Zardari says warm welcome to Bilawal proves Punjab belongs to PPP
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has expressed his gratitude to the people of central Punjab for giving rapturous welcome to chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
The former president said that the warm welcome extended to Bilawal proves that Punjab belongs to PPP and will remain so forever, and the anti-Bhutto elements are perplexed and dejected by this ecstatic welcome.
“Everyone who loves Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto is with the PPP and Bilawal. They are loyal to Bhuttos,” he said.
He instructed party workers to remain active and deliver the message and manifesto of Bilawal to the people.
He said the restoration of constitution to its original form and provincial autonomy was the mission of Benazir Bhutto which was fulfilled by the PPP government, and now their mission is to eliminate poverty, unemployment and extremism from the country.
He said that PPP has always served the marginal stratum of society and Benazir Income Support Program (BISP) has reduced the problems of poor women.
He said that Punjab has once again raised slogans of Bhutto and this is the message of victory for party workers. He said that PPP’s opposition can clearly see their defeat written on the wall.
Zardari said that a progressive and prosperous Pakistan was the dream of Benazir Bhutto and the party will continue striving to achieve this goal.
He strongly condemning the firing incident on PPP candidate Ali Musa Gillani in Multan and demanded the immediate arrest of the culprits. He asked the caretaker government and the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to take notice of the incident and take action against those responsible.
