PPP marks its 49th foundation day


KARACHI: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) marked its 49th Foundation Day on Monday.
PPP, which was founded on November 30 1967, has organized rallies and seminars across the country to pay rich tributes to its founding leaders and workers.
In a message on the eve of the 49th founding day, PPP co-chairman and Pakistan’s former president Asif Ali Zardari has vowed that the Party’s struggle to build a progressive, egalitarian and democratic society will continue unabated despite odds.
“I wish to reiterate that the Party aims at making Pakistan a welfare driven state- a state in which the motivating force and rationale for state policies is the welfare of the people and nothing else.”
“It is also an occasion to renew our pledge to empower the people, emancipate women, integrate the non-Muslim minorities in the national mainstream and strengthen democratic institutions and to serve the masses,” he said
