Karachi (Staff Report): Co-chairman of Pakistan People's Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari alleged on Friday that former PM Nawaz Sharif has intentions to form "greater Punjab", which he explained as merger with Indian part of the region and do business with them.
According to details, the former president Zardari claimed that Nawaz-league never had the public mandate; they were always brought into power. Same was the case in 2013, he said it in his interview to a private TV channel.
Denying any soft corner for Sharif, Zardari called him a political rival and said, "The former premier has over Rs10 billion worth business portfolio in Pakistan." He added, "The companies Sharif is speaking of are public limited companies and their directors are some other people."
In the response of a question, the PP co-chairman said it was the Federal Investigation Agency's duty to trace out Sharif's assets, not his.
While criticizing the disqualified Prime Minister he said, there is difference in running the country and business.
The PPP co-chairman also lashed out at Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and said that PTI's politics is limited to central Punjab and it does not have any existence in Sindh or Balochistan.
Referring to the next election Zardari said, "PTI will lose its turf in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa however, in central Punjab all the three parties will have a tough contest."
