ISLAMABAD: PPP leader and former President Asif Ali Zardari on Friday dared former military ruler Pervez Musharraf to return to Pakistan and contest the Benazir Bhutto assassination case.

“Accusing the accuser is becoming the best defence. When Murtaza Bhutto was assassinated, they held me and Benazir Bhutto responsible. On the Benazir Bhutto had said that you get a Bhutto to get another Bhutto," Zardari told media persons at Kamalia.

"Unfortunately, these are the tragedies of third world politics and Pakistan is full of such tragedies," he said.

"If he (Musharraf) can dance, why can't he come back to Pakistan and face the court," he questioned.

Zardari said that economy was Pakistan’s biggest challenge.

“Time has proved once again that Sharifs don’t know how to run a government,” he said, adding that who world pay the heavy foreign debt taken to construct roads.

Responding to a question, he said that the outcome of NA-120 by-election was not a standard to judge a party’s popularity.

Accused the PML-N government of weakening Pakistan’s case internationally, he said that the PPP had had been calling for the appointment of a permanent foreign minister for three years.

“Now I am going to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, where PTI has done nothing except building a fly-over,” he said. - SAMAA
