PESHAWAR: PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari paid tribute to his party workers on Monday and told them that the strength of his party workers inspired him to look into the eyes of the enemy.
Addressing a political gathering in the city, Zardari said admitted that none of his ministers were from the poor masses.
“I admit that none of my ministers was the son of a poor man,” said the PPP co-chairman. “But I want to tell you that I want to make the son of a farmer a minister,” he added.
Urging party workers to come out in droves under PPP’s flag, Zardari said that one should go for the rational approach rather than the emotional one.
“We want to establish a High Court in FATA,” said the former president. “We selected five ministers from the FATA area,” he added.
Zardari said that there was a need to solidify the party from the base and stated that no other party had given Pashtuns the identity that PPP had provided them with.
During his speech, he slammed the federal government and urged the masses not to expect anything from the incumbent rulers since they did not have any idea how to govern and tackle the problems of the people.
