After that, a lawyer from Nawab Shah (The hometown of PPP) claimed in a video that Former president Asif Ali Zardari has passed away and his corpse has been stored in cold roam (Morgue) by his family. Watch the video, below.
The video of the lawyer became viral on social media and people started questioning the PPP leadership “Has Asif Ali Zardari died for real?”.
Zardari has not appeared in public since January 2020. His father died the same way. Hakim Zardari was kept on ventilator for many months before Zardari ordered to pull the plug.
The former president was extremely sick when he was last seen on the media. There was no word from Asif Ali Zardari since January 2020. The official Twitter account of Zardari has not shared anything since June 2019.
Yesterday a message was shared on the media by the PPP spokesperson, saying that Former president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari paid tribute to Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on his 41st anniversary on April 4, 2020.
But the message was not shared by the former president himself nor he appeared on the television.
Despite the wave of rumours of Asif Zardari’s death, PPP leadership hasn’t issued any statement to confirm or deny the News. This attitude of PPP leadership is increasing the doubts among the public, that rumours may have some fact.
Whatever the truth is, these families are expert to gain political advantages even from their corpses. Truth may prevail soon.
