LARKANA: The central executive committee of the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) which met in Naudero House on late Monday evening paid homage to its slain leader, Benazir Bhutto, on her 14th death anniversary, and lauded her exceptional leadership qualities.

The meeting was chaired by PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari.

It strongly opposed moves to bring those extremists, who had been involved in the assassination of the former prime minister, security personnel and hundreds of other citizens, to the mainstream politics. The meeting also rejected “state’s move to strike any secret deal with extremists and militants”.

It decided to adopt an effective political strategy to send the ‘selected’ [PTI] government packing.

The CEC participants also decided to launch a public mobilisation drive from Lahore against the federal government’s “anti-people” policies from Jan 5, the birth anniversary of PPP founder and former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
