Meanwhile, Kashmir Council Member Younas Mir claimed that more than thirty thousand party workers from AJK will attend the Parade Ground rally. Mir believes that the party’s survival of three dictatorial regimes proves that the Bhutto philosophy is revered from Karachi to Kashmir.
Mir also stated that the impressive number of workers from AJK will be joined by party leaders, district presidents and Peoples Youth Organisation (PYO) office bearers at the rally. Moreover, this rally will set the stage for Bilawal Bhutto to lead the party in the upcoming elections.

The party workers carried a 1000 foot long, 14 foot wide party flag that consists of both national and AJK flags.
President AJK PPP Latif Akbar said, “The longest flag is a gift from the people of AJK to the Chairman Bilawal Bhutto on the 50th foundation day of party.” He added that after reaching Faizabad, party workers from AJK will carry the longest party flag to Parade Ground.
Mir further stated that the PPP in AJK is united under the leadership of Akbar and the longest party flag is a symbol of strong alliance. He says people from Karachi to Kashmir are united under this flag, which is now the identity of a democratic Pakistan.
