ISLAMABAD: Co-chairperson of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and former president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari has almost ruled out any possibility of the PPP joining the Pakistan Democratic Movement – a movement launched by the opposition parties against the Imran Khan-led government.
He was talking to reporters after successfully securing a pre-arrest bail in connection with the New York property case. Zardari said it was highly unlikely that the PPP would join the PDM ranks ever again.
Responding to a comment on the announcement of the long march by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman against the government, Zardari said that the Maulana had marched previously as well.
Zardari’s comments of not joining the PDM come a day after the leaders of the PPP Bilawal Bhutto and the leader of the Opposition Shehbaz Sharif met yesterday. He criticised the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf government, stating that the government was full of incompetent people who were not good enough to rule.
