Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Senator Farhatullah Babar has denied that Asif Ali Zardari began his career as a political analyst at BOL TV.
The remarks came a day after the channel announced that the former president had launched a career as an analyst on a weekly talk show.
BOL network took to Twitter to announce the new show, ‘Pakistan Khappay with President Asif Ali Zardari’, saying it was launched on March 19, and will be aired every Sunday 9:30pm.
The former president has been giving interviews to different television channels, including the recent one with Forbes magazine, and the interview with BOL wasn’t any different, Babar explained to BBC Urdu.
Allegations on Zardari aren’t new and have been leveled against him earlier as well, he added.
On Sunday, Zardari appeared live from Bilawal House, Karachi and responded to questions about current affairs, including Pakistan’s relations with its neighbouring countries, and the United States.
Earlier, similar advertisements were run for former president Pervez Musharraf and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chairman Tahirul Qadri, but those also had proven to be mere interviews.
