Everyone knows India is involved in anti-Pakistan activities in Afghanistan: Asif Zardari
01 March, 2017
HUB: Former president Asif Zardari on Tuesday said India is involved in sabotaging peace in Pakistan. "Everyone knows that India is involved in anti-Pakistan activities in Afghanistan, but the government has no realization of this issue. We do not understand foreign policy of Mian Sahib. Government which cannot appoint foreign minister for four years how can it would be successful to present and get accepted Pakistan's point of view before world powers.
He expressed these views while talking to reporters after condoling over the murder of Levies Risaldar Bashir Bizenjo.
"Mian Sahib must know India has established its consulates in our neighbour [Afghanistan] for what purpose and what India was doing there." He said the government needs to take all federating units into confidence regarding census.
Zardari said, "Reservations and apprehension of nationalist parties of Balochistan should be removed. Our party would emerge victorious during coming elections in all the provinces."
He was accorded a warm welcome by Chief of Bizenjo tribe Abdul Majeed Bizenjo at Bizenjo House. A luncheon was also hosted which was attended by Balochistan Home Minister Sarfaraz Bugti, PML-N Senator Shahbaz Durrani, Muhammad Ali Rind and Fateh Muhammad Buledi.
He said it is his non-political visit as he has old relation with the Bizenjo family and he has arrived Bizenjo House for condolence. Zardari said people need employment, education, health and basic facilities.
"We during our period gave package for removing sense of deprivation of people of Balochistan. After departure of our government Balochistan stands where we had left it. Those coming to power after us too not steps for welfare of people. Balochistan has scores of problems."
"Mian Sahib has a narrow thinking on all issues. By taking a tough decision on holding of PSL final in Lahore, he only wants a public show to demonstrate that there is peace in Lahore," Zardari said.
To a question, Zardari denied inclusion of PML-N's Irfanullah Marwat in the PPP, saying that the Karachi-based politician has good relations with PPP but he has not so far joined the party. Zardari said "Twitter brigade" is behind the propaganda about Marwat.
Speaking on the occasion, MPA Abdul Quddus Bizenjo said Balochistan has been custodian of historic traditions and as Zardari is also chief of a Baloch tribe his visit as a tribal chief is of great importance. He said Zardari would return from here with love of people. He said, "Our grandfather Adam Abdul Karim Bizenjo has been associated with PPP and our closeness with PPP is not hidden to anyone."
