Chairman PPP Bilawal Bhutto strongly condemned the attacks on media and killing of journalists in Karachi
PPP chairman sympathized and condoled with the members of bereaved families and prayed to Almighty Allah to rest their departed souls in eternal peace and grant courage and fortitude to their family members to bear this loss for equanimity.
Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has spent a busy day on Wednesday 09 September 2015 at Bilawal House, Lahore, and held a series of meetings with the notables, sitting and former MNAs and MPAs from south Punjab.
While addressing the participants, Bilawal Bhutto said he would start holding public meetings after Eidul Azha. “We all will fight together and overcome the party issues. We will take the PPP to new heights by organising it in each town and village,” the chairman vowed and said the first public meeting will be held in Rahim Yar Khan.
When retired Maj Imtiaz, who was with Benazir Bhutto in the vehicle at the time of attack in Rawalpindi (in 2007), was asked to speak in the meeting, he started crying and could not control his emotions. Bilawal Bhutto went to his seat and hugged him.
Faryal Talpur, Bakhtawar Zardari, Raja Pervaiz Ashraf, Sherry Rehman, Makhdoom Ahmad Mahmood, Shaukat Basra, Nadeem Afzal Chan, Hina Rabbani Khar, Haider Zaman Qureshi, Natasha Doultana, Mustafa Mahmood, Ghulam Rasool Koreja, Qazi Ahmed Saeed, Ali Akbar Mahmood, Raees Ibrahim Khalil, Khalida Mohsin, Ali Qureshi and Sardar Shahabuddin Khan were also present in the meeting.
Former prime minister Raja Pervaiz Ashraf talked about the ‘media trial’ of the PPP leaders saying those raising slogans against corruption and implicating PPP leaders should better present themselves for accountability.
The former premier said that corruption cases against the PPP leaders had been pending for years. “Why they are not decided without delay,” he asked.
Mr Ashraf also recommended Bilawal Bhutto to set up an accountability commission in the party for internal accountability of the leaders. “Appoint some four to six people of integrity for investigation of the alleged corruption charges (on the party men),” he proposed.
Sherry Rehman said: “We never compromised on rights of people and fought against terrorism. Why is the PPP facing terror-finance cases? The PPP is a liberal party and will not leave its space among the masses,” she said.
