ISLAMABAD, January 03 : PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said his party will support only if parliamentary procedure is adopted for making amendments in army act.

He held that letter written by PML-N is not in his knowledge. During the meeting with PML-N held yesterday order had come from their leadership that unconditional support will be extended.
He went on to say that opposition leader extended unconditional support to government and opposition was not taken into confidence in this respect before it. “I think it should not have been done so. It is responsibility of opposition leader to keep opposition united and forge consensus among them, he added.
If legislation is enacted as per parliamentary rules and regulations then we will support, he announced.
He pointed out bill will first of all be forwarded to National Assembly (NA) standing committee on defence and later it will come under consideration in house.
