Sanghar July 6 (TNS): Former president and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday urged Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to show courage to face difficulties.
“Mian sahib, you claim to be a tiger and tiger is your symbol. Don scare, face difficulties with courage and fortitude. No one is conspiring against you,” Zardari said while addressing a public rally in Sanghar.
In the same breath, the PPP co-chairman lashed out at the rulers terming them sellers of iron and steel. “They are better at selling steel rather than running the country. They are a bunch of fools. They don’t know the importance of CPEC and relations with China, neither they know about the happenings around the world,” he said.
Zardari said that Benazir Bhutto was assassinated through an international conspiracy.
After her assassination, I realised the danger the country was facing and I raised the slogan of Pakistan Khapay, he said.
The former president, criticising PTI Imran Khan, said he needs to understand that there was a huge difference between cricket and running a country.
Addressing the same gathering, Leader of the Opposition Khursheed Shah demanded that the prime minister tells the nation who is conspiring against him.
“Tell Zardari sb who is conspiring against your government, or tell me or at least tell Maulana Fazal Rehman who is conspiring against your government and the parliament. It is a crime not to name the conspirators,” Shah said demanding the Supreme Court to take notice of the prime minister’s claim and order an inquiry into the incident.
