31 January, 2018
TAUNSA: Pakistan People’s Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari Tuesday questioned deposed prime minister Nawaz Sharif’s claim of being victimised. Speaking to the media, the former president asked how could the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader claim to be a victim while enjoying official security protocol. “With six cars ahead, six cars behind his (Nawaz) vehicle, how can he claim himself to be a victim. We were the ones who were victimised and taken in armoured vehicles,” Zardari said. The PPP leader also claimed that his party would be able to form a government in Punjab.
“Panama issue originated from outside, it wasn’t started by former Ehtasaab Commission chairman Saifur Rehman,” said Zardari while taking a jibe at the incumbent government.
The former president also expressed the hope that the general election, scheduled for later this year, would be held on time. Referring to Pakistan’s eastern neighbour, the former president said that there was aa big difference between the India of Nehru and Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s India. “I cant find secularism in Modi’s India,” he added. Earlier, Zardari while addressing a joint opposition protest rally to seek justice for the Model Town tragedy in Lahore had said that the only danger to the country was from Jati Umra – the residence of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif. “They do not care about Pakistan, they only care about Jati Umra,”.
