Islamabad Politics Report/Moazzam Raza Tabassam: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday urged all political parties to unite in passing a resolution against the PTI government’s failure.
The PPP co-chairman was addressing a press conference accompanied by former Senate chairman Nayyar Bukhari, former prime minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf and Latif Khosa .
“A policy should be formed to determine the direction in which we are headed,” said Zardari.
The PTI government’s incompetence will not remain hidden for very long, Zardari said,
“The PTI government will fail in completing its tenure as it is not fit to run the country,” said the former president of Pakistan while addressing the media on Sunday.
“During our tenure, we devised future policies which were not acceptable to Sharif,” said former President.
To a question, he said, “The cases that I am facing today are all made up by Sharif, but that does not mean the distances cannot be shortened.”
“The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is calling peoples’ servants to answer questions in investigations, the same has happened in the time of former president Pervez Musharraf,” he said.
Answering a question, Zardari said he did not make any remarks about the NAB chairman, rather he raised questions about the latter’s thinking and manner of work.
Former president Asif Ali Zardari said that he had never been a beneficiary of the national reconciliation ordinance (NRO).
“The last chief justice had nullified the NRO. So I had to contest the cases in courts,” the PPP leader told media persons in Islamabad.”The NRO was used as a publicity stunt by our rivals. Some parties may have benefited from it. But I got the relief through courts.”
The present Government resulting out of a dubious electoral process has in the very short span of time exposed its complete incapacity to regulate the affairs of the state.
The policies so far initiated have resulted into a colossal mess up and aggravated the economic crises. The price spiral has unprecedently depreciated the currency and resulted in price hike inflicting a bombshell on the People of Pakistan throwing not only the have-nots but the People of Pakistan into the abysmal dismay of poverty. It is high time that the Government in power resorts to consultative process of the issues in the Parliament taking the entire nation into confidence and taking decisions with consensus instead of the blame game and the immaturity reflected so far from top to bottom in the Government hierarchy.
