NAUNDERO: PPP activists and leaders observed the 36th death anniversary of Shaheed Shahnawaz Bhutto here on Sunday. They recited verses from the Holy book and prayed for the eternal peace of the departed soul. MNA Khursheed Junejo, Arshad Shah Rashdi, Khair Muhammad Shaikh, Maulana Abdul Rashid Qureshi and other women workers also took part in the Quran-Khuwani which was held at Bhutto House. Later free food (Lungar) was also distributed among the participants.
They paid rich tributes to Shahnawaz Bhutto and said that he fought against dictator Zia for restoration of democracy in the country and laid down his life for the cause of democracy. They undertook to follow his path and make Bilawal Bhutto Zardari prime minister of Pakistan. Later, the same participants took out a rally from Bhutto House against derogatory remarks of PTI Federal Minister Ali Amin Gandapur against their party’s founder Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. They were holding party flags, black flags in their hands and shouted slogans against Gandapur.
When they reached Sadar Kalar Chowk, they burnt the effigy of Gandapur. They said that abusive language used by Gandapur against our leader is intolerable. They said Bhutto gave unanimous constitution to the country and strengthened democracy, united 38 Muslim countries and made Pakistan an atomic state. They said people like Gandapur should feel ashamed while using unrivaled language against the leaders who served the country tirelessly. They demanded that Gandapur should tender an apology and resignation for his abusive remarks.
