While addressing the office bearers and workers of PPP from Sargodha division Co- Chairman Asif Ali Zardari said that Shaheed Benzir Bhutto was the role model for the women of Pakistan in particular for taking active part in politics. He said that Shaheed faced the ferocious dictatorship of Zia-ul- Haq but did not compromise on democracy and the rights of the poor masses.
He said that Bilawal Bhutto had also entered in the arena of politics with the firm resolve to complete the mission of Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Benazir Bhutto. He took the decsion despite the fact that his grandfather his mother and uncles were murdered and his father spent almost twelve years in jail.
He said that PTI leadership should follow the Narinder Modi model of Gujrat and uplift the province of the KPK that was mired in host of problems.
He reiterated that the Party would continue to support the continuity of democracy in the country and would not do any thing that destabilized the system.
He said that he did not foresee immediate elections in the country adding that PPP in consultation with other political forces would give date for the elections. He stated that the elections should be held for strengthening democracy and the Parliament.
He observed that the quarters who mangled the “political game” had been obliged adding it was the time for the agitating parties to pack up and go to their homes and should not waste more time. “Buubble will bust sooner than later”, he maintained..
He pointed out that it was very expensive proposition to hold a public meeting for one day whereas the agitating Parties had been in sit-ins for the last so many weeks. It raises the questions that need to be answered, he asked.
He advised the people and the PPP workers not to get worried as the agitating parties could not sustain the tempo and they would go home as it was only a matter of some time.
Asif Ali Zardari twice appreciated the hard work of Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo, President Punjab PPP that he was undertaking to organize the Party at all levels.
Asif Ali Zardari said that politics was not a game and the players should not treat it as such.
He said that the building of a hospital should not give right to the builders to do politics because many families had build hospitals in the country. If that should be the criteria then Abdul Sattar Edhi should be leading the politics in the country– no offence to him because he was a well respected gentleman.
He said that Punjab was the heart of the PPP because Shaheed Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto defeated many political stalwarts in Punjab not in Sindh, He expressed his resolve to regain Punjab and make it the hub of the Party.
