KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) unveiled on Wednesday the official logo for its Golden Jubilee Foundation Day on November 30, 2017.
The party has planned a rally in Islamabad to mark its 50th anniversary.
PPP was founded by former prime minister and popular leader Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto on November 30, 1967. The party, through a mass mandate, managed to form the federal government thrice in its 50-year political journey.
Speaking at a press conference on October 13, PPP leader Chaudhry Manzoor said: “PPP has survived four martial laws and remained firm in its vision”.
PPP continues to serve people the same way it did before, he added.
The party is known for braving the harsh dictatorship of General Zia-ul-Haq, who not only dismissed the Bhutto-led government but was also perceived to be involved in the controversial decision against the party leader, leading to his hanging.
After Bhutto’s demise, the party was led by his wife late Nusrat Bhutto.
Later, his daughter late Benazir Bhutto took the party’s helm of affairs till her tragic assassination at Rawalpindi’s Liaquat Bagh on Dec 27, 2007.
The party is now led by Benazir's son, Bilawal.
