I am being attacked from all sides and friends are being taken into custody: Zardari

PPP co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari claimed on Saturday that he is being “attacked from all sides” and his friends are being taken into custody as part of a larger conspiracy to reverse the 18th Amendment.
Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Zardari said even if he tried to repeal the amendment, other provinces would not agree to it.
“I saw during the election campaign why they are attacking me from all sides,” he said, without specifying to whom he was referring. “I am now understanding that it is a quarrel over the 18th Amendment.”
He said when “they” had failed in their effort to take away the government in Sindh from the PPP, efforts were started to undo the amendment.
