Many brand-new figures got the positions near Zardari. Safdar and Naheed despite the fact that they have already been held accountable for the loss of life of Ms. Bhutto, which both of these rejected and asked Zardari to contradict. But there is no response or contradiction from Zardari or his recently appointed aides.
