LARKANA – The Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is observing the 39th death anniversary of party founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto in Larkana on Wednesday.

Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that late Bhutto was the first person to stand for democracy in the country while addressing a rally in Garhi Khuda Buksh on the 39th death anniversary of party founder and former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.

Bilawal said that Simla agreement, getting consensus on the constitution was an achievement of late Bhutto.

“Today every Pakistani has a right to vote, this is a gift of late Bhutto to the people of Pakistan,” he said. “The political system existing today is because of the martyrs of PPP, we won’t let this system be wrapped up.”

He said that the people of Pakistan have the choice whether to take the legacy of Zia-ul-Haq or Bhutto.

“There is also a third option, the hypocrite with a U-turn. The brother of Taliban,” he said while taking a jibe at the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan.

He said that we won’t let the B team of religious extremists come into power.

Earlier, PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari said that the former prime minister Nawaz Sharif won ‘RO Elections’.

He alleged that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader has always disrupted the PPP governments with the support of the establishment.

The former president said that no matter what happens, we (PPP) will remain at war with PML-N.

“I won’t even let you have your own Punjab chief minister in the next polls,” says Zardari. “We will make government in alliance with other parties.”

He alleged that the government spent millions to win a seat from Lahore.

Caravans of Bhutto supporters have reached Larkana from across the country ahead of the party founder’s death anniversary.

The PPP has set up two camps, one in Larkana and the other in Garhi Khuda Baksh where Bhutto is buried, in order to facilitate party workers.

Senior party leaders; including Opposition leader Khurshid Shah, Sherry Rehman, Qamar Zaman Kaira are present in the rally ground.
