People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari has said that he had to think of future as those who had formulas like minus one were asking for help.
He said that talks could only be held after ousting the PTI government. The NAB was running the country, he said, adding that in his government, the national debt was $30 billion, which had now crossed $60 billion.
Zardari said that he was asked to make some formula to take the country out of crises. “I told them that their formulae have destroyed the country. First bid him (Imran Khan) farewell and then talk to me. After his departure, we will control the situation,” he added.
Addressing party workers in Nawabshah on Monday, Zardari predicted that the PPP would win the forthcoming polls, adding the future is of the PPP.
He termed the government a mixture (choon choon ka murabba), saying that even Einstein cannot solve the problems of Pakistan.
He said he had delegated powers to parliament because the PPP knew well how to address the issues of the country.
Zardari said the PPP had given jobs to the poor masses. He quoted former prime minister Benazir Bhutto as saying: “If providing job opportunities to the people is a crime, we would continue to commit this crime.”
The former president said that the PPP always took the country out of crisis. There was no flour and sugar in the Musharraf’s regime. They (PPP) came to power and made the country surplus in both the commodities, he added.
Later, Chaudhry Tariq Masood Arain gave the traditional cap and Ajrak to former president Asif Zardari.
The ceremony was attended by PPP Divisional President Zia-ul-Hassan Lanjar, PPP MPA Haji Ali Hassan Zardari, MNA Syed Ghulam Mustafa Shah, Sardar Abdul Sattar Keerio, Sardar Jam Tamachi Unar, PPP District President Ali Akbar Jamali, Noor Nawaz Zardari and a large number of PPP workers.
