SUKKUR: Ex-president of Pakistan and Co-chairman of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Asif Ali Zardari said the killers of Benazir Bhutto were his enemies but they could not distance him from the people of Pakistan.

Speaking to the party leaders at Zardari House here on Sunday, he said the alliance with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) was in the benefit of the people of Sindh and the PPP government would form an alliance with the MQM, adding that development projects in Sindh would be completed on a priority basis.

Zardari claimed that his party would once again form the government at the centre, adding that his parliamentarians in the National Assembly would not create an uproar against Nawaz Sharif's regime. He wished that the current government would complete its tenure but urged Nawaz Sharif to review his policy to ensure peace in the country. He said his party was not against the Taliban and government talks but wanted the writ of the government in the interest of the nation.

The ex-president said that he had empowered parliament by transferring his powers in the grand interest of democracy, adding that his government had revived the 1973 Constitution in its original form during its tenure.

The co-chairman noted that the people of the rural areas did not have access to gas facilities; however, the Sindh government was chalking out a programme in which gas cylinders would be provided to the people living in the rural areas on subsidised rates. The PPP government had launched the Benazir Income Support Programme for empowering women, he added.

Commenting on the Karachi situation, Zardari said he had ordered the Sindh chief minister to ensure law and order in the province. He also directed the Sindh cabinet to focus on resolving the core issues of the people of Sindh as he would personally be monitoring the situation.Secretary Education Dr Fazal Pechuho, MNA Faryal Talpur and Dr Azra Mughal, among others were present on the occasion.
