Former president and co-chairman of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Asif Ali Zardari Friday called for unity among all political forces to face challenges facing the country, vowing that his party would continue with its policy of reconciliation and dialogue.

“The world is changing and we need to change as well. It’s better to change ourselves before the enemy strikes,” Zardari said while addressing a joint press conference with Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief Sirajul Haq after a meeting at JI Headquarters at Mansoora.

Zardari said the PPP had achieved the impossible through the Charter of Democracy.

“Nothing can be achieved in isolation,” Zardari said. “We have to think constructively about sitting together, collectively.” Criticising the protesting parties, Zardari said those who were holding rallies had their own vested interests at heart, not solutions to problems of the people.

He said that all stakeholders need to cooperate in building more dams and power projects to bring relief to the people. The former president pointed out that Pakistan would soon need between 50,000 to 60,000 MW of electricity and that they needed power solutions that would meet the demand and provide cheap electricity.

Responding to criticism over family politics as his son prepares to formally enter politics, Zardari said people should be thankful that Bilawal actually wanted to enter politics despite losing his mother to it. He added that Bilawal was willing to serve the people through politics.

“Despite losing his mother, Bilawal still says democracy is the best revenge.”

SIRAJ REITERATES PLEDGE TO DEMOCRACY:

Addressing reporters, Sirajul Haq said that democracy is a blessing but its favourable impacts were not being transferred to the masses.

Haq said that staging peaceful sit-ins was the democratic right of everyone, but it was time to think about the country’s future.

The JI chief said that had the government taken everyone into confidence, the present crisis would not have arisen. He commended the PPP for playing a constructive role as part of the opposition’s political jirga to resolve the deadlock between protesters and the government.

“Parties have a responsibility to save all four provinces,” Haq said. “Rejecting political norms, we need to embrace a new democratic, political culture.”

  2. Old Fashoned gang has no anymore chance to help any more! to anyone, Ir Pakistan needs new blood new leaders

  3. Zardari's official biography states he attended the Pedinton School in Britain, His British education, however, has not been confirmed, and a search did not turn up any Pedinton School in London. The issue of his diploma was contentious because a 2002 rule required candidates for Parliament to hold a college degree, but the rule was overturned by Pakistan's Supreme Court on April 2008. How he came to be president without Diploma! Go Nawaz Go
