*NAWABSHAH: Former president Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday announced to contest upcoming general elections from Nawabshah.*
“Strategy for the upcoming general elections is on the anvil. We will contend elections with full preparation this time,” he said while addressing the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) office-bearers, workers and notables of the city at Zardari House in Nawabshah.
MNA Dr Azra Pechuho, provincial minister Zia Lanjar, and other senior party leaders were also present on this occasion.
The ex-president said that his party will emerge victorious in the 2018 elections across the country and he would steer the country out of trouble.
Zardari claimed that the PPP was impeded from winning the returning officers’ elections in 2013 through a conspiracy and an impression was given that the PPP was an unpopular party in Punjab.
He said the party activists had worked hard, no matter how much hard times they had to undergo. He had always upheld faith in PPP workers, he said.
“Attempts were made to scare us in the past as well, but we are not from those who can be scared. We will not give in,” he said.
The PPP-Parliamentarian president also said Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto was their leader. He said his party would implement 18th Amendment of the constitution, according to which powers should be delegated to the local government.
Earlier, on Wednesday Zardari declared war on former prime minister Nawaz Sharif saying that he would never make any compromise with him.
