Pakistan - Metro buses, trains cannot ensure election victory: Zardari

Former president Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday said that metro buses and trains would
not ensure victory for political parties in elections. He was addressing a public gathering in Peshawar. “This time around, the rulers will not be able to steal the mandate through rigging elections. Economic condition of the country is not strong. The government is continuously printing new currency bills,” he said. He said that there should be good relations with neighbouring countries. “While the PPP was in power, Pakistan’s relations with Afghanistan and India were good and there was peace. We should be friends with our neighbouring countries. Nawaz Sharif has the same policy as the Americans when it comes to waging wars. We will not let this happen,” Zardari said. Zardari said that Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was on fire. “However, those governing the province are unaware of it. They do not know how many people are homeless in KP,” he said. “The Pakhtuns are being asked why they are in Punjab, in Balochistan, in Islamabad. I am proud that Karachi is the biggest city of Pakhtuns,” Zardari said. “The PPP has decided that FATA will be merged with KP, and rights will be given to FATA’s youth and women at a par with other provinces. If we are given the opportunity, we will give them their rights,” he said.
