October 24, 2020

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leadership on Friday paid rich tribute to party’s former chairperson Begum Nusrat Bhutto on her 9th death anniversary.

Nusrat Bhutto, the former first lady, was the wife of PPP founder, former Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and mother of slain PPP Chairperson Benazir Bhutto. PPP Punjab chapter also arranged a Quran Khwani for Begum Nusrat Bhutto. The PPP Punjab General Secretary Chaudhry Manzur in his address on the occasion said that Nusrat Bhutto was the wife of a prime minister and mother of a PM. He said the way Begum Bhutto led the party at the time Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was executed was remarkable. Syed Asif Hashmi, former Chairman of Evacuee Trust Property Board, who had worked with Bhuttos in the pre-1979 era while talking to The News said, democracy in Pakistan was indebted to her. He said in the martial law days, Nusrat Bhutto led PPP in one of the most critical phases.
