PPP leaders Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari and Farhatullah Babar lent their support to the upcoming Aurat March 2020, issuing statements to show solidarity for the rally on International Women Day.

PPP leader and party chairperson Bilawal’s sister, Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari, said Sunday: “I wholeheartedly support #AuratMarch2020. Voices should be heard, issues should be discussed, and rights should be protected.

Prior to that, the PPP had termed threats made by “some elements” against the March 8 rally — coinciding with the International Women Day 2020 — as “unwarranted, uncalled for and totally unacceptable”. In a statement, PPP Secretary-General and former senator, Farhatullah Babar, underlined that the country’s “constitution guaranteed freedom of association and freedom of assembly to everyone that could not be curtailed by any one by hurling threats”.
