LAHORE: Murder of PPP leader Babar Sohail Butt and the attack on Shaukat Basra are a part of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s plan to convert Lahore into a no-go area, said Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
After conducting interviews for candidates of PPP Lahore district’s posts at the Bilawal House in Lahore on Tuesday, the PPP chairman said that his party will win the next general elections from Lahore and central Punjab.
Will become country's prime minister in 2018, says Bilawal
He said that Lahore enjoys a special status in the PPP, as the party saw its successful take-off from the historic city and lauded the sacrifices of the party workers from Lahore.
Bilawal said that the new party office-bearers were being elected after a consultative process involving all cadres of the party.
He said, “From Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto to Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto, the PPP leadership has always given importance to Jiyalas and this tradition is here to stay.”
The PPP chairman also urged the youth of Punjab to rise up and play their role in throwing away Takht-e-Jati Umra (Prime Minister’s Residence) and pave way for a proud Pakistan.
The meeting was also attended by former prime minister Raja Pervez Ashraf, Chaudhry Manzoor Ahmed, PPP Punjab President Qamar Zaman Kaira, Nadeem Afzal Chan and Mustafa Nawaz.
