PESHAWAR: Former president and PPP Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Monday that the show of Nawaz Sharif and ‘Kaptaan’ (captain) was over and now people would rule.
The former president was speaking at the FATA Convention here.
The former president asked people not to pin hope on the government. I know since the first day that the government is incapable. I did not campaign in the 2013 elections, but now me, Bilawal and Assefa will run election drive.
While pledging to construct Hydel Dam in Swat and other projects in FATA, Zardari said he still remember each and every promise Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto had made with the people of tribal areas. We want to see FATA’s own high court and the Supreme Court registry.
We had increased the FATA budget from Rs3 billion to 19 billion. The PPP-led government had inducted five ministers from tribal areas into cabinet.
Speaking about the CPEC project, Zardari said it was planned for FATA and not for Islamabad. He vowed to bring reforms in tribal areas after coming into power.
