ISLAMABAD: Chairperson Pakistan Peoples Party (Shaheed Bhutto) Ghinwa Bhutto has said that a United Nations probe into the assassination of Benazir Bhutto would only aggravate the things because the UN was not an impartial body. In an interview with a private TV channel, she said that change in Pakistan’s politics was imminent. She said a peaceful revolution was need of the hour. She lamented that rich were getting richer and the poor poorer because the economic system was full of contradictions.
She condemned the assassination of Benazir Bhutto and said there could be many reasons behind the Liaquat Bagh tragedy. The PPP (SB) chairperson said that Pervez Musharraf’s eight-year rule was darkest in the history of Pakistan during which poor people were crushed and policies of US President Bush were pursued.
Ghinwa said if Fatima Bhutto joined the politics, this would bring an end to her writing activities.
She disclosed that Shahnawaz Bhutto had been assassinated through her wife Rehana by former president Zia ul Haq and a French court had sentenced her to two-year imprisonment. She said she had much knowledge about Benazir Bhutto before marriage to Murtaza Bhutto. She said she was more impressed by late Zulfikar ali Bhutto.
About Fatima Bhutto Bhutto, she said she considered her as her real daughter because she was only four and a half years old when she was married to Murtaza Bhutto. Fatima herself considered her as her mother, she said adding that Fatima was much impressed by her father and grandfather.
Asked what would be her priority if elected prime minister of Pakistan, she said she would give foremost importance to the law and order situation. Ghinwa ruled out adjustment with any party in future. However, she said adjustments were possible on single seats. To a question, she said she had no contact with her mother-in-law Begum Nusrat Bhutto for the last 11 years.-SANA
