Former president and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari Tuesday said that his party wanted to bring change in the lives of the people by remaining within the system.
Addressing a reception hosted by PPP Punjab President Manzoor Wattoo, Zardari said that PPP had always made sacrifices for furthering democracy in Pakistan and it would continue to resist anti-democratic forces.
He said that the country witnessed development only in tenure of political governments. “There is no room for dictators and technocrats in the country,” Zardari added. He said that the party was reorganising itself in Punjab and vowed to thwart all attempts to keep the party away from the province.
Criticising Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, the former president said: “A 60-year-old man is claiming of becoming a leader of youth.”
Referring to PTI, Zardari said that he wants everyone, including those who tendered their resignations and staging sit-ins, to remain in the assemblies.
He also announced that his daughter Aseefa Bhutto Zardari would take part in active politics in next few years.
“PPP has empowered women,” Zardari said.
