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.
‚ÄúWhen our prime minister [Yousuf Raza Gilani] was disqualified by the apex court, we had not taken out any rallies,‚ÄĚ 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.
‚ÄúHow can a banned outfit become democratic?‚ÄĚ he remarked when asked about the newly-launched¬† Muslim Milli Leauge (MML), the political front of Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD).
The former president said that his party‚Äôs manifesto was to provide jobs to the youth. ‚ÄúYouth can be trapped by militants if they are not given jobs,‚ÄĚ he warned.
Zardari said that his party would announce a special package for the federally-administered tribal areas (FATA). - SAMAA
