Benazir’s will to be made public, says Asif Ali Zardari

PPP co-chairman Asif Ali ZardariLahore, Jan 5: PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has said that Benazir Bhutto’s will would be made public and kept at the Bilawal House along with her other memorable things, ARY TV reported.

Zardari said that at first the party’s CEC had decided that the will would be kept within the party, but "now it has decided to make it public in the wake of efforts aimed at raising doubts about it."

He said the PPP was ready to extend cooperation to Scotland Yard, if it (Yard) requested so.

Earlier, Bhutto’s son Bilawal read out the will written on October 16, two days before her return from exile to party leaders at the meeting in Naudero.

She had named Zardari as her successor in the will, Fahim told reporters.

However, Zardari passed on the mantle to Bilawal, a first-year undergraduate student of history at Oxford who is untested in politics, the Daily Times reported.

Like his grandfather Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, Bilawal attends Christ Church college.

It means the leadership is following the bloodline for a third generation, some four decades after Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto founded it. (ANI)
