PPP will continue to fight against ignorance: Zardari

Islamabad: Former President Asif Ali Zardari Wednesday said that the struggle against exploitative forces will continue. On the eve of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s 40th death anniversary, he said Bhutto had defeated exploitative forces by making the downtrodden masses aware of their rights and giving them a voice so that they can walk with pride. These forces targeted not only the Party leadership but also the people of Pakistan. Former President said that Zulfikar Ali Bhutto strengthened the sovereignty of the country but the bunch of power-hungry individuals kept this country hostage to their lust. He said that when the Parliament is kept in the dark from national issues then it is clear that everything is being done wrong. “Quaid-e-Awam (Bhutto) taught us not to bow down in the face of oppression and no power in the world can stop us from speaking the truth,” he said. PPP will continue to follow the footsteps of its founding leader and fight ignorance, poverty, exploitation and terrorism and we will not hesitate to sacrifice our lives for this cause, Zardari said.
