An Unforgettable Woman, Benazir Bhutto

Benazir bhutto

Today is the day when A great leader of Pakistan was born years ago. The lady despite of her political views admired by me for her intellectual personality and grace. She was very well educated and a brave women. When I compared her with some of other leaders of political parties she truly beats them. The negative point which I thought or her downfall was because of her husband and scandals associated with him. She had a vision and if this time life allows her she would definitely impress Pakistanis.

A graceful lady and a visionary Leader departs after a mysterious assassination. The whole nation mourns on the loss. Soon after her death Pakistan went through elections and PPP came into power. It was expected that her assassin will now be exposed but after the efforts of Scotland Yard and UN people are still waiting for the name.

She was truly a reflection of her name. I found her and Princess Diana the most Prettiest and the most unfortunate on earth.

Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) is scheduled to celebrate PPP’s assassinated chairperson, Benazir Bhutto’s 56th birthday by donating blood throughout the country, however no cake cutting ceremony will be held in this regard.

The main gathering would be held at Naudero where President Asif Ali Zardari is scheduled to donate his blood. PPP’s leadership including Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah would also be present in BB’s native town. They, along with the party workers, would also offer Fateha at her grave. The Sindh chief minister has already left for Larkana on Saturday.

According to PPP’s acting Sindh Secretary Information Waqar Mehdi, the blood collected in the blood donation drive would be sent to save lives of the Pakistan Army fighting against the terrorists in tribal areas. He said that blood donations camps would be set up in each district headquarters.

According to him, PPP would set up blood donations camps in five defunct districts of Karachi, where workers and leaders would start donating blood from 11:00 am in the morning.
