.
