Gilani said Shaheed Bhutto stood against the dictatorship and spent his life for the welfare of people and the country’s prosperity besides playing a role in uniting the third world to fight for their rights and invoking a spirit of brotherhood among the Muslim Ummah.
The Prime Minister mentioned the contribution of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto in shape of economic and agricultural reforms, the programmes on education, health, culture and social welfare, the 1973 Constitution and network of industry, including Steels Mills.
He said that the state enemies got involved into conspiracies against Shaheed Bhutto knowing that he was firm to make Pakistan a democratic welfare state in a true sense. However, he said, the great leader did not accept to bow down before the military dictator.
Gilani said there was a huge following of the views of Shaheed Bhutto internationally that focused on resolving the problems of common man. —APP
