ISLAMABAD: PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari said on Saturday that all national institutions must work within their assigned parameters in order to ensure victory in the ongoing fight against militancy.
“Fight against militancy is a collective fight of the whole nation. It can be fought successfully only when it is fought collectively, with each institution performing its assigned duties, within (its) parameters,” the former president said in his message on the eve of the 62nd birth anniversary of his late spouse and former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.
“As for the PPP, we are committed to exterminating the militant ideology that is posing an existential threat to the country,” he said.
The message was released by the party’s media office hours before Mr Zardari’s departure from Islamabad to Naudero where he will hold meetings with PPP office-bearers on Sunday.
Mr Zardari, whose outburst against the military leadership during a speech at a function here on June 17 created ripples in the political circles, termed the ongoing fight against terrorism a success and gave credit to the “unity of political forces” and “state agencies”.
