Karachi - PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has greeted the nation on Independence Day and laid stress on further strengthening the democracy so that fruits of freedom and independence reach all and sundry.

In his message to nation, Bilawal said our founding fathers had dreamt of an egalitarian society in the new country where rights of every individual have to be protected without any discrimination. A democratic struggle led by Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah culminated at the foundation of country but thereafter dictatorial forces blew up the democracy in bud forcing the nation to launch an un-relented struggle for its restoration under the leadership of Pakistan People’s Party, he added.

“It is due to the sacrifices of democratic heroes of our nation like Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto Shaheed, Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and thousands of other martyrs and maimed democratic workers that people have exerted their powers to establish a true Pakistan in the light of its founding ideology,” he added.

Bilawal said, “The PPP is proud of its historic struggle and we will continue our struggle for achieving the goal of a federal and democratic polity in accordance with the vision of Quaid-e-Azam, Quaid-e-Awam and Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto.

We will continue to fight the militant mindset to the finish, no matter what the price and what the odds.”
