Black day: PPP vows to continue struggle for democracy

CHITRAL: The PPP Chitral on Friday observed a black day against the imposition of martial law in the country by Gen Ziaul Haq on July 5, 1977.

In this regard, the party held a gathering chaired by PPP Upper Chitral Amirullah Yaftali.

PPP Lower Chitral President Alam Zeb Adv, Chairman Bilawal Force Sardar Hussain, Labour wing chief Anisuddin, Javed Iqbal, Jamiluddin and others spoke on the occasion.

The speakers said Gen Zia after taking over promised to hold elections in 90 days and hand over power back to the civilians but ruled the country for 11 years.

The country witnessed the scourges of sectarianism, lawlessness and cultures of heroin and Kalashnikov during the military rule of Gen Zia, they said.

They said the PPP leadership always rendered sacrifices for the cause of democracy and people’s basic rights.

The speakers regretted that today conspiracies were also being hatched against democracy and the selected government was targeting the opposition in order to conceal its failure to deliver.

The participants paid tributes to all those who sacrificed for democracy and vowed to continue struggle for strengthening democratic values.

    To implement the ideology you have to give people the basic necessities of life (in PPP’s term, Rooti, Kupra, Makkan). If you deprived them with the basic rights (through corruption), the ideology will be a mere slogan. PPP has to clean the dirt and give the people confidence. Once there, they will themselves fight the undemocratic forces.

  2. Javed Karim says

    Anti democracy people always point fingers at PPP by targeting it as a party of Zaradari, ie a corrupt man. PPP is not Zardari but an ideology under which common people are to decide who to rule the country. There will be either PPP or dictatorship as there is no third democratic party.

      Hahaaaah, what a joke .the concept of comman man is here in chitral where few individuals divided the chitralis for their own interests and this ideology transfer one generation to another and these people dont know how this ideology put their and their children, s moral down. And they are happy with jiye Bhutto.And these people dont know the fuedals system transfer from one generation to another. Ideas and ideology develop nations not family system. From sind ,baluchistan, punjab and nwfp show me one person out of fuedals family and it come from 1947.only chitral but unfortunately there is lake of leadership in every corner.

    Black day for za Bhutto family but white day for Zardari family and present ppp

  4. Jalaluddin Ahmed says

    PPP can regain its glory, IF and only IF it officially disassociates itself from Zardari dynasty and its beneficiaries.
    The sooner the better it is for Pakistan politics.

  5. Ehtisham says

    PPP’s struggle for democracy means struggle for further opportunity to carry out CORRUPTION, which is the hallmark of this party. During both tenures of Benazir, corruption was formally institutionalized and government jobs were publicly auctioned. Who can deny that.

  6. Khan kN says

    Present PPP, including Zardari and Bilawal with all PPP workers should be thankful to ziaul haq and the pak army to demolish Bhutto, a government in 1977 otherwise today bilawal and Zardari group could be in the street sealing cinema tickets. After Bhutto’s regime present ppp group found a chance to hijack the party. Today Bhuto is live in the lips of bilawal, Asif Zardari and jeeyale’s because of Zia.
