KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said he will not abandon the struggle initiated by his grandfather, former prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.

“The rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer in the country as feudal landlords are still imposing their decisions on the people,” Bilawal said in his address to a gathering of party activists and supporters on PPP's foundation day in Karachi’s Malir area on Monday.

Only Bhuttos are saviours of Sindh, says Bilawal

Claiming some forces were false propagating that his party had diverted from its core principles, Bilawal said the PPP did not change its path despite countless hurdles.

“History tells us the PPP successfully averted all hurdles, including military dictatorships, which came in its way,” he said.

The PPP chairman said his party stood with the poor people of Pakistan, and would oppose privatisation of public institutions, including the Pakistan Steel Mills.

Bilawal argued he was a custodian of his grandfather’s vision, adding his party’s struggle will continue till elimination of the last terrorist from Pakistan.

Earlier this month during his visit to Thatta and Sujawal as part of the LG poll campaign, Bilawal claimed “the people of Sindh love the Bhuttos and only the Bhuttos are their saviours."


Dipak | 5 years ago | Reply BOY, your Nana ZAB divided Pakistan because he was power hungry. You watch out BOY, there will be another Zia waiting for you. Forget zab and BB. Look what is happening to India's Pappu Boy, Rahul?
Muhammad | 5 years ago | Reply "I haven't heard Bilawal say anything irrational or against common sense till date.. still, regardless of what he says, people go on a frenzy of emotional name-calling against him and his party, without even bothering to ponder over what he is saying and why! why do you think Pakistan is facing what it is facing now? because of this very attitude of people which goes in the favor of the dirty establishment and power quarters who in actual rule Pakistan.... Pakistanis themselves are more responsible for their downfall more than any other!"
