He said the PPP came into power in 2008, when the country was passing through very tough time and added that Swat operation was initiated after building the national consensus.
Asif Ali Zardari said 18th amendment was passed with an aim to give financial rights to the provinces and make the federation more stronger. During his tenure, his government ensured constitutional rights to all the provinces to make the federation strong.
