Pakistan Peoples Party Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari heavily criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government and said that he didn’t think that Imran Khan will complete his tenure as a prime minister adding that incapable people are ruling the country.
He was addressing a ceremony at the PPP’s Chang Secretariat, Nawazabad on Sunday (Dec 2). “Everyone thinks they are clever than us,” said the Former president. “I returned the presidential powers to parliament. If I had not done so, neither a dentist nor a pakoray wala would have been able to become president,”he said. “But they think we introduced the 18th amendment for ourselves.”
“During every tenure, political opponents have spent time in jail, but there was not a single political prisoner during the PPP tenure,” he said. “We did not keep opponents in jails nor did we hold anyone accountable … instead Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto were martyred for democracy while we spent time in jails.” “Kaptaan” (Prime Minister Imran Khan) made “false promises” and “took U-turns”, said Zardari. “Neither can he handle the economy nor the government. If he does not work he will have to go home and I don’t think Kaptaan will be able to run the government for long.”
Criticising Imran, he said, “You announced a South Punjab province, but took our slogan. The government is not sincere in making South Punjab a separate province. You say that Napoleon never took a U-turn, but history does not remember Napoleon nor Hitler as heroes.” “Due to the wrong policies of the government, the country has become unstable economy-wise,” he said, adding that the land in Punjab was fertile and ideal, but due to water scarcity, the farmers were facing financial crisis.
Zardari also lashed out the government ministers for making an unsuccessful attempt to spread undemocratic and disrespectful practices in parliament.
