Bilawal Bhutto returns to Pakistan

KARACHI: Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari returned to Pakistan on late Monday night, a week after he went to Dubai because of “security concerns”, Dispatch News Desk (DND) reported.

Bilawal would attend the 34th death anniversary of his grandfather, former prime minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, to be held in Garhi Khuda Bakhsh on April 4, a senior PPP leader said.

“The party has already denied reports of his [Bilawal’s] differences with his father President Asif Ali Zardari or any other party leader,” he said, adding that his return would quash all such rumours.

The sources said he would also hold meetings with infuriated PPP leaders. Besides, Bilawal would participate in political activities of the party and would monitor media cell of Bilawal House.

Bilawal Bhutto had left for Dubai last Tuesday amid reports of differences with his father and aunt Faryal Talpur over the party’s stance on several important matters, including the award of PPP tickets to candidates for the May 11 elections.
