President Asif Ali Zardari’s daughter, Bukhtawar, vowed to support PM Yousuf Raza Gilani during his troublesome period. Bakhtawar has further recommended the PM, not to breach the constitution of Pakistan as he is already facing contempt charges.
“You will not desecrate the graves of our martyrs. You may lose your office. You may lose your government but you must do what is right, Mr. Prime Minister you will not violate Vienna convention, you will not violate the Constitution of Pakistan.” stated Bakhtawar while tweeting her brother’s quotes.
In another tweet she quoted “I have faith in you Mr. Prime Minister. You will make Shaheed Benazir Bhutto and Shaheed Zulfikar Ali Bhutto proud, they can threaten to send Yousuf Raza Gillani of Multan to prison but he is a follower of Bhutto Shaheed. We do not fear prison cells. We do not fear death cells,” tweeted Bakhtawar. “Just as Shaheed Bhutto was vindicated, you too shall be vindicated.”
The tweets came at the time when the SC was set to announce its verdict on the contempt case against Mr. Gilani.
Though, the Supreme Court postponed its verdict and would most likely announce it on April 26, Thursday.
