PPP Disowns Asif Zardari’s Statement Against Army Terming it as his Personal
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party on one of their websites have clearly suggested that Party Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari speech on Tuesday lambasting the security establishment in retaliation to the current operation against government officials by paramilitary forces, is his personal statement.
The speech, an unprecedented event, which none expected came only when Army Chief was in Russia.
"You are here for only three years, whereas we are here forever" Zardari gave out a clear message to the Army Chief to take heed prior they take the stakes in their own hands.
Zardari said, “I know the art of war better than anyone else.”
The PPP co-chairman expressed annoyance at the purported character-assassination campaign against him and his party. “It needs to stop! There is a limit to everything.”
The former president said he could bring the whole country to a standstill on a single call. “If I give one call, the whole country from Karachi to Khyber will come to a grinding halt. The lockdown will continue until I call it off.”
Zardari said, “Anyone who tries to disturb us will get a befitting response. Be wary! If this doesn’t stop now, I shall come out with a list of generals who have been accused starting from the time Pakistan came into being. And then you’ll spend the rest of your lives providing explanations.”
PPP leaders have been making angry speeches in parliament after the Rangers chief’s statements, but political pundits are attaching much importance to the timing of Zardari’s speech, since the former president had been in a conciliatory mode on a number of issues after his party lost the 2013 general elections after completing their five-year tenure.
