Rallies held across country on PPP Foundation Day
Lahore—Pakistan People’s Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Wednesday warned of launching a protest movement against government if his demands are not met. Addressing a rally at Bilawal House in connection with party’s foundation day on Wednesday he said, “We will bring down the dictatorship of Takht-e-Lahore, if our demands are not met till December 27.” He, however, said the PPP would use democratic methods like his mother Benazir Bhutto did to get her demands met.
The PPP chairman said country’s justice system condemns Zulfikar Ali Bhutto to death and lets the assassins of Benaizr Bhutto free while at the same time it seems to provide amnesty to the prime minister’s royal family. He said Yousuf Raza Gilani was disqualified for not writing a letter but country’s institutions were silent over Panama Papers, which he said was the biggest scandal in the world. The PPP leader said he brought change in Sindh and would introduce the change across the country with the support of people. Bilawal Bhutto dedicated 49th foundation of the party to late Jahangir Badar, a leader of the organisation who passed away earlier this month on 14th. He said that Lahore, which is the heart of the country was chosen to lead celebrations of 49th foundation day of PPP. The people of Lahore warmly welcomed his mother Benazir Bhutto in 1986. He branded Lahore as party’s birth place. He said that district-level reorganisation of the political party was underway and that every possible step would be taken to bring democratic reforms.
A fresh charter and an agenda would be introduced which would be a progressive platform for the people of the country, he added. The week-long countrywide celebrations of Pakistan People’s Party 49th Foundation Day began on Wednesday.
Several rallies were conducted across the country by supporters of the party, however, the leading celebratory ceremony has been convened in Lahore and for the purpose leaders of the party reached here on Tuesday for at least five days.
