Zardari dares Musharraf to come back, face trial
KAMALIA: Former president Asif Ali Zardari on Friday said former Army chief and president general (retd) Pervez Musharraf should come back to Pakistan and appear before the court if he was such a dauntless man (as he pretends to be), ARY News reported.
“Unfortunately, we are alleged of crimes after we accuse somebody of involvement in a felony,” he said, while talking to media in Kamalia, pointing towards Musharraf’s serious allegations on him.
Musharraf in a video statement accused Zardari of involvement in murders of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and her brother Murtaza Bhutto.
The former Army chief has been declared absconder by the anti-terrorism court trying him in BB’s murder case after he did not appear despite several summons were issued. He went to London on medical grounds.
Zardari said if he had back pain then how come he was found dancing in a video that went viral on social media.
Ex-president lashes out at govt for weak foreign policy
The former president lashed out at the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) government for having weak foreign policy and weakening Pakistan’s stance at international level.
He said for the last four years we did not have a foreign minister and what can we expect when they had appointed Khawaj Asif on the post now.
He said the PML-N had links with the Indian lobby. They gave birth to Indian business mindset in Pakistan, he said.
“We want to make our economy grow by collaborating with China, while the PML-N wants to collaborate with India for economic growth,” said the former president who also claims to have laid foundation for the China Pakistan Economic Corridor. He also said solution to every problem was economical development.
The Pakistan Peoples Party leader said the ruling party leaders and their friends were doing business across the border, hence they had adopted the thinking of their Indian counterparts.
He said the PML-N weakened the stance of Pakistan in the world and whatever the challenges the country faced at international level were because of their ineligibility.
To a query, he said, “In Sha Allah! Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan will become a cricket coach.”
