PESHAWAR: Former President Asif Ali Zardari on Tuesday took a swipe at the PTI-led government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, saying he has seen no ‘change’ during his 5-day visit to Peshawar.
He made the observation during a visit to the residence of veteran ANP leader Ghulam Ahmed Bilour in Peshawar. “I have long association with KPK and Peshawar. Ghulam Ahmed Bilour sahab has been a friend of my father,” Zardari said on his first visit to Peshwar ever since the martyrdom of Benazir Bhutto in a bomb and gun attack in December 2007.
“I have learned a lot about politics and current affairs from Bilour sahab. I have been encouraged by the warm reception I got from my Pashtun brothers,” he said.
After visiting MPA of Awami National Party (ANP), Zardari convened meetings with parents of the martyrs of Army Public School (APS) attack in December 2014. This is the third big gathering convened by Zardari in the metropolis of KP in the past three days.
