Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari on Friday said that former president Asif Ali Zardari had given Khyber Pakhtunkhwa its own “identity”.
Addressing the workers convention in Mardan, Bhutto-Zardari said: “During the tenure of Asif Ali Zardari, the BISP initiative was rolled out. The poor women were helped with the BISP initiative. The BISP programme is considered a successful initiative in terms of the women's emancipation.”
‘’The country is witnessing ballooning inflation, poverty, and unemployment due to the severe economic hardships,’’ Bhutto-Zardari rued.
‘’If the PPP will vote into power, then there will be the rule of the masses. It is important to have the right manifesto and doctrine to lead the country to success,” the former foreign minister said.

“The PPP wants to introduce a new way of politics. We want to denounce the politics of hatred and foul language. We want to establish the new tradition in a bid to move the country forward,” Bhutto-Zardari said.
He reiterated that the PPP does not want to lock horns with the political parties, adding that the party merely wants to cope with the challenges posed by inflation, unemployment, and poverty.
Bhutto-Zardari fired a broadside at the political opponents, saying, “The masses will no longer accept the selected rule as they already bear the brunt of it. The people will now have to exercise the power of vote in a way to uplift the country.”
He expressed optimism that the PPP will clinch victory in the upcoming elections, scheduled to happen on February 8.
