PPP will not allow anyone to undermine parliament– Zardari

On 18th October 2007, Benazir Bhutto’s caravan, which included thousands of PPP workers and political leaders, was jolted with twin bomb blasts around midnight. More than 150 workers of the party were killed whilst scores of others were injured. 8 years on, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari paid tribute to the martyrs of the Karsaz blast and thanked them for protecting his mother.

“Terrorists wanted to push the country into stone age by killing Benazir Bhutto and rest of party leadership, yet they failed in their evil motive,” said Bilawal Bhutto.

Former President of Pakistan and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari also spoke on the occasion and warned everyone that time and again, dictatorship reared its ‘ugly head’ in different forms and manifestations. Stating that one must always be alert as to the dictatorial mindset, Zardari said:-

“A subtle and little noticed form of threat to democracy is when institutions and individuals exceed their constitutional authority and trespass into the domain of other constitutional institutions,” he said.

According to Zardari, the party will continue its mission to root out dictatorship and extremism in all its forms and manifestations. Asif Zardari was also of the view that the parliament was a shield against the menace of dictatorship.

“It must be strengthened, not undermined. The PPP will not allow anyone to undermine parliament. Let there be no doubt or mistake about it,” he said.

Aseefa Bhutto Zardari, daughter of Benazir Bhutto, also tweeted a couple of messages in which she upheld the sacrifices of party workers and thanked them for their contributions.
