Will not save PML-N govt again: Asif Ali Zardari

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari said on Tuesday that his party will not make efforts in the future to save the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), adding that former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has emptied the national coffers.
“We have save their government twice, we will not save them again in the future,” said the former president.
The former president was addressing PPP’s golden jubilee rally organised at the capital’s Parade ground.
Zardari said that whatever will unfold in the future will be on the basis of the public’s vote.
The PPP co-chair further said that on every PPP foundation day, he remembers the late Benazir Bhutto, who would have been proud to see her son Bilawal Bhutto today.
“I present to you Bilawal,” he said, adding “I believe, you people would be loyal to my children the way you were to Benazir and me”.
The former president added that after the five-year rule of PPP, the government fulfilled Benazir’s vision.
While mocking former military ruler Gen (retd) Pervez Musharraf, Zardari said that the former army chief has taken refuge outside Pakistan after coming to know that he has no future in politics.
PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto earlier reached Islamabad’s Parade Ground, along with the party co-chair and former president Asif Ali Zardari, to commemorate the party’s golden jubilee.
PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto in his speech is expected to shed light on the party’s future political discourse.
The preparations for the rally were completed earlier after which supporters began amassing at the venue.
On December 4, Bilawal had announced the party’s plans to hold a rally in Islamabad in honour of the party’s golden jubilee celebrations.
While addressing media in the federal capital on Monday, Bilawal advised political opponent and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif to take retirement from politics.
Nawaz Sharif should take a retirement for the betterment of democracy and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz, he remarked.
The PPP leader said that Nawaz-government has not remained serious in governance for the last four years. He said that from last four years the country did not have any foreign minister.
