Former president and PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari called PTI chairperson Imran Khan a liar, saying his hatred is not for Imran Khan, but his mindset.

During an interview to a news channel, Asif Zardari said “Imran Khan has been lying since the beginning, though we do not hate him, but his mindset.”

Zardari also rebutted Imran Khan’s allegation of ousting him through a no-confidence motion with the help of the United States.

“We had been in contact with Khan’s allies for the last three years to remove him from power,” said Zardari, adding that he also held secret meetings with Shehbaz Sharif in connection with the no-trust motion against Imran Khan.

Talking about wooing Khan’s allies to vote against him in the no-trust motion, the former president went on to say, “I am a guarantor in all agreements made with allies and we will fulfil all of their legitimate demands.”

“I am also a guarantor with MQM-P, however, someone misguided the PML-Q, but we still want them to join us,” he said.

Responding to becoming a part of PM Shehbaz’s cabinet as PPP has the second-largest members in the NA of the coalition government, Zardari said Bilawal inclusion will be decided by the party’s Central Executive Committee (CEC).

The show host also showed some clips of Zardari’s interview in 2019 in which he claimed that the PTI-led government would not complete its term. That interview was reportedly not allowed to go on air.

The former president also revealed in that interview that a case was being prosecuted against Imran Khan in England in which a Pakistani businessman funded him. The case would be sent to the United States for trial. When its verdict would be announced, true Imran Khan would come to light, he added.

Zardari made fun of former prime minister claiming that Imran Khan is afraid of lizards.

The ex-president said Imran was detained for eight hours in 2007 during the lawyer’s movement and over there, it came to light that he was afraid of lizards.

“If Imran Khan will be put in jail, then it will be an enormous problem for this gora (white) sahab,” he added.
