GILGIT, Dec 27: Thousands of people, including activists of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and other political groupings in major towns of the Northern Areas remembered former prime minister Benazir Bhutto on her first death anniversary on Saturday.
They renewed the pledge to fulfil the slain leader’s missions, i.e. to strive for strengthening democracy in the country.
Glowing tributes were paid to Ms Bhutto in condolence references, Quran Khawani, talk shows and declamation contests arranged at district level.
In the condolence references, speakers said Ms Bhutto gave her life for democracy and freedom.
Two-minute silence was observed during all functions at 5:20pm, the time the PPP chairperson was killed in a suicide attack outside Liaquat Bagh in Rawalpindi. Courtesy Dawn
