Former President Zardari’s Absence Strains People’s Party

Infostani Sources- Pakistan People’s Party Co-Chairman and former President Asif Zardari disclosed that the Imran government proposed six ministries to forge an alliance with the PPP. While not opposing PTI as a whole, our objection is directed towards a specific individual. During an interview with a private TV channel, Asif Ali Zardari revealed that the Imran government sought PPP’s collaboration, excluding Zardari, who was abroad at the time. The proposal was to part ways with six ministries and join forces with PTI in the elections. Zardari emphasized that the decision to table a no-confidence motion against the Imran Khan government was the correct move.

Describing Imran Khan as detrimental to the country’s economy, the former president asserted that if Khan had remained, he would have manipulated the elections with military involvement, securing a government until 2028. Zardari suggested that Khan would have had to resort to extreme financial measures, like filling a truck with money for a kilogram of milk. Confident that the next election will take place on February 8, Zardari highlighted the proactive stance of his party. Referring to Bilawal Bhutto, he acknowledged his education and eloquence but stressed the importance of experience. Zardari dismissed the idea of sidelining the seasoned leadership, emphasizing that Bilawal, as the chairman of PPP, possesses the qualities needed to lead the party effectively.

He holds the authority to issue tickets and intends to provide the same ticket to Bilawal.  Also, He asserts that the new generation possesses its own perspectives, expressing, “Dad, you’re not aware of everything. He has the complete right to voice his opinions. There’s no tax on expression, and they won’t hinder Bilawal from making statements. If he gets upset and decides to stay at home, what can one do? This scenario echoes in every household, although it’s another matter that no one speaks up in front of Mian Sahib; everyone fears him.

The country incurred losses, with 2 billion worth of sugar stockpiled but not permitted, smuggling into Afghanistan occurred, and the import of edible oil, although banned, persisted. The Ministry of Commerce was under our control, yet the policy had to be determined by the cabinet. He mentions Parvez Elahi being in jail while the son remains outside, lacking the honor to return.

The former president emphasizes that it’s not obligatory for the League to lead; there are other parties and personalities that should be considered. Following this approach would be better for continuity, and they should be given a chance. Now, we will carve out our own path.

Former President Rejects Dismissal, Clarifies Vehicle Origins, and Stands Firm on Palestine-Israel Issue

The former president emphasizes that it’s not obligatory for the League to lead; there are other parties and personalities that should be considered. Following this approach would be better for continuity, and they should be given a chance. Now, we will carve out our own path. He rejected my dismissal. We have previously strengthened institutions and continue to bolster the Election Commission. Regarding the issue of Shahkhana and my two bomb-proof vehicles, I clarify that the UAE gave me one car, and Colonel Gaddafi gave me the other. I paid two and a half crores for both vehicles.

The cases against me persist. Imran Khan has not concluded his favorite cases, which have been lingering for 14 years, and he initiated new cases, not Nawaz Sharif. The former president asserted that he was the first politician to condemn and continues to condemn the escalation in the Palestine-Israel issue.

He emphasized the significance of Palestine, likening it to Kashmir as a vital part of the Muslim world. Wars and occupations, according to him, cannot bring peace to the region. The Palestinian people will never accept such conditions, and Israel, in its pursuit of economic stability, will not achieve its objectives. Former President Asif Zardari also acknowledged that the youth are passionate about their homeland but face employment challenges.

We aim to enhance business opportunities. If we attain power, the party will appoint the finance minister internally. I am proactive, unafraid of their displeasure, and derive strength from love. My weakness lies in land, and my expertise lies in business development. Regarding the election, I emphasize that I have never engaged in vindictive politics, and there were no political prisoners during my tenure. The People’s Party is poised to deliver a pleasant surprise in this election, as those around me place a great deal of trust in my leadership. Sindh Governor Kamran Tesori discussed various issues of Sindh in a meeting with Asif Ali Zardari, attended by Saleem Mandviwala, Malik Shah Gur Cage, and Sir Faraz Domki Vidygram.
