PDM Parties: PPP not to invite PDM parties to Bhutto death anniversary event

If the PPP does not invite other PDM parties to the event, it will be the first such occasion since formation of the 10-party alliance during a multi-party conference (MPC) in Islamabad on Sept 20 last year.


Pakistan Politico Magazine

The Pakistan Peo­ples Party (PPP), which has announced its plan to hold a public meeting in Rawalpindi on April 4 to mark the 42nd death anniversary of its founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, has not yet invited to it other component parties of the Pakis­tan Democratic Movement (PDM) tho­ugh the party is still part of the opposition alliance.

Previously, the PPP had invited the PDM parties to participate in its various programmes, including the public meeting in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh on 13th death anniversary of former prime minister and slain PPP leader Benazir Bhutto on Dec 27 last year.


Besides this, the PDM leadership had participated in the PPP-organised public meeting in Karachi to mark the Karsaz blast tragedy anniversary and its public meeting in Multan on Nov 30 last year to celebrate the party’s founding day.

When contacted, PPP secretary general Farhatullah Babar confirmed that the party had so far not extended invitation to the PDM leaders for the April 4 rally in Rawalpindi. He, however, claimed that there was a possibility that the party leadership might invite the PDM leaders to the event, the first major activity being conducted by the PPP since its refusal to support the idea of submitting en masse resignations from the assemblies at the time of starting an anti-government long march.

India's River Diversion Plan and South Asia's Waters

More dams are to come, as India’s need to power its economy means it is quietly spending billions on hydropower in Kashmir. The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
