Mayor Karachi to be the man behind May 12 violence, Bilawal

The chairman Pakistan Peoples’ Party Bilawal Bhutto paying the homage to party workers, who had laid their lives on May 12, vowed he would not let waste the blood of workers and will continue the struggle getting justice for them.
“On May 12 terrorists slaughtered PPP workers when a dictator had waved his punch, however, the PPP Jialy came out from their houses only for the chief justice,” Bilawal said while addressing the public rally in Karachi.He claimed 14 of PPP workers were killed on May 12 as they laid down their lives in the struggle for free judiciary.
Earlier, he was warmly welcomed as arrival at the venue and PPP supporters showered him with flower petals, danced and chanted slogans.“We chose Hakeem Saeed ground to pay tribute to our martyrs. On May 12, 2007 Musharraf’s cronies martyred our workers,” he said. “The people of Karachi will never accept a new MQM-P under the name of PTI. This is our city and we can do our gathering anywhere in the metropolis.”
The PPP leader blamed MQM-P leader and Mayor Karachi Wasim Akhtar to be the man behind May 12 violence. “The man who is now Mayor Karachi was Home Minister at that time, he is the one responsible behind the carnage on that day,” he said.
Taking further jibes at the MQM-P, the PPP leader said that soon after the party’s Liaquatabad rally all of MQM-P’s factions got united.
PPP leaders Sherry Rehman, CM Murad Ali Shah, Taj Haider, Qaim Ali Shah are also present at the venue along with party chairman.
