Imran Khan has come under fire from former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari for allegedly taking too many U-turns. Zardari strongly disapproves of this behavior.
Zardari stated in a media interview on Monday in Vehari that he could speak with any political figures except for Imran Khan because of his propensity for making U-turns. While Imran Khan was prime minister, he did a few things that needed to be stopped, and if they hadn’t been, he would have “sold more institutions,” the speaker continued.
In addition, Zardari voiced his concerns about Pakistan’s impending digital census, noting that the PPP has its own viewpoint on the subject. He insisted that the Pakistan Democratic Alliance was not a member of the coalition government but rather the PPP (PDM).
Zardari brushed off recent comments made by his son, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, about leaving the government as a fit of adolescent rage. He continued by saying that, in contrast to himself, Bilawal was a young man who had trouble controlling his wrath.
Zardari added that Imran Khan was unaccustomed to it, despite the fact that one needed to be tough in politics and willing to serve time in jail. He also made comments regarding the most recent by-elections in Rajanpur, claiming that the PTI had won due to the effects of inflation rather than its popularity.
When questioned about Imran Khan’s potential detention, Zardari claimed that the interior ministry was in charge of that matter and that he had no involvement. He insisted that the interior ministry would take the necessary action.
