Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari presented on Sunday his party’s demands to integrate national unity in the country, as he addressed the ‘Salam Shuhda Rally’, in remembrance of the victims of a 2007 terrorist attack.

The PPP leader demanded of the government that the parliamentary national security committee be reconstituted, and called for implementation of former president Asif Zardari’s resolutions on the China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). He also urged for an immediate appointment of full-time a foreign minister in the country.

“If these demands are not met, I will announce long march against the government on December 27 in Garkhi Khuda Bakhsh,” Bilawal said.

Bilawal said Indian premier Narendra Modi was the butcher of Gujarat, who was now involved in state oppression against the people in occupied Kashmir.

Earlier, he vowed to free the masses from the shackles of ‘Takht-e-Raiwind’ — a veiled reference to the ruling Sharif family.

“Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is taking Pakistan towards devastation. I have changed Sindh and will bring a change to Punjab as well with the help of masses,” Bilawal said.

Over 125 people were killed in two explosions on October 18, 2007 which targeted a PPP rally to welcome their leader Benazir Bhutto. Benazir — the former prime minister of Pakistan, was killed in December the same year in a terrorist attack in Rawalpindi.

PPP gears up for ‘historic’ rally

Bilawal lead the rally, which culminated at Karsaz.

Former prime ministers Yousaf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervez Ashraf, Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, provincial minister Manzoor Wassan and other party leaders are accompanying the PPP leader.
