HYDERABAD -- Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Sindh information secretary Aajiz Dhamrah has said that the federal government is trying to create hurdles in the death anniversary programme of party leader Benazir Bhutto, scheduled for Friday in Liaquat Bagh (Rawalpindi) through 'illegal' acts, but party workers would reach Pindi at all costs.
Addressing a press conference in the local circuit house, he said the venue was chosen for the programme because Benazir Bhutto had been assassinated there and undemocratic forces tried to destabilise Pakistan. The PPP wanted to dispel that impression because the party believed in strong federation and had already paid its price, he added.
He said the PPP could not be intimidated, adding that Ms Bhutto had given her life for democratic institutions. He said party workers were poised to reach Rawalpindi, but their bookings in trains were being cancelled at the instance of an 'idiot of Rawalpindi'. Only 12 bogeys could be booked from Hyderabad after paying the due cost, he added.
