Former president Asif Ali Zardari Thursday reached the Parliament House where he, to a question of a journalist, maintained that the prime minister’s threat letter was fake, those [the government] were also fake, and the government’s mandate was also fake.
It was reported by the 24NewsHD TV channel that the former president arrived in the Parliament to attend the National Assembly session for a debate and voting on the no-confidence motion against the prime minister.
Upon his arrival in the Parliament, a journalist asked him: “Will you attend the meeting of the parliamentary committee on national security that is to review the alleged threat letter?”
The former president answered: “Whether we ourselves review the letter or not, this letter is fake. These [the government] are also fake. The government’s mandate is also fake.”
Earlier, the united opposition had demanded that the government bring the alleged threat letter to Parliament for a debate.
The opposition parties also decided not to attend the meeting of the parliamentary committee on national security called by National Assembly Speaker Asad Qaiser.
The united opposition also wrote a letter to the National Assembly speaker, urging him to include the election of a new prime minister in the agenda of the National Assembly session.
The opposition, during a meeting prior to the National Assembly session, had also vowed to push for the no-confidence motion through legal and constitutional ways.
