BADIN: Co-chairman of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari said on Wednesday he will not allow Nawaz Sharif win majority in Senate. “You have to resign,” he stressed.
The 61-year-old politician at the same time claimed to form PPP-led government in Punjab after next elections. He believes that he received good response in Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
Addressing a rally to welcome PML-N’s former Sindh President Ismail Rahu into the PPP, the PPP leader told that he would next go to Balochistan and ‘mend broken hearts’.
“Now, I will go to Balochistan as the broken heart people are calling me. If we don’t pay more attention to Balochistan, it will harm the country,” he said.
Zardari said he receives love wherever he goes in Pakistan, adding that people were deprived of basic facilities like food, clothes and accommodation.
He claimed Pakistan Muslim League (N) government never emphasises on rural areas saying, “Nawaz Sharif wants us not to make our own electricity.”
“Mian Sahab never thinks about rural population,” he said expressing shock and dismay over the condition of the downtrodden people in the country. “He has spend everything on his relatives,” he said. “Only I can feel the pain of the poor people.”
PPP leader warned Nawaz Sharif that he would not let him win majority in Senate.
He also criticised the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf and said Imran Khan cannot understand what the people of the nation desire.
While referring to the land, he pointed out the residents of Badin and told that this land belonged to them. He said he asked the Sindh Chief Minister to distribute land amongst the local inhabitants.
“We are receiving large support from Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa,” Zardari said adding that PPP would take complete control of the Senate from the ruling party before March 2018.
Referring to the landmark Panama verdict, he said judges have ruled that Mian Sahab (Prime Minister) will have to go.
“We’ll double the number of “Bibi cards” (Benazir Income Support Card) when we come into power,” he announced.
Welcoming Mohammad Ismail Rahu, who recently left PML-N to join PPP, Zardari said that his joining was a sign that his party would not only sweep elections in Sindh but would also win on a larger scale and dominate all other provinces as well.
Zardari hailed the services of Ismail Rahu’s father and peasant leader Fazil Rahu who was assassinated in 1987.
He said that Fazil Rahu was also imprisoned in Sukkur Jail with Benazir Bhutto, and had sent a seal on a block of ice to her. Benazir told him that they are testing her patience and she will succeed eventually.
“I am standing on the soil of Fazil Rahu,” he said. “We and Rahu go a long way back.” NNI
