Islamabad: Pakistan Peoples Party was granted permission by the Lahore High Court to continue its preparation to observe martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto at Liaqat Bagh Rawalpindi on 27th December.
President PPP Punjab, Qamar Zaman Kaira along with Secretary General PPPP Farhatullah Babar, Secretary Information PPPP Dr. Nafisa Shah, general secretary PPP Punjab Chaudhry Manzoor Ahmed, spokesman to the Chairman PPP Senator Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar and Nazir Dhoki addressing a press conference at Media Office Islamabad said that PPP is observing this martyrdom anniversary of Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto at Liaqat Bagh the very first time and workers of the party are gathering at Liaqat Bagh on 27th December from all over the country.
The Party had informed the administration on 1st of December 2019 and just last night the administration informed us that the permission to hold jalsa at Liaqat Bagh on 27th December has been refused. The PPP approached court and informed the court about the situation on which court allowed the party to continue preparations for the planned jalsa at Liaqat Bagh. The administration is responsible for providing the security and PPP is with the constitution and law. The PPP will give strategy for the future in that jalsa. He reminded that at the time when Shaheed Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto had addressed in Liaqat Bagh, the country was going through a dire situation and once more the situation demands leadership. Bilawal Bhutto Zardari is the only leader who can provide that leadership, he said.
Qamar Zaman Kaira said that holding public gathering is the right of every party and PPP will exercise that right. When Jamaat-e-Islami can hold jalsa just couple of days ago in Islamabad then PPP also has the right to hold public gathering. He also said that Shahbaz Sharif should come back to country and fulfil his responsibility and Maryam Nawaz should also break her silence.
