Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was received by a mammoth gathering on her way to Patikka to address an election gathering of the PPP, at the Kohala Bridge which links Kashmir with Pakistan. Rose petals were showered on her convoy. People danced on drumbeat, Jeay Bhutto slogans and party songs. The people on the area were very sentimental to see the daughter of their beloved leader, Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto amongst them.

In her brief address at Kohala, Ms. Aseefa Bhutto Zardari said that Kashmir is like a paradise and is Benazir (unmatched). Our relation with Kashmir goes back three generations. We have got love for Kashmir in our inheritance. The PPP has always worked for the prosperity of Kashmir. The PPP was with Kashmir in the past; it is still with Kashmir today and will stand for Kashmir in future. She asked workers of the PPP to go door to door and tell the people that we have sacrificed our lives for the rights of the people and we are ready to offer this supreme sacrifice for the democratic rights of Kashmir. On 25 July every man, woman and elderly should come out and vote for the PPP candidates. Arrow is your symbol, arrow is prosperity’s symbol, arrow is Kashmir’s symbol and arrow is Benazir’s symbol. She led slogans in the favour of the party, People, Bhuttos, and Kashmir.

Ms. Aseefa Bhutto Zardari was given a warm and zealous reception when she reached Ambore Camp on her way to Patikka. A large number of party workers chanted PPP slogans. Ms. Aseefa Bhutto Zardari raised the slogan “Wazir-e-Azam, Bilawal”.

Mohtarma Faryal Talpur also accompanied Aseefa Bhutto Zardari to the public gathering.

She said that PPP always worked for Kashmir and her father President Asif Ali Zardari developed Kashmir. Now Chairman PPP, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will become the voice of Kashmir and will defend your rights.

Aseefa Bhutto Zardari said that some people are making tall claims after coming here but when Modi attacked Kashmir, these people were nowhere to be seen. He could only say that “what can he do”. It was Shaheed Benazir Bhutto who had said that where Kashmiris will shed their sweat, she will shed her blood. Chairman Bilawal said that if you want peace then there will be peace and if you want war then there will be a war.

She said that we established hospitals in Sindh for heart, kidney, cancer and liver where the treatment is provided free of cost. Sindh government is providing interest free loans to women. The PPP established three medical colleges in Mirpur, Poonch and Muzaffarabad. The PPP established six universities in Azad Kashmir. We built infrastructure in Kashmir. We have an election manifesto for Kashmir which is people-friendly, poor-friendly. We have education, health, clean drinking water projects in this manifesto. The PPP has worked for Kashmir in the past; it is doing the same today and will do the same in the future as well.

Aseefa Bhutto Zardari said that all the promises made by Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari will be fulfilled. She asked the workers to go door to door with the message of the party and with the message of Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. She said that the Kashmiris supported her grandfather Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, her mother Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and her father President Asif Ali Zardari. Now you will support Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and will not only chase out the man who falsely claims to bring change and Modi as well. She asked people to come out on 25 July and vote for arrow which is the symbol of every Kashmiri.

Faisal Karim Kundi’s press conference

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Central Secretary Information, Faisal Karim Kundi addressing a press conference in Islamabad on Wednesday has said that federal minister, Ali Amin Gandapur has used insulting language against PPP leadership but we warn him and all those like him to shut their mouth otherwise we will respond in a way that they will not be able to hide anywhere in Pakistan. The father of the selected Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan, was kicked out of job for corruption. Faisal Karim Kundi said that Ali Amin Gandapur has used vulgar words about Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto which we strongly condemn. If Gandapur has the courage, let the nation know the details of Ikramullah Niazi who was expelled from the job on the charges of corruption. The father of Amin Gandapur was involved in Attock conspiracy case.

Kundi warned Imran Niazi and his people that we will do as they do, we will abuse more than they can think of and all the hired government spokespersons will run away, but those who are left behind we will hold them accountable. PTI and Imran Niazi have forgotten all morals in the hatred of Bhutto. Needless to say, Ali Amin has been charged with murder of his own party’s provincial minister. Imran Niazi talks about Madina state, when the family of Israr Gandapawa will get justice, he asked.

Bilawal Bhutto’s visit to the United States is being wailed by the entire government. The rulers are claiming that Bilawal Bhutto has taken his CV with him. When Imran Khan went to America, did he also take his CV, Kundi asked. The PPP always came to power through public mandate, when PPP came to power, terrorism was on the rise in the country, the state in which Musharraf left the country is not hidden from anyone. Due to the sacrifices of the PPP and security forces, there is peace in Swat today.

Kundi said that the PTI has destroyed KP in its 8 years rule. What is the condition of hospitals in KP? After the rain everyone witnessed the condition of Abbottabad Hospital. He said that Ali Amin Gandapur did not know anything about Kashmir. Everyone knows what is the business of Ali Amin Gandapur. Imran Khan had said that he will become ambassador of Kashmir but he became an advocates of Kulbhushan Jhadav.

Kundi said that the PPP will fight the elections with full force in Kashmir. Government spokespersons say that PPP has 8 candidates in Kashmir. We have 43 candidates in Kashmir. Government spokespersons start telling lies from morning till night. The Minister of Kashmir does not even know whether Kulbhushan Jhadav is in Pakistan or not. They do not know what Kashmir is. There is no precedent for the way the Election Commission is being disrespected in Pakistan and Kashmir. The next prime minister of Kashmir will be a Jiyala, Kundi said.

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardar’s message on World Population Day

KARACHI/ISLAMABAD, July 10, 2021: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that balancing resources and the population is crucial in developing a nation. Population control transforms a country into a vibrant equal-opportunity society with peace, tranquility, and prosperity.

In a statement issued from the Media Cell Bilawal House, on the occasion of World Population Day scheduled to be celebrated worldwide on Sunday, July 11, PPP Chairman felicitated the people of Pakistan on commemorating the World Population Day. The theme of the event this year is, “Rights and Choices are the Answer: Whether baby boom or bust, the solution to shifting fertility rates lies in prioritising all people’s reproductive health and rights.”

Discussing issues relevant to changes in population, Chairman PPP stated, “On one hand, there are countries that witness low fertility rates. In these countries, the older population is more,” he explained. “On the other hand, a large number of developing countries are facing the challenge of high fertility. This means there is a high number of dependent population; adolescents and young people. The result; issues of unemployment, education, and an absence of health services,” he added.

Chairman PPP pointed out that Pakistan is one of the countries with a high level of fertility and low use of contraceptives. This results in population growth. “The Census result of 2017 (though disputed) has shown that Pakistan’s population has grown at a higher level of 2.4% per anum with more than 208 million people,” lamented Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. “One of the major factors is that out of 100 married women of reproductive age, only 34 are using contraception.”

He also said that 18 more women in this category intend to use contraceptives but do not have access to them. “Pakistan People’s Party and its government in the Sindh province have reservations on the Census results,” Chairman PPP declared. “However, as far as balancing the population growth is concerned, we have been providing support on fertility and family planning issues on a country level,” he stated.

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari further said that PPP was committed to initiatives like Recommendations of the Council of Common Interest (CCI) i.e., establishing federal and provincial taskforces; ensuring universal access to family planning and reproductive health services; committing finances; introducing legislation; initiating advocacy and communication; inculcating life skill-based education through curriculum and training; ensuring contraceptive commodities security; and support of opinion makers and ulema.

“It’s disappointing that the selected Prime Minister has been avoiding chairing the Federal Taskforce on Population, despite the Supreme Court decision on suo moto,” he stated, condemning PM Imran Khan’s lack of interest in controlling the population of Pakistan. “The President of Pakistan chaired all four meetings of the Taskforce,” he continued. “Thus, the Council of Common Interest (CCI) recommendations in terms of resources and implementation have not materialized. Out of the allocation of Rs. 10 Billion of the population fund by the Federal Government, only Rs. 1 Billion could be allocated.”

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari also said that PPP and its government in Sindh are leading from the front on initiatives regarding population growth and maternal and child health. The Chief Minister Sindh, too, chairs a multi-sectoral Sindh Taskforce on population. He added that Sindh was the first province to formulate its flagship Costed Implementation Plan (CIP) on Family Planning in 2015 due to the global FP2020 initiative announced at the London Summit, 2012. The CIP is being implemented and transformed into FP2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and FP2030 global agenda.

He further reminded the nation of PPP’s stance to control the population and help women in need by mentioning the Lady Health Worker’s program introduced by Prime Minister Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. This workforce has been refocused on family planning, whereas the health and population departments are functionally integrated after the landmark 18th Constitutional Amendment led by President Asif Ali Zardari.

“Sindh has since then, enhanced its allocations more than 8 folds by its Population Welfare Department,” stated Chairman PPP. “Women’s access to family planning and reproductive health services have been increased in rural and remote areas by more than 1 million users thus, doubling the rate of annual women who use contraceptives. Pakistan Demographic and Health Survey shows a four percent increase in FP in Sindh during five years.”

Appreciating the Progressive laws such as Reproductive Health Rights Act, 2019, Child Marriage Restraint Act 2013, and the Prohibition of Domestic Violence passed by the Sindh Government, Chairman PPP highlighted that a Marital Counseling Bill is underway.

“PPP is committed to the empowerment of women, gender equality, their right to have access to informed choices; and the rights of adolescents and youth,” concluded Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, assuring the nation that PPP will introduce such reforms in Pakistan when elected.

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s address at Chakswari Azad Kashmir

Chakswari/ Mangla/ Islamabad, 9 July 2021: Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressing a huge rally at Mirpur Azad Kashmir said that the people who say that PPP has finished should come to Mirpur and see for themselves the support for the party. He said that Chaudhry Abdul Majid who was with the Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and he was with Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and now is with the third generation. It was a joyous time when he became the Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir. A new generation is entering politics in politics in occupied as well as Azad Kashmir. In Azad Kashmir the new generation is striving for the rights of the people like Qasim Majid. We will play a long inning with this new generation. This election is a test for Qasim Majid. We contest elections to serve the people and not for only to come to power. Qasim Majid will also have to serve the people like his father. The PPP always support the poor. Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto gave lands to the landless. Shaheed Benazir Bhutto served all her life for the people. The BISP programme is a support for the poor women.

The poor had no one to support them when they tried to break the PPP. Anti-people elements have always troubled the people. The PPP always gives relief to the people. We will make a poor-friendly, peoples friendly government. When we will come to power, we will increase salaries and pensions and provide employment to the youth. During recession we started BISP to help the poor women. We increased salaries 120 %, pensions 100% and salaries of soldiers 175% because they were fighting terrorists and India. Only the PPP increases salaries and pensions. It was the PPP tenure under Asif Ali Zardari, the mard-e-hur, when we increased salaries and pension during worst recession in the world. This incapable, puppet Prime Minister is snatching jobs and food from the poor which was promised by the Quaid-e-Awam.

Chairman Bilawal said that the PPP philosophy is that the future of Kashmir will be decided by no one but the Kashmiri themselves. Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto raised the slogan “Hamara Naara sab pe bhari, rai shumari rai shumari. We will have the policy for Kashmir on the orders of Kashmiris. Neither Delhi or Banigala can dictate the Kashmiris. PPP jiyalas will not allow anyone to compromise on Kashmir. We confronted with dictator Zia and dictator Musharraf and Mian Sahib and now we will confront this puppet and incapable.

Chairman PPP said that you know that Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was the founder of nuclear capability and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto was the founder of the missile technology in Pakistan but the puppet is conspiring against our nuclear capability. Will you allow to compromise on Kashmir and nuclear capability? The incapable and puppet Prime Minister is trying to give relief to the Indian spy, Kulbhushan Jhadav. He wanted to give Kulbhushan NRO in the darkness of the night. When we exposed the puppet then he is bringing this NRO to Kulbhushan to the National Assembly. The PPP will not give this NRO to Kulbhushan. Imran Khan took u-turn on Indian attack on Kashmiras he is also the commerce minister and wanted to trade with India after the attack on Kashmir. His policy is confused and he should not be the Prime Minister and we do not need a confused Prime Minister in Islamabad or Azad Kashmir. Kashmir needs a jiyala Prime Minister. You have the responsibility to protect Kashmir from this puppet government and there is only one way and that is Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s way, Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir’s way and PPP’s way and a Jiyala will be elected Prime Minister of Azad Kashmir.

The “change” is confused as well as our friends who earlier wanted to chase out this puppet are also confused. PML-N has several narratives. They are also confused. It is better for this confusion to go. You cannot vote for confusion. Neither we pray for Modi and nor we invite him on our weddings. We are with Kashmiris. Chairman Bilawal said that Maryam Nawaz is also on an election campaign of her party and you will treat her with respect. No one will use foul language for Maryam Sharif. We will oppose them on political issues. You will follow our traditions. I had raised voice for Maryam in the NA when her own party did not speak for her. We do not target women in politics. It is not PPP’s tradition and conduct. PTI has sent ministers and one of them was caught distributing money. They do not know that Kashmiris are not sellable commodity. The people who did not succumbed to India in 70 years cannot bow down before money. On 25 you will stamp on the arrow. When Qasim Majeed will become member will complete the bridge to Islamabad. You will win on 25 July and we will celebrate together. I will once again celebrate Eid in Muzaffarabad and Bagh. You will have to go door to door with the PPP’s message and to every woman because they know the difficulties due to the price hike. The only party for youth is the PPP, for elderly is the PPP, for women is for PPP. This coward, puppet and incapable will be chased out by you and you will support me as you had supported Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. The arrow is the symbol of success.

Earlier a huge gathering of the workers of the party welcomed Chairman Bilawal Zardari on his arrival at Mangla Bridge and Quaid-e-Azam chowk, Mirpur Azad Kashmir. The gathering raised slogans and showered rose petal on his vehicle. At the Quaid-e-Azam chowk Chairman Bilawal addressed briefly and said said that we did not have any plan to address at this place but now you have proved that on 25th July, the PPP and Jiyalas are going to win. You have to continue this struggle. The Jiyalas have to protect the Kashmiri people from the destruction of this “change”. The real face of this “change” is this historic price hike, historic Poverty and historic unemployment. Jiyalas will not let Kashmir people suffer due to this change. Jiyalas will not allow a government of “change”. Chairman Bilawal said that the one who is contesting against us is a “lota” sycophant and the Jiyalas will hold him accountable.

Certified liars on a vilification campaign against Former President Zardari

Islamabad, 8 July 2021: Former Deputy Chairman Senate, Senator Saleem Mandviwala has said that the only source of livelihood for some people is to run a campaign to discredit Asif Ali Zardari. The fabricators of the fake stories are certified forgers. These are the same forgers who had falsely claimed to have recovered Rs. 70 crore and 10 Kg gold from the Governor’s House at the time of President Asif Ali Zardari’s arrest from the Governor’s House in Lahore in 1996 and that too from a small brief case. Hence, the claim of getting Rs 33 billion by liars in a reference against Asif Ali Zardari is a complete lie and a tactic of media trial.

Senator Saleem Mandviwala said that President Asif Ali Zardari has been a target of anti-democratic forces for the last 33 years. They had even fabricated a story about a bomb being attached to someone’ leg and a false drug case was also initiated against him but President Asif Ali Zardari faced these false allegations in the courts and was honourably acquitted.

Senator Mandviwala said that the fact is that President Asif Ali Zardari has been a target of Bhutto’s enemies since 1988. He said that those who made false allegations against Asif Ali Zardari were humiliated in the past and will face humiliation in the future as that is the fate of these elements.

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s speech at Haveli, Azad Kashmir

Haveli/Islamabad, 8 July 2021: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressed a huge public gathering at Haveli in connection with the Azad Kashmir election campaign of his party. He said that this is the place where Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had addressed a huge public gathering in 1974. At that time the soldier of the Party Mumtaz Rathore was with him and then he proved to be a loyal brother of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. Today Faisal Rathore is here to continue his father’s struggle with the PPP.

Chairman Bilawal said that no one can finish the PPP. The Quaid-e-Awam fought for the Kashmir cause at every front. We have a relation going back three generations. He always raised voice for the people’s rights. He was the one who had said that we will fight for Kashmir for a thousand years. He was the chairman of OIC. He gave Pakistan nuclear capability. When he used to gve a call for strike everything on both sides of the border used to close down. His daughter, Mohtarma Benazir had said that where the Kashmiris will shed their sweat we will shed our blood. The Kashmiri people always supported her. She provided employment for men and women.

It is unfortunate that our current prime minister is a puppet, selected and incapable. He responded to the historic attack on Kashmir by saying “What can I do?”. If Quaid-e-Awam was there today he would have gone to the United States with the Kashmir case. The response of the puppet was to rename the Kashmir Highway as Srinagar Highway and changing his own map with his own pen. Imran Khan did not fulfil the aspirations of Kashmiri people. We all have one slogan that “no compromise is accepted on Kashmir. We do not take dictation from Delhi or Islamabad, rather from you. Quaid-e-Awam slogan was “Hamara Naara Sab pe Bhari, Rai Shumari, Rai Shumari”. We do not want a prime minister who prays for Modi’s success in elections nor a prime minister who invites Modi to wedding celebrations. This PM Khan was a polling agent of Gen. Musharraf and Modi. The PPP is the only party which cannot compromise on Kashmir as it was founded on the issue of Kashmir. We believe in the United Nations’ resolutions.

Chairman PPP said that the real face of Imran Khan’s change is historic poverty, price hike and unemployment. The PPP also increased salaries by 120 percent, pensions by 100 percent and for the soldiers fighting terrorism by 175 percent. On 25th July the Jiyala Prime Minister will be elected and his first measure will be to increase salaries and pensions. The PPP introduced BISP during the worst recession in the world. This Ehsas programme is nothing but the BISP. PM Khan has also stolen our foreign policy. Imran is lying by saying that he will not provide air bases to the United States because this decision of not providing air bases was taken by the parliament during the PPP government. Bhutto’s slogan was “Maang Raha Hai Har Insan, Roti Kapra aur Makan” but this puppet is snatching all these things from the poor people. This country will not progress until we do not look after our growers, labourers and youth. The Jiyalas have already defeated the puppet along with other parties and Faisal Rathore has won from this constituency. Chairman Bilawal said that Rathore will fulfil the PPP project to build an expressway from Islamabad to Kashmir. This will be a gift to you from the PPP.

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that he is in the field to complete the mission of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. The Jiyalas have to chase out not only the puppet from Kashmir but other parties as well. I just ask the other party not to become a cat who runs away but a lion who faces the adversaries. He said that the PPP has always sided with the people and the people will vote for the PPP on 25 July.
