KARACHI: Former President of Pakistan and Co-Chairman of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Asif Ali Zardari Friday told his critics, calling them ‘political actors’ that he belonged to Pakistan and will die here too.
He was speaking to the party workers, who had gathered in large numbers at Star Gate near Karachi airport to receive the party co-chairman on his return to the country after spending 18 months in a self-imposed exile in Dubai.
“This rally reminds me of Lahore,” said Zardari, who repeatedly chanted “Jiye Bhutto” and “Pakistan Khappay”.
He said he had returned with a ‘program of hopes for Pakistan, not disappointments’. Kashmir will become part of Pakistan, said the former president.
Emphasizing importance of social media for creating awareness among the masses, the PPP leader said the so called ‘Parha Likha Punjab’ (educated Punjab) must watch what is being said on social media.
“PPP will again come to power… PPP belongs to Pakistan,” he said. “I have brought message of hope for entire Pakistan. How can we leave people of Pakistan alone?
“Listen all political actors, I belong to Pakistan and I will die in Pakistan… I remember the day when Shahid Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto came here… she will always remain with us.”
Commenting on prevailing political situation of the country, he said there was a lot of dismay at the moment in the country however he added he does not have a plan of dismay. “I have brought the message of hope… Pakistan’s flag is a symbol.
“Pakistan is a nation that has overcome all challenges. Pakistan is not a country of terrorists.”
Zardari said it does not matter who is in power today but what really matters is ‘who will lead us tomorrow’.
“Those taking credit for CPEC (China-Pakistan Economic Corridor) seemed to have forgotten who the architect for the plan was CPEC is not just a road but a much more comprehensive development project,” said the former president of Pakistan.
“Pakistan is secure with the help of armed forces.” -BusinessRecoder
