ISLAMABAD, Thursday, December 3, 2020 (WNP/DL): On the occasion of Pakistan Peoples Party’s foundation day, Aseefa Bhutto Zardari stunned the critics by her maiden speech at the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM)’s rally held in Multan on Monday, November 30.
After witnessing her confidence and communication context throughout the procession, they termed her a born leader and a catalyst for change.
The critics were of the view that she is the ultimate replacement of her mother former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and can accomplish the unfinished agenda of ‘Roti, Kapra aur Makan’ in broader perspective.
Keeping in view the needs of the hour, the Roti (bread) can be assumed as financially sound, Kapra (clothes) as modern technology and Makan (house) as standard of living.
She was precise but imparted a very loud and clear message to the government ‘to pack up’ but the irony is that the government has taken her lightly. Perhaps it is committing the same blunder as made by former president general Prevez Musharraf taking the ‘Lawyers Movement’ easy.
The Aseefa’s induction in politics is a red signal to the corridors of power as she was the last card to be played by her father former president Asif Ali Zardari in any untoward situation.
During the demonstration, she asked the people time and again to wear the face mask to contain and control spread of the coronavirus pandemic but she never knew that they were forced to lead a miserable life due to burgeoning inflation in the country and affording anti-virus protocols are beyond their financial position.
The people who voted Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in general election 2018 are cursing themselves now and repenting by participating in anti-government rallies aggressively without giving a damn to the second wave of the COVID-19.
No doubt, it could prove a referendum against the incumbent government if the opposition parties united under the umbrella of PDM make their upcoming events of Lahore and Islamabad a success.
