PESHAWAR: Former President and PPP leader Asif Ali Zardari on Thursday accused the PML-N government of making Pakistan bankrupt.
Speaking to media persons in Peshawar, Asif Zardari said that the PML-N governments had always made the country bankrupt.
Referring to the Panama verdict, Zardari said that Nawaz Sharif did not know why he was ousted from power.
â€śWhen our prime minister [Yousuf Raza Gilani] was disqualified by the apex court, we had not taken out any rallies,â€ť he recalled, urging the Parliament to solve its issue on its own.
He said that the PPP had accepted the PML-N government despite having a fake mandate through ROs (returning officers) after the May 2013 elections.
â€śHow can a banned outfit become democratic?â€ť he remarked when asked about the newly-launchedÂ Muslim Milli Leauge (MML), the political front of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD).
The former president said that his partyâ€™s manifesto was to provide jobs to the youth. â€śYouth can be trapped by militants if they are not given jobs,â€ť he warned.
Zardari said that his party would announce a special package for the federally-administered tribal areas (FATA). - SAMAA
