Benazir’s death anniversary: Ruling party is using National Action Plan to victimize opponents: Bilawal

GARHI KHUDA BAKSH: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said on Sunday that the ruling party is using National Action Plan (NAP) to victimize opponents instead of curbing terrorism and militancy.

This is not that real action plan all political parties had agreed upon, instead, this is N-League’s action plan which is being used to target political opponents, he alleged while addressing the 8th death anniversary of slain PPP chairperson Benazir Bhutto at Garhi Khuda Bux Bhutto. The death anniversary was observed with great reverence and commitment to make the country democratic and save Constitution. Thousands of party leaders, workers and supporters including PPP MNAs, MPAs and ministers attended the public gathering. They also visited the graves of Bhutto family martyrs and offered prayers.

“This is not the NAP agreed to by all parties, this is the N-league action plan, whose target is political opponents.”

He questioned: The public asks you when will targeting of provinces under NAP end. Which major terrorist or abettor has been nabbed under NAP? Bilawal said politics of revenge has resurfaced, with allegations of terrorism being hurled at the PPP once again. He said only the PPP had sacrificed lives to fight terror and his party had been a victim of target killing for years. He said that they would raise voice against PML-N policies in parliament.

Bilawal donated blood on the eve of eighth death anniversary of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto, the former prime minister of Pakistan.

Bilawal donated blood in Naudero and later arrived in Garhi Khuda Bux Bhutto, where he addressed a large number of party leaders, workers and supporters. PPP workers also donated blood across the country. The blood donations will be given to the soldiers of the armed forces who injured in war against terrorism, and patient welfare societies.

A large number of PPP workers across from the country participated in the death anniversary of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. Sindh Chief Minister Syed Qaim Ali Shah also participated in the ceremony. The PPP leaders vowed to protect constitution and democracy and restore peace.

Speaking on the occasion, Chief Minister Sindh Syed Qaim Ali Shah that his government had restored peace in Sindh, particularly in Karachi but the federal government was bypassing the Sindh government over Rangers power issue, which is unconstitutional act.

Shah said one man cannot overrule the Sindh Assembly resolution pertaining to Rangers powers as the Constitution empowers the Sindh Assembly. He said that PPP government is committed to restore peace and serve masses. He said that they wanted democracy and parliamentary system, adding Sindh is now peaceful. The chief minister said his government had cooperated with the army chief and the prime minister and we want supremacy of the Constitution.

He paid glowing tribute to Shaheed Benazir Bhutto for sacrificing her life for the country and nation, and vowed to safeguard the democracy and Constitution.
