GHOTKI: Pakistan Peoples Party president Asif Ali Zardari on Friday warned that no one can scare away his party leadership and assured his supporters that there is nothing to be frightened of.
Addressing a rally in Ghotki, the former president told the participants not to be scared as “no one can scare us away”.
“A nation that is united and aware of its rights cannot be made to back down. No one can scare your leadership,” Zardari said.
“What sin have we committed? The work we have done will be written in the history records. A country only becomes stronger when its people are happy.”
The PPP leader said he would face down any one who attempted to challenge him. “We have been in opposition even after winning elections [in the past]. We come here to serve the public, not to serve ourselves,” he added.
It is his party’s philosophy to give rights to the poor first, the former president reminded.
Zardari is among 172 individuals who have been placed on the Exit Control List by the government. His son, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and sister Faryal Talpur, have also been put on the no-fly list.
Sindh chief minister Syed Murad Ali Shah and former chief minister Qaim Ali Shah have also been barred from flying abroad.
