Pakistan News / PPP Foundation Day > Zulfikar Ali Bhutto founded the party on November 30, 1967 in Lahore at the residence of Dr. Mubashir Hasan, the finance minister in ZA Bhutto’s cabinet.
Dr. Hasan believes still today that the PPP could not again have a leader like the ZA Bhutto.
The PPP walked into the power corridors three times during the last 30 days; but, the party could not materialize its dream to rule the largest province Punjab, where it changed the provincial leadership several times.
Recently, Federal minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Mian Manzoor Ahmed Wattoo has been picked up as the provincial president to make efforts to mobilize the party at grass-root level. Accordingly, the Foundation Day ceremonies are being held at district and divisional levels.
The critics believe that the slogan which was made the basis of the party, has been jettisoned. It should be mentioned here that the PPP enshrined its basic principles as ‘Islam is our Faith, Democracy is our politics, Socialism is our Economy and All Power to the People’.
