LAHORE -The PPP's Lahore Secretary Information and party ticket holder, Zekria Butt has said that a dictator had toppled a democratic elected government on July 5, 1977 and harmed federation. While talking to newsmen here on Thursday at PPP secretariat, he said and Zia's action was actually targeted against country's development. The PPP, he said, was the only democratic force, which sacrificed the most for the restoration of democracy and for welfare of people. He said PPP was a tale of sacrifices starting from Zulfikar Ali Bhutto to Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto. He said PPP restored country's respect and dignity in the comity of nations in its first seven years rule. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto took charge as country's Prime Minister when the nation was demoralised after Fall of Dhaka in 1971. He said that immediately after becoming Prime Minister, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto made the country an atomic power and took measures for the progress and prosperity of the country at grass-root level. Enumerating achievements of Z.A Bhutto, the PPP leader said that he gave first unanimous constitution to the nation, declared Qadianis as non-Muslims, assembled Islamic countries on one platform, established many institutions for the eradication of unemployment, poverty and provided job opportunities to thousands of jobless people. Zekria further said that Zulfikar Bhutto also arranged employment opportunities for Pakistanis in Gulf countries, and the country earned a lot of foreign exchange through the money they sent home. Z.A Bhutto, he claimed, provided sound foundation to the country by establishing momentous industrials units in the country like Steel Mills, Kamra Heavy Complex and many others and saved the future of the new generation by establishing immense educational institutions. He maintained that Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto followed the footsteps of her father and sacrificed her live for the restoration of democracy in the country. Zekria was of the view that now PPP Co-Chairman Asif Ali Zardari was facing the wrath of a dictator while acting upon the doctrines of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and her daughter Benazir Bhutto. He praised Zardari's vision and bravery to pull the country out of the current challenges. He said that the month of July every year was source of inspiration for PPP workers which taught them how to face dictatorship.
