PESHAWAR: Former President and Pakistan Peoples Party Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has said that the ruling party Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz will not be successful in making a government again in Punjab, adding that the PPP will not allow rigging in the next general elections.
He was addressing a gathering here on Sunday.
“They have a misapprehension that they will form a government again in Punjab by introducing new trains,” mocked the former president.
He said that this time his party workers would be sitting in front of the polling booths and would leave only after receiving results.
Would go to every corner of the country to campaign this time, he said.
The former president said that the PPP wanted to ensure FATA’s inclusion in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, adding that the party gave Pakhtuns their identity.
Zardari said that the NFC award was not a favour but a right of the Pakhtun nation.
“We dreamt of the CPEC for Balochistan and KP,” said the PPP co-chairman.
He also took aim at ruling party in KP, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, saying: “Immature people cannot see that KP is up in flames.”
Zardari is on a five-day visit to Peshawar during which he is scheduled to meet provincial members of the party, members of the parliament, district heads and address the FATA grand jirga.
He accused the federal government of benefitting Islamabad more saying that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has ‘deviated’ from provinces.
Economic condition of the country is not right and the government is relentlessly printing currency bills. The rulers of the country believe that ‘Mughal rule’ would continue, he said.
Zardari said that the political organisation would not get votes by erecting metro stations and introducing trains.
He vowed to run campaigns in every part of the country for General Elections 2018. -INP
