KARACHI (Dunya News) – Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Sunday said that we have to fight for the rule of the people, true democracy and supremacy of the Constitution in the country.
Addressing the second power show of the 11-party opposition alliance PDM in Karachi on Sunday, he said that all the democratic powers of Pakistan have to fight this war, adding that the institutions that can safeguard the rights of people are being hollowed out one by one.
