ISLAMABAD: The 85th birth anniversary of former prime minister and founder of the Pakistan People's Party (PPP)‚ Zulfikar Ali Bhutto will be observed Sunday across the country.

Zulfikar Ali Bhutto formed PPP on November 30‚ 1967. Consensus constitution of 1973 was enacted during his regime.

He joined President Iskander Mirza's Cabinet as Commerce Minister. He was the youngest Minister in Ayub Khan's Cabinet. In 1963‚ he took over the post of Foreign Minister from Muhammad Ali Bogra.

Bhutto left Ayub's Cabinet over differences concerning the Tashkent Agreement.

On April 4‚ 1979‚ the former Prime Minister was hanged‚ after the Supreme Court upheld the death sentence passed by the Lahore High Court. The High Court had given him the death sentence on charges of murder of the father of a dissident PPP politician. Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was buried in his ancestral village at Garhi Khuda Baksh.

End.
