PPP senior leader Aslam Gill addressed the workers at a ceremony held at Mall Road.

The cake-cutting ceremony at Governor House was organised by Ali Badar, spokesperson of PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.

Born on June 21, 1953, at Pinto Nursing Home in Karachi, Benazir Bhutto followed in the footsteps of her father, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, becoming a prominent figure in both national and international politics.

In 1982, Benazir was elected chairperson of the PPP, and after enduring exile, she returned triumphantly to Pakistan in 1986, receiving an unprecedented reception in Lahore.

Following a historic electoral victory in 1988, Benazir Bhutto became Pakistan’s first female Prime Minister.

The cabinet was also expected to give approval for pursuing cases under Article 6 of the Constitution against former President Arif Alvi, PTI founder Imran Khan, and Deputy Speaker Qasim Suri.

On July 15, Information Minister Atta Tarar said that the ruling coalition had decided to move for a ban on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Addressing a press conference, he said the federal government will file a case to ban the PTI. The government would keep the current situation in mind before taking a step in this regard, he added.

“The PTI and the country cannot go together,” he categorically stated.

He claimed that the government was trying to stabilise the country politically and economically, while efforts were being made to thwart its efforts.

Tarar also announced that the PML-N led government has decided to file a review appeal against the decision of the Supreme Court granting reserved seats to the PTI.
