GARHI KHUDA BAKHSH, April 3: Pakistan Peoples Party Chairperson Bilawal Bhutto Zardari appealed to workers of his party and the people of Pakistan late on Wednesday night to support the struggle of the party and stand by former prime ministers Yousuf Raza Gilani and Raja Pervez Ashraf in their hour of distress.
