On Wednesday, Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry advised Pakistan People’s Party and Pakistan Muslim League to move away from Asif Ali Zardari and Nawaz Sharif, both being investigated in mega-corruption scandals and focus on creating a new political narrative.
In a strongly worded tweet, Fawad Chaudhry, referring to Nawaz Sharif and Zardari, stated that the leadership of PPP and PLMN is “fearful over corruption cases” has ruined the future of both the political parties. He tweeted, “Scared leadership nervous over the outcome of the corruption cases filed against them, has carved out a bleak future for both the parties”.
Islamabad High Court fixed hearing into two out of four pleas filed by NAB challenging Zardari’s acquittal in the corruption cases in Polo Ground and Ursus Tractors.
He remarked that in attempts to divert the general public’s attention from more serious issues, the “scared” leadership of PML-N and PPP is opening up “non-serious” discussion on the 18th Amendment and the president style of governance. Information Minister added that despite their efforts of opening up these irrelevant debates, they will not succeed in diverting the public’s attention from the corruption cases filed against former President Asif Ali Zardari and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
Fawad Chaudhry’s tweet has come in the wake of PPP President Zardari’s press conference on Tuesday, where he pledged to put up strong opposition to any attempts of introducing a presidential form of government in Pakistan.
Addressing the media after the accountability court’s hearing on cases related to money laundering and fake bank accounts in Islamabad, Zardari stated, as quoted by The News, “New experiments are being conducted in Pakistan on a daily basis. See what happens in this business. Let them try, we will oppose them,” he said.
Zardari stressed that PPP is strongly opposed to such a form of government, and alleged, “The situation is getting worse day by day.” Today (Thursday), Islamabad High Court fixed hearing into two out of four pleas filed by NAB challenging Zardari’s acquittal in the corruption cases in Polo Ground and Ursus Tractors.
