OUR STAFF REPORTER LAHORE - The PPP will observe Black Day on July 5 (today) throughout the country to condemn military dictator General Ziaul Haqs unconstitutional act of overthrowing Zulfiqar Ali Bhuttos government on July 5, 1977. General Zia had dethroned the elected government of ZA Bhutto on July 5 setting aside the Constitution of 1973. ZAB was later sent to jail and hanged to death through a controversial verdict of the Supreme Court which is now re-visiting the case after a presidential reference filed in the court. Zia had then promised the nation to hold general elections within 90 days, but he retracted from his pledge and ruled the country for 11 years. The day is observed every year as PPP organises functions and rallies to denounce General Zias military coup. PPPs Central Executive Committee member Aurangzeb Burki said that everyday in Punjab should be observed as Black Day unless those politicians carrying the legacy of General Zia were eliminated politically. He also believes that 'dark clouds of dictatorship will not wither away unless and until certain PPP leaders from Punjab, who, according to him, take dictation from Raiwind, are thrown out of the party. In Lahore, the PPPs Punjab and Lahore chapters have jointly organised a seminar titled Effects of General Zias Dictatorship on Countrys Politics. Partys Punjab President Imtaiz Safdar Warraich will preside, while Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Ahmad Khosa will be the chief guest on the occasion. PPPs central secretary general Jehangir Badr, Federal Minister Samina Khalid Ghurki, Punjab Finance Secretary Aurangzeb Burki and Opposition leader Raja Riaz will also address on the occasion. A good number of PPP workers, leaders and ministers would attend the seminar. Radio Pakistan and PTV have also arranged a number of special programmes in this regard. These include excerpts from the speeches of ZAB, interviews and features with leading political and social figures, intellectuals and journalists.
