Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira. — AFP/File

ISLAMABAD: Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira on Wednesday said the Pakistan People's Party (PPP) would continue to render sacrifices until the dream of a democratic Pakistan was fulfilled, DawnNews reported.

The minister said the PPP had from its inception been made a victim of accusations, adding that, the party’s founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto had even been accused of dismembering the country. He further said that even Bhutto's opponents now appreciate his sacrifice for the country.

He said the PPP had also been accused of involvement in corruption of rupees 3,000 billion each year, adding that, even the country's entire budget did not amount to rupees 3,000 billion.

Kaira expressed revulsion over the fact that “Benazir Butto, the daughter of a family that had been sacrificing for the country, was declared a security risk”.

The PPP leader added that in spite of the torture meted out to the party leaders, the PPP had not abandoned its path to secure rights for the people.

The minister said all supporters would gather Thursday in Garhi Khuda Bux to pay tributes to Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, adding that, both the PPP’s founder and Benazir Bhutto would remain alive for and among the people.

Kaira added that PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari would be addressing the public tomorrow (Thursday).

I understand that Mr.Kaira has a right to voice his statements but......can we please not publish his statements? They're good for a few laughs initially but then get really boring!

Kaira Sahib ; You & your accidental president are successfully exploiting ZA Bhutto's legacy. It has been going on for quite a while, now try to come up with new slogan.MS. Benazir Bhutto came back after making deal with Musharraf under the patronage of Bush & Chaney. it did not work out. So try to forget so called sacrifices.By the way, what ever happened to ex law minister, Babar Awan ? He used to repeat the same mantra until he fell out of AAZ's favour.

Thats bad! What Kaira meant to say was that the citizens of Pakistan will be sacrificed at democracy's altar for the foreseeable future.

The biggest sacrifice the PPP has done is to install a feudal lawlessnes in the country and bring it to a total darkness due to lack of energy.
