Bilawal Bhutto addresses electioneering public rally in Nikayal,
MIRPUR [AJK], (Parliament Times) : PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said that the 5th July 1977 was a black day in Pakistani’s history when the first directly elected government was toppled in a coup by the dictator General Zia-ul-Haq.
“Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was Quaid-e-Awam; he was the chairman of the Islamic Summit, he was the founder of nuclear capability of Pakistan and was the leader who gave lands to the landless poor growers, gave rights to the laborers and worked for the poor people of Pakistan.
He was addressing a mass public rally held in Nikayal town of Kotli district of Mirpur AJK division on Monday in connection with electioneering of his party in scheduled july 25 AJK general elections/.
BBZ had reached Nakyal, Azad Kashmir in connection with the PPP election campaign in Azad Kashmir on Monday and addressed a huge and charged crowd.
Bilawal continued that dictator thought that they will finish the ideology of Bhutto by physically eliminating him. After Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto resisted two dictators to complete the incomplete mission of her father. Then the same people martyred Benazir Bhutto thinking that they could finish the ideology of Bhuttos and capture the whole system but they did not know that the leaders of the people live in the hearts and minds of the people.
They did not know that the jiyalas of the PPP are steadfast on the Bhuttos’ ideology. The jiyalas are standing firm and are not ready to compromise on Kashmir and will continue the struggle for the people’s rights. The coward rulers and all the puppet parties are afraid of these jiyalas. The PPP is the only party supported by the people of Kashmir and Pakistan.
Chairman Bilawal said that the President PPP Azad Kashmir, Latif Akbar has survived two attacks by the cowards. The Muslim Conference attacked him and then the ones who claim that votes should be respected attacked him. Let me tell them that we are well able to defend and the jiyalas are there to defend their leaders but we will not let you do such politics. We will compete with Muslim Conference, puppet in Azad Kashmir and the puppet in Islamabad and will defeat all of them in elections. We are the jiyalas who confronted Zia, Musharraf, terrorists and Modi.
We do not invite Modi to our wedding celebrations; do not pray for Modi’s success in elections. We are the jiyalas who learnt the lesson that if need be we will fight a thousand years for Kashmir and will shed our blood where the Kashmiris shed their sweat. We had the leader whose calls for strike were observed by the Kashmiris in the occupied Kashmir as well as the Azad Kashmir. This coward puppet asked “What can I do?” in the national assembly when Modi launched a historic attack on Kashmir. The Kashmiri people cannot tolerate this cowardice. The Kashmiris will send a message to the world on 25 July that they do not want any kind of puppet government but a real people’s government that is of the PPP.
We can defeat India by bringing more economic prosperity in Azad Kashmir than in Occupied Kashmir. We in the past brought prosperity to the people during our tenure in the government. We increased the salaries of government employees and pensions of the retired elderly people. We will complete the mission of our leaders Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. Chairman Bilawal said that his politics will be the politics of truth not like the puppet who promised the sun, moon and stars but made millions unemployed and without their abodes.
He said that there is a puppet as ruler now and there were also puppet rulers in the past as well. The only PPP believes in the power of the people. Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto raised slogan “Hamara Naara Sab Pe Bhari, Rai Shumari Rai Shumari”. You will decide for yourself as Kashmiris because no puppet can decide in your favour. The relations between the Kashmiris and the PPP go back three generations. The people in the other parties are the same people who were disloyal to the mission of Bhuttos and had left the party. Chairman Bilawal said that he is ready to work with everyone who had ever raised slogan of Jeay Bhutto ever. He offered them to forget the past and prepare for the future.
The PPP is the only party which can overcome this economic crisis and can negotiate with China as well as the United States. The victory belongs to the PPP. He asserted that the next government in Azad Jammu Kashmir will be of the PPP.
