“Those who brought Prime Minister Imran Khan are now admitting they committed a mistake,” said the former president.
“Allah Almighty knows better how they can fix this mistake,” Zardari further said.
Important to note, over the last two months, the government increased the prices of petroleum products. As a result, it has been facing severe criticism ever since. Major opposition parties, including the PML-N and PPP along with opposition alliance PDM held rallies against the government for the “unprecedented inflation.”

A division bench of the Islamabad High Court comprising IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah and Justice Amir Farooq heard the National Accountability Bureau’s (NAB) appeal against Zardari’s gold reference and Ursus tractors deal.
The NAB prosecutor, in two references against Zardari, sought a month’s time to prepare his arguments on his appeals pending since 2014.
The IHC approved a two-week deadline for the NAB prosecutor to finalize his arguments. It also warned NAB that if it fails to prepare arguments by that time, then the court will decide on the existing record available with it.
