- Chandio says PPP can’t be scared through fake allegations, always faced trials with courage
Adviser to Sindh Chief Minister on Information Moula Bux Chandio on Monday categorically rejected the allegations levelled by a section of media that Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari owns a property in Hyde Park area of London.
“The (media) report is fabricated. The allegations levelled absolutely baseless and aim to malign the former president,” Chandio said, and quoted the PPP co-chairman as saying that he would relinquish the entire property as was claimed by a private television, to the control of eminent social worker Abdul Sattar Edhi for his Public Trust.
Chandio said there was nothing new as similar allegations had been laid against the former president in the past and none of those “baseless” and “shameful” allegations was ever proven.
“It is in the record of history that all cases registered against him (Asif Zardari) on the basis of fake, baseless allegations could not be proven in any court of law, but still he was jailed for the crimes he never committed,” he said, adding “Zardari is a man of principle and believes in serving the masses without any discrimination. And this new series of baseless allegations won’t weaken his firm resolve which he is doing quite diligently.”
The adviser alleged that a band of conspirators in Lahore at the behest of their masters was engaged in gross tactical maneuver of diverting people’s attention from corruption of their master and this new chapter of conspiracies was in fact part of the media trial.
“PPP is well aware of the intentions of this typical pack of conspirators. They cannot intimidate us because we have always faced the trials and shall still not run from the field,” he went on to say.
Chandio said the PPP was a pro-people party and never concealed any asset from the masses. He also said that the party leadership was holding consultations for a possible legal action against that particular private television.
