Islamabad, July 19 (ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has vowed to transform his country into a 'great nation', saying no one will be allowed to challenge the writ of the constitution.
Speaking at a dinner party that he hosted for PPP parliamentarians here, Zardari said he would achieve what other leaders before him have failed to do.
"We have started from where Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir left.We have come a long way, and in the process, fought three dictators. But whatever the situation, we were never intimidated by them," Zardari said.
Criticizing the subsequent military regimes, Zardari blamed the dictatorship for the country's current turbulent situation.
"I would like to go down in the annals of history rather than dying at the hands of a dictator," The Daily Times quoted Zardari, as saying.
He said the PPP has always worked for the needy and downtrodden people, and would continue to do so in future also.
Zardari also said that Friends of Democratic Pakistan's next meeting will be chaired by US President Barack Obama. (ANI)
