Rulers stole away CPEC from the Pakhtuns: AAZ2017/04/25
MARDAN: Former President and Co-chairman of Pakistan People's Party, Asif Ali Zardari has said on Monday that the ruling party stole away China-Pakistan Economic Corridor from Pakhtuns and people's party would undo the alleged injustice.
Addressing a public meeting here, the former president said that before him nobody even dared to think of giving identity to Pakhtuns. He announced to visit all parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He condemned blocking of national identity cards of Pakhtuns. I hold the government responsible for blocking NICs of Pakhtuns, he added.
FATA's merger with KP was the dream of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. We will merge the tribal area with the KP, the former president claimed.
"Till today no one has thought about giving the Pakhtuns an identity," the PPP's co-chairman said, adding that he and his party members had "done everything" for them.
The former president criticised Imran Khan, Chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf by saying that the current political scenario has a lawmaker referred to as captain who neither know how speak Pashto neither hails from there.
While referring to Imran Khan without taking his name, Zardari said there is a captain who believes he is Pakhtun only because his name carries suffix of "Khan". He claims to be a leader of youth. But, in fact he is older than me. However, Bilawal is a leader of youth, Zardari said.
"Imran Khan, we told you to join us and form legislation and then take it to the court," he said. "But he [Khan] does not listen. He has never been to jail, he does not know how judges work, how justice works."
The former president chanted 'Go Nawaz Go' during his address and claimed that the apex court had chanted the same through its verdict in Panama Leaks case. Zardari criticised the verdict by saying both the litigants distributed sweets and rejoiced after the order.
He questioned the people to think whether Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was issuing funds for Sindh from his pocket. The people's party had given the impoverished Benazir Income Support Card, Zardari recalled.
He claimed PPP would form the government in General Elections 2018 and provide the with employment opportunities. 
Asif Ali Zardari said that even Supreme Court judges have told Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif - 'Go Nawaz Go.'
Addressing a public meeting in Mardan on Monday, Zardari said a senior Supreme Court judge, who will be future Chief Justice, has ruled that Nawaz Sharif be disqualified.
"Had Nawaz Sharif read the book referred by Justice Asif Khosa in his verdict, PML-N would not have distributed sweets," he remarked.
He noted that PTI had also distributed sweets after the Panama verdict. "What kind of verdict is this as both PML-N and PTI are distributing sweets," he questioned.
The former President also took a dig at Imran Khan. - NNI
