Zardari urges oppositon parties to unite against PTI government
ISLAMABAD: Terming the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government ‘incompetent’, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday urged the political parties to unite against the ruling party’s policies, ARY News reported.
Addressing a press conference in the federal capital, Asif Ali Zardari said that the incompetent PTI leadership cannot run the country and asked the political parties to bring resolution in order to correct the direction of the country.
“Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government’s incompetence would not remain hidden for very long so all parties must come together to pass a resolution that the PTI-led government is unable to run the affairs of the country in a befitting manner,” said Zardari.
About PPP’s five year tenure, the former president said that he believes in the supremacy of the parliament and handed over all the powers to the house during his presidency.
Replying to a question, the former president said had never been a beneficiary of the National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO). He said the former chief justice of the apex court had nullified the NRO and all the cases against him had been reopened.
He said Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and Nawaz Sharif may have benefited from the NRO. The PPP leader termed allegations against him publicity stunt of his rivals.
Talking about the economic crises in the country, he said former president Pervez Musharraf had also faced the same crises but situation turned better as he received foreign aid after allying Pakistan with the US after the 9/11 tragedy.
Zardari further said that when PPP came into power, the foreign aid was suspended.
He said that they had introduced futuristic policies but when Nawaz Sharif came into power, he discarded his policies.
