Don’t want to be in contact with Nawaz

LAHORE: Pakistan Peoples Party supremo Asif Ali Zardari said on Wednesday that he has no interest in establishing contact with former prime minister Nawaz Sharif.

Sources said the former president made the comments during a meeting of the party’s core leadership at Bilawal House.

Zardari said the PPP also has no interest in becoming part of a ‘Grand National Dialogue’ proposed recently by Nawaz Sharif.

Sources quoted Zardari saying that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief has a different attitude when he is in power and a completely different tone when he is not.

On Tuesday, giving advice to the PPP, Railways Minister Saad Rafique had said that Zardari should advise his son and PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

“Bilawal said he will not receive our call, we have not called him. I do not understand who is advising Bilawal,” said the PML-N leader.

“Zardari is a sensible person, he should advise his son.”

Earlier, during his GT Road rally, Nawaz had hinted at initiating a ‘Grand National Dialogue’ with other political parties following his ouster by the Supreme Court
