ISLAMABAD: Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudhry yesterday said Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Zardari should not be taken seriously as presently he was in a state of mental shock.
Talking to media outside Parliament House, he said Zardari was in the habit of mentioning things at inappropriate and wrong time. Zardari could not become popular, whatever he might say, he added.
His statement comes on the heels of the former president’s claims who said no one gets to power corridors without a deal, adding that incumbent Prime Minister Imran Khan too came to power under a pact.
The PPP leader said efforts are underway to nab him, and added that his arrest would only increase his popularity. He declared that he could not be intimidated by any case.
Mr Zardari said he had no tussle with the incumbent government. The PPP is a democratic party and served the people of the country, he added.
He claimed that no one gets to power corridors without a deal. Mr Khan and former prime minister Nawaz Sharif also came to power after striking similar deals, he claimed and added Mr Sharif knew the art of striking deals but lacked the skill to run the system.
