LAHORE - PPP Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari yesterday attended the birthday function of Shaharyar Taseer, son of former Punjab governor Salman Taseer. Bilawal Bhutto who had arrived in the city on Friday, was accompanied by his sisters Bukhtawar Bhutto and Asifa Bhutto to the residence of Salman Taseer.
Shaharyar has his birthday on January 4 but he shifted the occasion to January 9 due to murder of his father Salman Taseer on the same date in Islamabad in 2011.
It may be mentioned that Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto used to visit Salman Taseer during her stay in the city as a matter of exchanging views with him on political situation and the party organisation. In recognition of the services of Salman Taseer, PPP President Asif Ali Zardari had appointed him Punjab governor.
