PPP, the largest political party of the country today is totally disconnected with its workers. These workers have always been the backbone of the party that have stood by the leadership through thick and thin whether it was in jails during Zia's tyrannical rule or in exile due to Musharraf's oppression. The workers unquestioned loyalty was for Zulfikar Ali Bhutto's legacy and his political heiress Benazir Bhutto. Since her death, there is a vacuum which has widened the gap between the workers and new leadership whose priority seem to be personal friends and hanger-ons. The workers are very agitated that even after party's being in power for a whole year, those who plotted her murder have not been held. To add insult to injury the party co-chairman has stated that he knows who was behind her murder and yet he has chosen not to name the murderers. This sorry state of affairs is causing a great deal of heartburn to the party loyalists who even vented their anger on the occasion of Benazir's first death anniversary at Garhi Khuda Baksh. Today political orphans like Sheikh Rasheed, who is on record having insulted both ZAB and BB, are meeting the President. Those whom Benazir had accused of plotting her assassination are being considered for coalition partnership. What is happening right now just does not make sense to workers. They are also totally disillusioned with the silence of CEC members who have succumbed to trappings and temptations of power instead of showing loyalty for the legacy of Benazir. -NAZEER ABRO, Hyderabad, via e-mail, January 2.
