PESHAWAR: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday said that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif never knew how to govern, and still does not know.
“Mian Shahab (Nawaz Sharif) neither knew how to govern before, nor does he still know now,” said the former president while speaking to mediapersons in Peshawar.
He said that PPP had always done politics of the people, and there is a lot of work still to be done in Khyber Pakhthunkhwa.
He said the KP has abundant resources including oil and gas, and cheap electricity can be provided from here, but the bureaucrats are in deep slumber to reconsider it.
However, he expressed hope that a country is not a public limited company, and seeks ups and down including wars, droughts, and other disasters, but manages to rise up on its feet.
“We will make the country stand on its own feet,” he said adding that many works couldn’t be done during their tenure.
“Even the brass turns to gold when we touch it,” he said. “And then it stays gold as it is with the PPP.”
He said that he was the president when the Awami National Party (ANP) had formed their government in KP, but he never interferred with the provincial government.
