HYDERABAD, Oct 25: Writers, artists, intellectuals and political leaders paid homage to renowned artiste, playwright, short story writer and political activist Jiji Zarina Baloch on her second death anniversary, which was observed in a number of towns across the province on Thursday.

In Hyderabad, noted intellectual and Awami Tehrik chief Rasool Bux Palijo presided over the anniversary function at Awami House in Qasimabad.
