During his first visit to Vehari, former president and Co-Chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party, Asif Ali Zardari, spoke with the media about the state of the nation.
Zardari expressed his desire to correct the judiciary, just as the rest of the nation is being corrected. He claimed that the recent by-election in Rajanpur was not won by the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) due to popularity, but rather due to the effects of inflation.
Zardari also criticized Prime Minister Imran Khan, saying that he is not a skilled politician and cannot be relied upon to solve political issues. According to Zardari, hard work and tenacity are necessary traits in politics, which Khan lacks.
The former president also emphasized the importance of personal ties in improving political relations. He defended his own record in power, claiming that the PPP was not a part of the problem but a part of the solution, and that during his tenure there was no inflation.
Zardari also accused Khan of wanting to sell off public institutions, but pledged that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) would work to save the country.
Finally, Zardari expressed his reservations about the digital census and stated that Sindh has concerns about its implementation.
