ISLAMABAD:

Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry has said that Asif Ali Zardari and those accompanying him have no chances of coming in power even if they continue to wait for their turn for another three years.

"After every three months, Zardari and co. begin to feel that the following three months are important [regarding the dismissal of the incumbent government," Fawad said in a post on the micro-blogging website Twitter on Monday.

"You won't have any chances even after three years from now. A lot of time has passed and you are far behind," he added. The minister further said, "the way isn't clear to you and so you should [leave politics] and focus on business instead."

The remarks have come a day after the former president and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chair said that the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) was united and would 'attack' the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf-led government from all sides.

Zardari, during a telephonic conversation with PPP Punjab leader Chaudhry Manzoor, dismissed speculations of a rift between his party and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).

The veteran PPP leader said all options were still on the table including a no-confidence motion, resignations, long march and even a countrywide wheel-jam strike. He maintained that the PDM would utilise all available options to 'rid' the country of the ruling PTI government.

The reports of differences between both the parties emerged on Saturday after PML-N’s Ahsan Iqbal disagreed with PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s recommendation of tabling a no-confidence motion in parliament, instead of organising protest rallies across the country to remove the ruling party from power.
