KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari returned here on late Monday night, a week after he had gone to Dubai because of “security concerns”.

A senior PPP leader said Bilawal Bhutto was likely to stay in Karachi for “a day or two” before flying to Larkana to attend the 34th death anniversary of his grandfather, former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, to be held in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh on April 4.

“The party has already denied reports of his [Bilawal’s] differences with his father President Asif Ali Zardari or any other party leader,” he said, adding that his return would quash all such rumours.

“The schedule of his engagements has not been finalised, but he will definitively attend the death anniversary of Bhutto and later party meetings,” the PPP leader said.

Bilawal had left for Dubai last Tuesday amid reports of differences with his father and aunt Faryal Talpur over the party’s stance on several important matters, including the award of PPP tickets to candidates for the May 11 elections.

Is there any truth to the rumors making the rounds that the Zardari-Bhutto clan is quitting politics, and spare the country of their nasty ways. That would be the best things these folks can do today. And let a new crop of politicians enter the fray. Anything less is not in the best interests of the country.

Yes, I heard that the security situation in Karachi had improved ten folds during the last week...what a joke to gain attention.

Please do us all a favour and go back to Dubai. Better yet, take Zardari with you please.

Isn't the end of "Jetne Bhutto maro ge Utne Bhutto Niklenge", Bhutto Zardari will finish Zardari to (1) retain Bhutto only (2) take revnge of Bhutto's murder. PPP dispute is always over distribution of loots and Zardari is an expert specialist.

People of pakistan has the choice now,they can select the same thieves who have given them nothing but poverty and terrorism or they can select new politicians who have struggled to reach at the stage where some people are behind them.They have not been given everything in plate.They should open their eyes and see who has worked for the people of this poor country.They have lived here,sacrifised the luxurious life.They are the sincere people,not those who are using the name of great people to fool the people of this country.Nobody is perfect.
