PPP will protect democracy: Bilawal

- December 27, 2012 - Updated 1738 PKT - From Web Edition

GARHI KHUDA BAKHSH: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari addressed the rally here on the fifth death anniversary of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto.


The PPP Chairman said his party would not abandon Pakistan nor would it allow a dictator to steal the rights of people or be deterred by terrorists.


Bilawal said there were two powers in the country; those on the right path and those on the path of lies.


He said the PPP had taken the difficult path of democracy and were taught to walk on this path by Benazir Bhutto. “We have brought democracy and we will be ones to protect it”.


Bilawal added that the 1973 constitution had been restored and Pakistan would prosper under the leadership of President Asif Ali Zardari. The PPP Chairman mentioned several of the development projects launched during the tenure of the PPP government in his address.


"The work of the PPP would not be complete until everyone was provided Roti Kaapra, Makan (Food,Clothes and Homes)".


Speaking on Pakistan’s economy, Bilawal said the economic policies of the PPP were brilliant unfortunately this was a time of global recession. He added that despite facing several challenges such as terrorism, the economy of Pakistan was still standing on its own two feet. “Positive thinking is essential for Pakistan,” he said.


Bilawal further said that the PPP was a wall in the way of terrorists. He spoke on the PPP’s support for an independent judiciary but said that the role of the judiciary was to provide justice not to govern.


Bilawal said that the PPP was aware of the crisis in Balochistan and the government had passed laws which would benefit the province.


He reiterated that the PPP wanted to work with all political parties and the policy of reconciliation was their biggest weapon. “There are some who only indulge in the politics of hate and think they can use this to gain power. But they don’t know that politics is the name of love not hate”.


Bilawal Bhutto Zardari paid a tribute to his assassinated grandfather, mother and other PPP workers stating that the martyrs of democracy lived in his heart.


Referring to Malala Yousafzai, Bilawal said that the militant mindset which attacked her needed to know that there were thousands of Malala’s in waiting.

We cannot see the picrute behind the large door although it is true that Quaid's picrute are hanged everywhere [almost every prominent place]. My mother confirmed me since she visited Aiwan-e-Sadar many times in past 16 months. I will ask her to take the picrutes next time. But at the moment, Farhat Ullah Babar should have posted a photograph along with the official press release for media and rest of the nation.

Bilawal should tell his manifesto how he can help Pakistan in reviving its economy, security and basic rights for people how he'll bring change and success to Pakistan He is trained to raise hollow slogans alike his peers

You must be joking

"Ham Pakistan ko kabhi nahi chorenge" Of course u will not leave Pakistan because NOT that u love Pakistan but you plan to "khoon choos" of people of Pakistan and also in no other country u will be able to cheat people and also u will not be able to get easy corruption money in any other country.

He is absolutely right. They will protect democracy - their version of democracy - that ensures plundering money and filling their accounts.
