ISLAMABAD President Asif Ali Zardari has asked both the Government and PPP to organise gigantic celebrations after the passage of the 18th Constitutional Amendment, as the party did in 1973 when the then Parliament had initially passed the Constitution. In fact the President has desired to lead a countrywide rally and addresses to the public meetings in big cities, as did former prime minister and founding chairman of the PPP Zulfikar Ali Bhutto after the passage of the 1973 Constitution on April 19, 1973. However, sources in the PPP have informed TheNation that the security authorities had simply ruled out possibilities of going ahead with the Presidents idea of leading rallies and addressing public meetings in big cities due to prevailing security situations. The security apparatus of the Government has rather warned the President against any such adventurous move. Still, the PPP leadership is contemplating to make it a big event as the replica of celebrations in 1973 led by ZAB, the sources informed. The security managers and some other advisors of the President have suggested the use of information and communication technologies including the techniques of creating virtual reality. Elaborating on that the sources further informed that President could address from the Presidency to the public gatherings in big cities simultaneously wherein huge screens would also show him speaking live. The only thing final so far is that the President wanted to address public gatherings in seven cities either through conference calls or visiting there in person. The cities to be selected for this purposed include Karachi, Haiderabad, Multan, Faisalabad, Lahore, Peshawar, and Quetta. Any of the three big cities can be dropped other than the four provincial capitals, the sources further informed. According to the sources, the President has been taking briefings from the IT experts. Presidential Spokesman former senator Farhatullah Babar was not available for comments.
