PPP Raising Day... By Col. (r) Riaz

03 December, 2013

The PPP observed its 46th Yom e Tasees or the Raising Day on November 30th at Bilawal House Karachi. As usual the speakers including the rarely seen party Chairman Bilawal Zardari Bhutto tried but in vain to highlight the sacrifices and achievements of Benazir Bhutto and Asif Ali Zardari and wanted to convey to the people that the PPP had always challenged the status quo and would show to the world in 2008 that it was still very much alive. Only, the young Bilawal somehow didn't look or sound very convincing or sure of himself and his party. Even the stalwarts like Qaim Ali Shah (who mixed up Bilawal House with MQM's 90) and Raza Rabbani had not much to offer except the theatrical harangues. mannerism and gesticulation.

One wonders why can't our so called seasoned and learned leaders address the audience in a more mature and sober way the way the Quaid e Azam, the Quaid e Millat Liaqat Ali Khan, the great Shaheed Su herwardy and many other leaders of the yore did? They should know that in these days of electronic media they are not addressing the Tangawalas only but they are also being watched and heard in almost every home of Pakistan where some men of reasonable knowledge and intellect also live. Frankly, at present it is more fun and amusing to watch these so called leaders than listen to what they are saying!!
