Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that an incompetent and incapable puppet ruler has been imposed on the people

LARKANO, April 4: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that an incompetent and incapable puppet ruler has been imposed on the people, adding that the PTI government has caused historic damage to the economy.

The PPP Chairman stated this while addressing a prayer gathering on the occasion of 42nd martyrdom anniversary of former Prime Minister Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto at Naudero House on Sunday evening.

He said that Imran Khan had promised to create ten million jobs and 5 million houses and questioned somebody tell him a district where Imran Khan has given jobs to people?

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pointed out that the economic situation was not so bad even after we lost half of Pakistan. From independence until the imposition of Imran Khan, Pakistan was never so ruined in economic sector but now our country’s growth rate has turned negative and even far behind Bangladesh and Afghanistan’s, he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that PPP has given autonomy to the provinces, made the people the owners of its resources. But the PTI’s Federal government is not giving the due share to Sindh and other provinces but they are also taunting us why your province is poor. “How will development be possible when provinces are not given their due,” he added.
He also said that the way Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto took away the snatched the rights of the poor from usurpers and gave back them has to be adopted again for the poor to have their rights again. As Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto explained how the usurped rights are snatched back in a democratic way, we have to adopt the same method.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari highlighted the political strategy. There are ways, one model of parliamentary struggle is used to retrieve the rights back while the other model is the Nine-Star (Nau Sitara) model of 1970’s established dictatorship, which was also adopted by Imran Khan. However, true political and economic freedoms can be achieved by using the ideology of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

He said that all of you are witnesses that we organized public meetings, train marches, rallies and challenged the government. “We were told to leave the parliament, do not participate in the by-elections, boycott the Senate elections but we did not do that and all this happened because of the ideological principles of the PPP,” he said adding that the PTI would have a majority in the Senate today, if our strategy was not applied.

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari further said that the PPP proved its strategy right by defeating the government in the Senate and even in the National Assembly. PPP took this responsibility and then told its allies and the whole country that you can defeat Imran Khan and his facilitators by adopting a democratic attitude and democratic style.

PPP Chairman said that PTIMF candidate, who was in fact candidate of all forces was defeated defeated through National Assembly vote. After this victory, the opposition was in a very good position and there was the a planned long march against Imran Khan government. “We could have overthrown the puppet government in Punjab and PTI government could have run away upon reaching Islamabad leading the long march, for which PPP had made huge preparations.

Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari expressed surprise that it was beyond his comprehension that when everything was ready, the opposition party started opposing the opposition and forgot about Imran Khan but we are committed to offer stiff opposition to the government as a principled democratic Party.

Ms Marri said in her statement that Pakistan Peoples Party and ANP will raise the issue related calling upon a secret meeting of certain parties of the opposition alliance in the upcoming PDM meeting. Shazia Marri said that we will ask from PDM chief Moulana Fazul Ur Rehman that why opposition alliance is being used against the opposition parties and at whose behest a conspiracy was also hatched against the Long March by demanding resignations from assemblies as to save the PTI government.

She said that PML(N) leader Rana Sanaullah should apologize to PPP over unopposed victory of their senator with the support of PTI in Punjab instead of asking PPP for apology. She concluded that PML(N) leadership should also apologize to PPP over the defeat of PDM’s candidate Farhatullah Babar due to their support to PTI candidate.

Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto Zardari’s message on Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto martyrdom anniversary

KARACHI/ISLAMABAD, April 3: Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that Pakistan would have been a welfare state with a vibrant economy and society, seen as role-model Muslim country in the world, had the Prime Minister Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto not been hanged.
Paying glowing tributes to Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the PPP Chairman said those who martyred Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in fact murdered the dreams of our founding fathers and laid to rest the future of Pakistani generations.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was an iconic leader who had laid the foundations for equitable economic, political and democratic infrastructure. “Things we take for granted today, such as universal sufferage, constitutional guarantees of equality under the constitution, the right to freedom of movement, religion, political affiliation, and unionization were codified under the unanimously adopted constitution of 1973. The passing of the 1973 constitution remains till today the greatest democratic achievement of this country.” he added.
He said that the policies of Bhutto Shaheed had led to the establishing of huge industrial, economic and commercial ventures, that had revolutionized the country by redistributing wealth from the hands of the few to the many. It was unfortunate that the dictator Zia overthrew his legitimately elected government and drifted Pakistan into a quagmire of intolerance, extremism and poverty.
“Dictators and their selected unguided missiles imposed on this nation subsequently destroyed the democratic, societal, and economic fabric, decimating all gains of transferring power to the people by concentrating it back into the hands of a few. We need to turn back to the teachings and vision of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and course correct the country onto the path of true democracy once again,” he added.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari pledged that his Party would carry on the mission of its founder Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, continuing the struggle for a strong, democratic, egalitarian and progressive Pakistan.

Islamabad March 28, 2021: The Pakistan People’s Party has condemned the crack down on the peaceful protestors of Jani Khel in Bannu, the arrest of political workers and the foiling by using force of their bid to travel to Islamabad to register their protest against the kidnap and kill of four youth over a week ago.

Nayyer Bukhari asked the authorities to stop using violence against the marchers, release those arrested and bring to justice the culprits of the kidnap and kill of the four youth.

The fascist acts of the selected regime are most condemnable, he said.

Disappointment over SC verdict in DHA Quetta case

Islamabad March 28, 2021: Former Senator and Secretary General of Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarians Farhatullah Babar today expressed disappointment over the Supreme Court verdict that allowed DHA Quetta to continue acquiring land for its schemes not only in Quetta but anywhere in Balochistan.

The Supreme Court on Saturday overturned the verdict of Balochistan High Court in December last declaring some clauses of DHA Act 2015 as violating the Constitution. The BHC also restrained the army run Housing Authority from exercising powers under those clauses. Earlier on March 16 the Supreme Court had held in abeyance the BHC verdict in the case.

In a statement today Farhatullah Babar said that overturning of BHC verdict amounted to giving a free hand to DHA Quetta to acquire land anywhere in the province as Clause 6-b authorized the Executive Board to do so.

The Executive Board of the DHA Quetta under clause 5-c consisted of the Commander Southern Command Quetta, Administrator of the Authority who under the Act must be a serving or retired Brigadier, two members nominated by Commander Southern Command in his discretion and Secretary of Authority also serving or retired army officer.

With such composition of the executive board and vast powers vested in it the militarization of land acquisition process is disturbing and sends wrong signals.

The clauses declared unconstitutional by BHC also included Claus 6-b that permitted the Authority to acquire land anywhere in the province, he said.

He said that the SC may have barred the DHA Quetta from stepping out of ‘specified areas’ but there was no satisfaction to be drawn from it.

Such restraint is of little value when the Executive Board had unlimited powers to acquire land anywhere in the province and declare it as ‘specified areas’, he said.

The restraint on exercise of powers outside the acquired lands might sound pleasing but it is rendered meaningless when the Authority has unlimited powers to acquire land, he said. Clause 3 (q) of the Act defines “Specified areas” all land purchased or acquired by, or leased to the Authority not only in Quetta but anywhere in Balochistan, he said.

Farhatullah Babar also recalled that a private Housing Scheme had moved petition in BHC as aggrieved party against the DHA Quetta. The petitioner private housing society later sought to withdraw the petition which was disallowed. Farhatullah Babar said that an investigation into it might also shed light on the operations of the housing authority.

Farhatullah Babar said that he respected the Supreme Court and its verdict has to be implemented.

However the verdict had also made it imperative for the Parliament to undertake a thorough reappraisal of the functioning of all DHAs, how they acquired lands, how they are managed, how plots are distributed, their mushroom growth and how they were run by serving army officers while claiming status of a private sector enterprise.

The Defence Ministry and state institutions should also pause and ponder over the consequences of unbridled militarization of state, society and lands he said.
