BAHAWALPUR - Pakistan People's Party-Shaheed Bhutto Chairperson Ghinwa Bhutto announced on Sunday that Fatima Bhutto, her daughter, will contest the forthcoming general election from NA-192 Liaquatpur in district Rahim Yar Khan.

In an exclusive interview with TheNation during her visit to Bahawalpur, she said that the differences between the judiciary and the government had worsened as the government was not implementing the court decisions and trying to create hurdles in this regard. She said the national judicial system was in fact a part of British era's colonial system that was aimed at making the people of subcontinent slaves.

She said that the murderer of Mir Murtaza Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto had become fake heir of ZA Bhutto and ruler of Pakistan by adopting the name of Bhutto. "Shaheed Benazir Bhutto belongs to us and finding her murderer is our duty," she said.

She added that the truth will be disclosed soon and the national criminals will get strict punishments for their crimes. The portrait of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto must be placed in the PPP-SB offices along with the other Bhuttos' pictures, she added.

"Our present judiciary was restored through the public power and is facing a many problems. It is the need of hour to bring changes to the current judicial system to provide fair and speedy justice. The national political system provides guideline to all the institutions of the country and makes coordination between these institutions. Shaheed Bhutto tried to provide a political system to the nation but he was murdered by a dictator because powerful elements did not want such system in Pakistan."

She said that constitutional amendment about the creation of new provinces should be made by keeping in view the resolutions passed by the Punjab Assembly for the restoration of Bahawalpur and creation of South Punjab province.
