MALIKWAL: President Asif Ali Zardari, speaking at a rally in Malikwal, reassured the people and political powers on Wednesday that elections would be held on time and transparently.
He said that Pakistan would be taken into the 21st century, adding that we were fighting for our future generations.
On planning ahead, he said that although decisions needed to be taken today, there was a need to think ahead and plan for the future because “countries cannot run on a five-year philosophy”.
He said that even today, the government wants all parties to sit with them and think about Pakistan.
The president said that the incumbent government has tried to strengthen the regional relationships with China, Turkey and other countries in order to make Pakistan better for the future generations.
Zardari said that conspiracies against the government and the country were in action but added, “If anyone thinks they can weaken us, then they are mistaken.”
The rally, attended by many PPP supporters, was held to celebrate an Eid rally which had been postponed earlier.
