ISLAMABAD: Senator Farhatullah Babar, spokesperson for former president and PPP co-chairperson Asif Ali Zardari, on Tuesday categorically denied rumours of Tanvir Zamani's marriage to Zardari, adding that the former had absolutely no links with the party.

“For several days Tanvir Zamani has been appearing regularly on television channels masquerading as a PPP leader and at times even as a spokesperson of the PPP. She is not a PPP leader and such an impression is totally wrong and misplaced,” said Babar in a statement.

He further added: “It is categorically stated that Ms Zamani holds no party office either in Pakistan or in its overseas wing. Any impression of her being a party leader or an office bearer is either based on total ignorance or is mischievously motivated.”

Debunking marriage rumours between Asif Zardari and Tanvir Zamani, Senator Farhatullah Babar laid blame on the media for giving wind to such rumours.

“Rumours of Zardari marrying the lady in question have unfortunately been deliberately aided by the said lady. She has avoided answers to pointed questions and has spoken with a double tongue,” the spokesperson said.

Elaborating further, he said claims that Zardari had remarried were not new and had had been circulating since 2011.

Asif Ali Zardari was at the time the president of Pakistan and officialy denied the rumours.

“Asif Zardari has the unique honour of being the spouse of Benazir Bhutto and son in law of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto. He regards this as an honour for which he has endured vicious attacks and even jeers and ridicule,” added Babar.
