LAHORE: Former president Asif Ali Zardari said on Wednesday that he did not want to maintain contact with ex-prime minister Nawaz Sharif.
Zardari flew in from Dubai to Lahore yet stated that he had not contacted Nawaz Sharif and neither did he want to.
The former president brushed aside Nawaz Sharif’s ‘Grand National Dialogue’ offer by stating that PPP would have no part in it.
“When I don’t want to maintain any contact with him then how can we have a dialogue?” he asked.
Zardari said that Nawaz Sharif’s priorities changed when he assumed the mantle of prime minister of the country and when he was not.
“This time democracy is not under threat, rather Nawaz Sharif’s politics is,” he said.
Zardari praised Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and said that he was already active in the political arena. Zardari stated that Bilawal would bring PPP popularity in Punjab.
The former president and PPP co-chairman held consultations with party leaders.
