The Minister said had Bhutto was alive today Pakistan would have achieved remarkable economic growth in Asia and made developed country of the world. Bhutto was martyred for assembling Muslim Ummah and Pakistan on a single platform, he remarked. The Minister said dictators come and go but vision and philosophy of Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto lives forever. He said ZA Bhutto had rendered great sacrifices for promoting democracy and gave political wisdom and right of votes to people, farmers, labourers and marginalized communities. The fourth April will always be remembered as a black day in the history of Pakistan as on that day in 1979, a dictator tried to extinguish the flame of democracy, demolish rule of law, silence the voice of the poor, media and the dispossessed, and desecrated the Constitution of Pakistan. The constant struggle of Pakistan Peoples Party and its consistent sacrifices have proved that the seeds of the social democratic ideology and empowerment of masses sown by Shaheed Bhutto cannot be easily eliminated. Today, Pakistanis view dictators as evil, while the spirit of Shaheed Bhutto lives on through the 1973 Constitution drafted by PPP. He said amendments in Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR) and extension of Political Parties Act was made by the present elected government in line with vision of the Shaheed Quaid.
