MIRPURKHAS: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari said on Friday that although he is not party founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto but he shares his ideals and his spirit.
The former president was addressing a rally celebrating the 90th birthday of former prime minister Bhutto with a rally in Mirpurkhas today.
Pakistan is currently in difficult times due to inefficient politicians as they failed to fulfill their purpose, he said.
Zardari lamented that Pakistan’s lack of foreign minister in the past reflected badly on its international affairs.
“They have appointed a foreign minister that speaks English in Punjabi,” mocked the former president.
Zardari also strictly criticised former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-N President Nawaz Sharif.
“Don’t send us indirect messages thinking we will be intimidated,” said the PPP co-chair in reference to Nawaz’s earlier statement about exposing behind the curtain scheming with evidence.
Zardari said that Nawaz should’nt speak of behind the scene secrets, as the ruling party itself is the biggest mystery.
“You (the PML-N) is in the government and behind the scene as well,” said Zardari, adding that hefinds it confounding that how come a person incapable of winning a Union Council elections gathers 100,000 votes in general elections.
While praising ZA Bhutto, the PPP co-chairperson said that the party founder breathed meaning and sensibility into the party.
Earlier during his address to the participants, PPP leader and Opposition leader in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah said that Pakistan needs those leaders who would live and die for its people.
“Our life and death is associated with the people of this nation,” said Shah.-Web Desk
