LAHORE: Punjab PPP President Qamar Zaman Kaira regrets that former Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan has in a tweet threatened Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Speaking at a press conference here on Wednesday, he said this is the same person who had been at the forefront in attacks on the Pakistan Army and GHQ and attacks on Pakistani integrity. He was arrested but mysteriously escaped.

The Taliban in their dialogue with the USA also demanded release of Ehsanullah Ehsan. He threatened Bilawal Bhutto and admitted [in the tweet] that they had martyred Benazir Bhutto.

Accompanied by Chaudhry Manzoor, Aslam Gill and Malik Usman, Mr Kaira said that the problem of people like Ehsanullah Ehsan with the PPP is the thinking of the latter, which believed in giving right to live to all sects and communities.
