PESHAWAR: Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Wednesday that he did not recognise Pak Sarzameen Party as a democratic party and criticised PSP's recent 'million march'.

Holding a press conference, Asif Zardari said that he did recognise PSP as a party. He also took shots at the party's 'million march' which was held in Karachi a few days ago and said that choking Shahrah-e-Faisal was tantamount to blocking Pakistan.

Zardari slammed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif as well during his media talk. The PPP co-chairman said that Nawaz was unable to manage the affairs of his country.

"Nawaz Sharif claims that he is a lion. But a lion is vicious, isn't he?" he said, going on to say that a lion is the king of the jungle only in phrases.

Zardari said that when PPP comes into power, it would stop the privatization of hospitals. He boasted that Pakistan Peoples Party would form the government in Pakistan this time around.

Asif Zardari also took shots at PTI when he said that 'Naya Pakistan' was just a hoax that was not visible anywhere.

"I haven't seen 'Naya Pakistan' anywhere. If you do, inform me as well," he said.

Zardari said that over here, the 'old Pakistan' was in a bad condition.He criticised the word tsunami and said that in the next election, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa would not be swept by any tsunami.

Zardari also slammed the government's FATA bill, terming it a lollipop. He lamented the fact that nowadays, Muslims were fighting with each other whether it was in Iraq, Syria or Yemen.

"The one who is killing and the one who is getting killed are both reciting the kalima," said Zardari.
