Zardari lock horns with Nawaz

Asif Ali Zardari, co-chairperson of PPP, has said that neither he has any contact with Nawaz Sharif nor want to make any.

Addressing the party leaders on Wednesday, he said, “I want to make it clear that we do not want to be a part of any national dialogue.”

He said he will not join hands with Mian Nawaz Sharif for any grand alliance or constitutional amendments. Zardari’s recent remarks will boost the morale of the party and its workers. “When we do not want to make any contact with Nawaz Sharif then there is no question of dialogue left behind.”

The former president said democracy is not in any kind of danger rather the politics of Nawaz Sharif is at risk. “The PPP’s public gathering of Chiniot is more than enough for everyone to open their eyes. I have called Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to Lahore and he will increase the popularity of the party in Punjab,” he added.

Zardari’s statement has also now confirmed that the PML-N is rapidly heading towards isolation and oblivion which was a claim of the Nawaz Sharif party about Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) after their Dharna (sit-in) in August 2014.

If at all, PPP and PTI come in tandem, to extend their tangible support to the ongoing ladies sit-in of the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) in Lahore; and evolve a policy of fielding joint candidate for NA-120 then the results can be awesome and unimaginable for the strengthening of democracy and rejection of dynastic policies in Pakistan.

In this regard, PPP and Zardari deserve full credit for always giving opportunities of placement on very high positions to their dedicated workers class cadre, unlike the PML-N which gave top positions to about 30 close relatives of the Sharif family, one way or the other.
