LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Asif Ali Zardari Sunday said there were many ‘misdirected children’ in today’s politics of the country and that his party will not buy the 4-month long TV drama and capsize the boat of democracy.
“We are not in a hurry, so the captain may keep on bowling,” Asif Zardari said while addressing a public meeting here to mark the founding day of the PPP.
He said had we allowed the boat of democracy to sink, it would pave the way for someone to repeat the words of ‘Meray Aziz Hum Watno’. “I deem Nawaz Sharif better than ‘Meray Aziz Hum Watno’,” he added.
The PPP Chairman said there was a huge difference between the politics of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan and that of ours. “Imran Khan represents a narrow mindset while our view captures a forward-looking perspective,” he claimed.
He said Imran Khan’s politics seem to be directed by the ‘finger of the umpire’. “This is not how politics is done.”
