Lahore, Jan. 5 (ANI): Labelling the elected assemblies as his "political weapons," Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has said that he would "foil all conspiracies" through his weaponry.

"We are politicians, and will solve all the problems in a political manner," the Daily Times quoted Zardari, as saying.

In an interview with BBC Urdu, Zardari said he believed in the supremacy of the masses, as both houses of parliament and the four provincial assemblies were the "true forums of their power".

Pointing out that he was a constitutionally elected president, Zardari blamed "some circles" for employing unconstitutional methods to remove him from the Presidency.

Zardari's comments coincide with the Balochistan Assembly passing a confidence motion, while the Sindh Assembly has already approved a similar resolution.

Close presidential aides have revealed that the NWFP Assembly would soon follow course.

Zardari has called separate sessions of the Senate and National Assembly on January 11.

While Zardari has been warning that democracy is in danger, he insists that he can deal with "such conspiracies".

Most political analysts are viewing these comments as a reference to the army or the establishment.

But presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar said that Zardari has been referring to "anti-Bhutto elements". (ANI)
