Ahead of 11-party opposition alliance Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) in Larkana on the occasion of Benazir Bhutto’s 13th death anniversary, PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari paid a glowing tribute to Mohtarma Benazir.

While addressing the PDM Larkana Rally on Sunday, Bilawal said that they needed the intelligence of her mother in the country’s politics.

“Today we have to vow to fulfill Benazir Bhutto’s promise and save Pakistan,” he said.

Bilawal added, “She was not afraid of death as she knew that her coward attackers were preparing to assassinate her, but she returned despite all threats for the love she had for people of Pakistan.”

He said due to the government’s “anti-people” policies, millions of people were forced to live below the poverty line and people couldn’t afford two meals a day.

“The rulers neither see your poverty nor your unemployment nor the storm of inflation,” the PPP leader said.

“This puppet cannot provide bread and employment to people and says ‘I won’t leave anyone.’

“But now the people fed up of unemployment, poverty and inflation will not leave this puppet, oppressor and selected.”

Bilawal said he could not accept the country in its current state as a democracy “where there is no freedom of speech, writing, doing rallies and protesting peacefully”.

He said the PPP had linked its foundations to the PDM’s objectives, adding: “We have become one. We are on one page and one stage and we will make these puppets run away with your support.”

Bilawal reiterated that if Prime Minister Imran refused to resign by January 31, the opposition would stage a long march to Islamabad.
