KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has said he will not abandon the struggle initiated by his grandfather, former prime minister Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.
“The rich are getting richer while the poor are getting poorer in the country as feudal landlords are still imposing their decisions on the people,” Bilawal said in his address to a gathering of party activists and supporters on PPP’s foundation day in Karachi’s Malir area on Monday.
Claiming some forces were false propagating that his party had diverted from its core principles, Bilawal said the PPP did not change its path despite countless hurdles.
“History tells us the PPP successfully averted all hurdles, including military dictatorships, which came in its way,” he said.
The PPP chairman said his party stood with the poor people of Pakistan, and would oppose privatisation of public institutions, including the Pakistan Steel Mills.
Bilawal argued he was a custodian of his grandfather’s vision, adding his party’s struggle will continue till elimination of the last terrorist from Pakistan.
Earlier this month during his visit to Thatta and Sujawal as part of the LG poll campaign, Bilawal claimed “the people of Sindh love the Bhuttos and only the Bhuttos are their saviours.”
