‘Good news’: Zardari, Bilawal to contest elections for National Assembly

'We will not spare Mughal Badshah'

KARACHI - Pakistan People's Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has announced that both he and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will contest polls to join the parliament.

Breaking the “good news” to his party workers in a mammoth gathering in PPP’s stronghold Gari Khuda Bux of Naudero, Sindh, Zardari revealed that he would contest the election from Nawabshah while Bilawal will kick start his parliamentary politics from Larkana.

The former president also criticied Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for his cordial ties with his Indian counterpart saying, “Mian sahib, have you ever thought what the children in Kashmir feel when you have luncheons with Narendra Modi?”

“I am not coming to the Parliament to topple you; we only intend to teach you certain things, to consult with you on national issues,” the PPP co-chairman addressed to the prime minister.

“We have fought dictators, but never raised our voice against the military,” he added.

Zardari, who returned last week to the country after 18 months of ‘self-exile’, highlighted the Kashmir issue in addition to slamming the prime minister. “We will not spare Mughal Badshah as it has been decided.”

He also supported the suggestion of Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) should be placed under judiciary.

Zardari had left the country in June last year following a hard-hitting speech, in which he lashed out at the military establishment for overstepping its domain.
