Zardari challenges to Musharraf to return country, “if brave”

September 23, 2017 at 2:25 am

Toba Tek Singh : Pakistan Peoples Party Co-Chairperson Asif Ali Zardari, responding to former president General (retd) Pervez Musharraf’s allegations against him, said if Musharraf is so brave he should return to the country.
According to the details, PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari said that if former president Pervez Musharraf is “so brave” he should return to the country and face the courts.
Zardari was speaking to the media a day after Musharraf directly accused him of being complicit in Benazir Bhutto’s assassination.

Continuing his criticism of the former president, Zardari questioned why were clips of Musharraf in discos being circulated if he had gone to seek treatment for his backache.
Zardari, reacting to allegations pertaining to Murtuza Bhutto’s murder, stated that Benazir had said that one Bhutto has been attacked and another is being targeted.
“Politics of the past was based on levelling allegations against political opponents,” Zardari added.
During his Friday press conference, the PPP leader said that the problems of the country can only be solved through a complete understanding of economic growth, which, he said, the ruling government lacks.
He also criticised the PML-N for not having an appointed a foreign minister earlier. He said that Khawaja Asif ─ who was appointed as foreign minister in Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi’s cabinet in August ─ could not hold meaningful dialogue with other countries as they are aware that Asif may not retain his post after the General Election 2018.
“They have purposefully weakened Pakistan’s case,” Zardari said.
“The youth needs us, the youth needs jobs. They have no understanding. Nothing will come off building roads, how will we pay off our debts?” Zardari said, criticising what he sees are the incumbent government’s ‘faults’.
Zardari even criticised his political opponents; former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairperson Imran Khan.
When asked about Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan’s recently launched campaign against him, Zardari said: “I, too, am going to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.” He also criticised the PTI for not implementing enough development projects in the province.
Over the development in PTI-governed Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Zardari said that “we can’t see any progress in the province.”
He remarked: “Nawaz does not know the art of governance. Nothing happens from building roads.”
Speaking about Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who is being probed by National Accountability Bureau, he said that Dar has fled and left the country injured.
