No one is above the law: Sharjeel

KARACHI:

Sindh Minister for Information, Transport, and Mass Transit Sharjeel Inam Memon has emphasised that no one is above the law, and no one can be allowed to violate it.

The PPP leadership has consistently prioritised the supremacy of law and has consistently appeared before the courts.

While addressing a press conference at the Archives Complex in Clifton, he stated that every Pakistani citizen is subject to the law; no one is exempt from its provisions. While the arrest of anyone is regrettable, equality before the law remains a fundamental principle. He noted that the decision against Imran Khan reflects the same individual who once labeled all his political opponents as thieves and robbers.

“Our esteemed founding leader and beloved figure among the people, Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, was unjustly executed in a fabricated case. Numerous false charges were leveled against Benazir Bhutto, leading to her persecution,” he said. “Despite these challenges, the PPP has consistently advanced with a commitment to upholding the supremacy of law.”

He pointed out that during the tenure of the former prime minister, Asif Ali Zardari was arrested, and Faryal Talpur was transferred from the hospital to jail on the night of Eid. Memon stated that the Sindh government would ensure complete legal protection for citizens’ freedom of movement. However, it is emphasised that stringent measures would be taken against anyone attempting to take the law into their own hands.

In response to a question, he clarified that peaceful protests would be facilitated in accordance with the law, but those who promote disorder would face legal consequences.

He highlighted the competitive nature of elections, urging all parties to participate transparently.
