ZA Bhutto’s 37th Death Anniversary today
Islamabad—President of Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarians and former president Asif Ali Zardari on Sunday alleged that power was being transferred to non-elected entities rather public which is against spirit of democracy.
In a statement issued on the occasion of 37th death anniversary of PPP pioneer and former PM Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Asif Ali Zardari said that power comes through ballot box rather from bullet.
He said that it was matter of grave concern that ultimate authority was being transferred from public to non-elected powers in these tough times.
The PPPP President said that Bhutto’s philosophy needs to be followed to overcome the current situation. No one can forget the exploits of hope he has given to the nation. We have to dedicate ourselves to strengthen democracy, he added.
He said ZAB Bhutto instilled in the people that they alone were the fountain of all political power and it is this realization that has not permitted dictatorship to take roots in the country.
“On the eve of 37th martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto I ask the democracy loving people to rededicate themselves to the ideal that all power must flow from the ballot box and not from the bullet”.
“Indeed Shahhed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto stands tall as a beacon of light, hope and inspiration for the people”.
Paying tributes Mr. Asif Ali Zardari said that Shahhed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave the nation the gifts of a unanimous democratic Constitution and a strengthened national defense.
“This twin legacy of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto must be protected at all cost it will be”, he said.
