44th founding day of PPP observed in Gilgit – Baltistan

PT Report

Gilgit, November 30: The 44th Founding Day of Pakistan Peoples Party was observed today by party members and activists in different parts of Gilgit – Baltistan today.

Different gatherings were held to commemorate the day when Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and his comrades laid the foundation of Pakistan’s most popular political party. The party came into being during a time when self-proclaimed “Filed Martial”, General Ayub Khan, was ruling Pakistan with a iron hand.

Speakers at different gatherings highlighted the philosophy and ideologies of the founding father of PPP and resolved to carry his mission forward.

Governor Wazir Baig in his message said that all political reforms in Gilgit – Baltistan region have been introduced by the Pakistan Peoples Party. He also counted the abolition of FCR and the Chieftains’ rule from all parts of Gilgit – Baltistan as an achievement of Pakistan Peoples Party.

In Gilgit the Chief Minister and his cabinet members participated in a convention held to pay tribute to party leaders and workers. Gatherings were also held in Hunza, Skardu, Gahkuch, Ghanche and other parts of Gilgit – Baltistan region.

PPP continues facing a leadership crisis since the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, daughter of the party’s founder, and two times premier of Pakistan.

President Zardari’s role as co-chairman of the party has been criticized by his opponents as well as party stalwarts, like Safdar Abbasi and Naheed Khan. The opposition of Zardari has costed these two prominent leaders of PPP their party membership.

Oblivious to the harsh criticism of Zardari by segments of the society, the party leaders and workers in Gilgit – Baltistan expressed confidence in leadership of the party and expressed the willingness to work for the ideology.

  1. Its very unfortunate that the people of the region are still in deep slumber and the haven’t yet recognized whom to be considered their well wisher.The region should strive for its identity which has been badly jeopardized by the so called political parties.If these parties are that much sincere with the region why don’t they give legal status to GB.After sixty years of freedom the people of the region are not having access too the national assembly and the federal governments representatives bluntly declare GB disputed territory.If these political parties would not have intervened in the region then these people would not have been misled.It time for the educated people to think critically and come out of the web of traditional thinking.Otherwise we will be crashed by these parties who are among us to distort our identity.
