Vehari: The rumours regarding differences between Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) were already the talk of the town, and now co-Chairman PPP Asif Ali Zardari has clearly stated to have no connection with PDM.
While talking to the media in Vehari, Asif Ali Zardari talked about the election strategy for general polls in Punjab, scheduled to be held on April 30. Former president of Pakistan said that his party is not a part of the PDM, however, they can be referred to as partners in the government. PPP has been continuously stating their reservations over PDM governance as Pakistan faces inflation, economic challenges, and flood-related problems. Asif Ali Zardari also said that PPP would contest the election as a separate entity.
No Negotiations with Imran Khan
Asif Ali Zardari said that some of Imran Khan’s initiatives were unacceptable. He said that if Imran was allowed to stay in power he would have sold out the institutions of Pakistan. Mr Zardari believed that they have saved Pakistan by ousting the PTI chief, or else, he would have sold all the institutions of the country.
The PPP co-leader said that Imran is not a politician and that talks could only be initiated with political parties and politicians.
Bilawal Bhutto Not Satisfied with PDM
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister & Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has also said to part ways with PDM if the federal government does not fulfil financial assistance promises made to flood-affected areas of Sindh.
Bilawal Bhutto said that government has to keep up with the promises made to flood victims or else it would be difficult for PPP to retain their ministries. The PPP chairman also said that PPP would take the agenda to the National Assembly and also present it before the prime minister of Pakistan. Bilawal was hopeful that the federal government would address their concerns.
