Lahore (Staff Report): Former president and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has alleged that ousted prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his brother Shahbaz Sharif twice planned to assassinate him.
Zardari said that Sharif brothers plotted his murder when he was going to a court to attend his hearing. “The Sharif brothers – former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his younger brother Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif – twice planned my murder in captivity in 1990s,” Zardari said while speaking to party workers at Bilawal House Lahore.
Zardari further said Nawaz has been trying to make a contact with him to seek his support but “I have refused”.
“I have not yet forgotten what they [Sharifs] have done to Benazir Bhutto [his wife] and me. We forgave them and signed Charter of Democracy, but still Mian sahib [Nawaz] betrayed me and went to court in memogate in order to label me a traitor,” he said.
