      LARKANA, April 4: The 29th death anniversary of the founder of the
      Pakistan People's Party, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, was observed across the
      country on Friday with fervour and solemnity.

      The PPP and its factions — PPP-SB and PPP-Patriots — held Quran
      khawani and fateha events separately. The main event was held in Garhi
      Khuda Bakhsh Bhutto.

      Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani offered fateha and laid floral
      wreaths on the graves of Z.A. Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto.

      During a brief chat with journalists, he said he and his cabinet would
      try to complete the mission of Z.A. Bhutto and his daughter. He said
      with the completion of their mission, Pakistan would emerge as a
      peaceful, progressive and great country.

      The prime minister later went to the graves of 20 people killed in the
      Oct 18 bomb blasts in Ms Bhutto's homecoming procession in Karsaz and
      offered fateha.

      Foreign Minister Makhdoom Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Sindh chief
      minister-designate Syed Qaim Ali Shah, Naheed Khan, Dr Safdar Ali
      Abbasi, Mian Raza Rabbani, Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, PPP (SB) chairperson
      Ghinwa Bhutto, PPP's AJK president, senators, MNAs, MPAs, PPP's
      central and provincial leaders and a large numbers of workers and
      supporters also visited Mr Bhutto's grave.

      They also visited the graves of PPP chairperson Benazir Bhutto and her
      brothers, Mir Murtaza Bhutto and Mir Shahnawaz Bhutto, and laid floral
      wreaths and offered fateha. They chanted slogans like `Jeay Bhutto
      sada jeay' and `Zinda hay bibi zinda hay' at the mausoleum.

      Addressing a public meeting held in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh, Pakistan
      People's Party (SB) chairperson Ghinwa Bhutto said that people were
      still hostage to feudal lords and efforts were needed to jolt them out
      of their apathy.

      "We want to bring people's revolution and will not sit idle till the
      system is changed and goals are achieved."

      She alleged that Asif Ali Zardari and his friends had captured the
      PPP, which was now devoid of the spirit of Z.A. Bhutto. She said Prime
      Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani was a member of Gen Ziaul Haq's
      Majlis-i-Shoora when Z.A. Bhutto was hanged. Ms Ghinwa praised the
      loyalty of Makhdoom Amin Fahim to the PPP.

      RESOLUTIONS: The meeting adopted 13 resolutions calling for the
      release of Dr A.Q. Khan, Akhtar Mengal and other political workers. It
      called for reopening of the Z.A. Bhutto case and probe into the
      assassination of Benazir Bhutto, Akbar Bugti and Mir Balach Marri by
      judges of the superior courts.

      The meeting also called for regular hearing in the Murtaza Bhutto's
      murder case and dismissal of Shoaib Saddle, Wajid Durrani, Shahid
      Hayat, Rai Tahir and others involved in the case.

      It called for restoration of the 1973 Constitution in its originality
      and reinstatement of Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry and other judges. It
      also called for repealing the National Reconciliation Ordinance and
      the Hudood Ordinance.

      The meeting demanded an immediate halt to army operations in
      Balochistan and tribal areas and grant of complete autonomy to the
      provinces.
