  • Description

    AT LIYRI, KARACHI, YESTERDAY FORMER PAKISTANI FOREIGN MINISTER ZULFICAR ALI BHUTTO ADDRESSED A LARGE CROWD AT A RALLY WHICH FORMED PART OF HIS CAMPAIGN FOR THE NATION-WIDE ELECTION TO BE HELD ON 5 OCTOBER. HIS SUPPORTERS GAVE HIM A ROUSING RECEPTION.

    MR. BHUTTO COMMENTED ON THE CONSTITUTIONAL PROVISIONS OUTLINED BY PRESIDENT YAHYA KHAN WHEN HE ANNOUNCED THE ELECTION. HE DECLARED HIS BASIC AGREEMENTS WITH THE PRESIDENT'S VIEWS, BUT OBJECTED TO THE PROVISIONS WHICH ENABLE HIM TO DISSOLVE THE NEW ASSEMBLY IF HE DOESN'T ACCEPT ITS DRAFT CONSTITUTION. IN MR. BHUTTO'S VIEW, THE ASSEMBLY SHOULD EXERCISE FULL SOVEREIGNTY.

    THE ACTIVISTS OF MR. BHUTTO'S PAKISTAN PEOPLE'S PARTY IN THEIR RED CAPS AND CROWDS OF ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORTERS ADDED COLOUR AND LIEF TO THE WELL-ATTENDED RALLY.

    MR. BHUTTO WAS DISMISSED FROM HIS POST OF FOREIGN MINISTER BY PRESIDENT AYUB IN 1966 BUT RETURNED TO ACTIVE POLITICAL LIFE A YEAR AGO, AFTER A SPELL OF DETENTION, WHEN PRESIDENT AYUB STEPPED DOWN.
