ISLAMABAD: Former President Asif Ali Zardari has said that they will send government packing to restore democracy and save the country.
The PPP co-chairman was addressing his party led all parties conference (APC).
Asif Zardari also thanked PML-N supremo for accepting PPP’s invitation and said that Benazir Bhutto signed charter of democracy with Nawaz Sharif and both parties cooperated to remove Musharraf from office and pass 18th amendment.
Foundation of a country is laid on democracy, after which prosperity follows, he added.
He further said that 18th amendment is a wall around the constitution and because of this amendment, no one can look at the constitution with evil intensions.
“We have never seen such stringent censorship across the country,” Zardari stated. “This reflects on the weakness of the government. It is impossible to curtail the emerging voices of the media.
The ex-president also especially welcomed PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz, saying he was “fully aware of the hardships you’ve been through and respect that”.
“My solidarity is with Maryam Nawaz Sharif; she is like my daughters, she has suffered a lot in her struggle, and we stand by her.
