Islamabad: Chairman Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has taken notice of withdrawal of security to former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani by the caretaker government.

PPP Chairman declared it as a criminal act and asked the government to justify their act. Is the government unaware that his family had been the target of terrorists? he questioned.

Bilawal pointed out that Yousaf Raza's son, Ali Haider Gilani and Shahbaz Taseer were taken hostage due to such criminal negligence in the past adding that withdrawal of official security was tantamount to give in writing that government would be held responsible if anything happens to him or his family.

He further said that people should know that who is behind such a decision? Whether such steps are being taken on the directions of the incoming rulers who had been calling terrorists as their brothers?

By keeping in mind the sacrifices of Shaheed Haroon Bilour, Shaheed Siraj Raisani and hundreds of their companions, the government should have been more concerned but its policies appear in opposite direction, he stated.

Bilawal demanded that security of Yousuf Raza Gilani and entire political leadership of the country should be ensured without any delay.
