Zadari plans to 'steer country out of trouble' after sweeping polls
NAWABSHAH - Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari revealed on Sunday that if his party is elected in the next general elections, he would put himself in the driving seat.

Addressing a political rally in Nawabshah, the former president claimed that the party will brush aside political rivals with a  sweeping majority in the next electoral tussle adding that he would then steer the country out of trouble.

"I will sit on the driving seat myself and show how a country is run," asserted the politician.

Zardari went on and claimed that PPPP was stopped from winning the ‘RO’s [returning officers’] elections’ in 2013 through a conspiracy and an impression of the PPP’s disapproval in Punjab was propagated by throwing it out of the last general elections, Express Tribune reported.

He expressed that threats were being hurled again, however, hastened to add that despite threats, the party will not stand down.

"We have survived martial laws. This time we’ll contest the election with full preparation," said Zardari.

Firing a broadside at Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) government, he said ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif was to be blamed for the country’s dismal situation.

“We will put the country back on the path of progress and prosperity and fill the national exchequer after forming the government,” said the PPP supremo.

The 62-year-old politician declared that his son Bilwal had become a ‘100% leader’ adding that his daughter Aseefa will contest the polls from a Nawabshah constituency.
