ISLAMABAD: Asking workers to start party’s campaign for the upcoming general elections, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has claimed that the situation today is different from 2013, when, according to him, the polls were stolen to favour former premier Nawaz Sharif.

“Elections in 2013 were stolen by ROs [returning officers] and Nawaz Sharif was brought to power but now the circumstances are different and the PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has entered into politics,” he said on Saturday while addressing the PPP office bearers of District Rawalpindi.

Zardari said whenever the PPP comes to power it benefits the people, provides jobs to the youth, price hike is bridled and resolves issues concerning poor people of Pakistan.

“The PPP is following the path treaded by [its founder] Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and [slain chairperson] Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto to create a society which is prosperous and peaceful.

“We all will fulfill the dreams of Benazir Bhutto. Her foreign policies were independent and her mission was to empower women. She wanted to get rid of ignorance and poverty from the country,” he added.

Zadari also asked the workers to start election campaign and spread the message of PPP chairman to ‘every corner of the country’, said a statement issued by the PPP media office.
