ISLAMABAD: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Thursday paid a rich tribute to Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto on her 71st birth anniversary, describing her as a leader who embodied vision, values, and progress.

He also pledged to continue her struggle against injustice and exploitation, aiming for an egalitarian and welfare state.

The PPP chairman said that June 21 marks a significant day of reflection for the nation. “On this occasion, I honour my mother, a beacon of hope, resilience, and inspiration.

Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto propelled Pakistan forward in scientific, economic, and industrial fields, tirelessly working for tolerance, unity, civil liberties, and democracy.

She believed in equal opportunities, envisioning a Pakistan where prosperity was shared, and no one was left behind,” he said.

On this special day, we celebrate your life and reaffirm our dedication to your values. May we continuously draw inspiration from your courage and unwavering dedication to Pakistan,” he said.
