Former president and Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) government won’t last long.

Addressing a public gathering in Sadiqabad today, the former president said that he doesn’t think the captain’s government will last long as Prime Minister Imran Khan made false promises and failed to work according to the aspirations of the nation.

Asif Zardari went on to say that the prime minister fails to understand the political issues, adding that Imran Khan will have to go home if he fails to deliver.

Don’t try to become a king after reading two books, he advised the premier.

“The circumstances were the same when his party came into power, adding that he transferred presidential powers to the parliament,” Zardari said.

“There were no political prisoners during the PPP’s tenure,” he added.  He also dispelled the notion that the PPP had passed the 18th amendment to serve its interests.

Zardari also said that if he hadn’t delegated the president’s powers to parliament, today no dentists or pakora sellers would be able to become president.

"Dentist would not have become president, If I had not transferred powers to parliament," he said, expressing the hope that Allah would once provide the PPP opportunity to rule the country.
