KARACHI: Bilawal Bhutto Zardari Chairman Pakistan Peoples Party has felicitated the entire Pakistani nation on the 43rd anniversary of the passage of country’s first unanimous 1973 Constitution architected by first elected Prime Minister Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto.
“People and the national institutions of Pakistan are grateful to architects of the 1973 Constitution, which protected the sovereignty and the integrity of the country after suffering worst debacle inflicted by the dictatorial regimes on the nation,” he said in a statement.
Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that 1973 Constitution strengthened the unity of Pakistani nation and groomed into a vibrant Muslim model country but dictatorial regimes later defaced the Constitution and sown the seeds of ethnic, sectarian and religious hatred to tear apart the fabric of federation and promote dictatorial forces to hit the very roots of the nation.
PPP Chairman appreciated the bold and brave approach of former President Asif Ali Zardari and government led by him for transferring his own powers as President to the Parliament and restoring the 1973 Constitution in its original form.
He said that 1973 Constitution is a strong and binding document of national unity which is a greatest weapon against the forces of disintegration who want to rip apart our society in the name of different ethnic, sectarian and religious grounds.
Bilawal Bhutto paid tributes to the architects of 1973 Constitution and those who restored in its original shape under the leadership of former President Asif Ali Zardari.
