Islamabad, Dec 1 (ANI): Pakistan Peoples Party chairperson Benazir Bhutto has done what late Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi did in the 1970s by promising Roti, Kapra aur Makan (food, clothing and shelter) to the people of Pakistan if her party comes to power.

In addition to this Benazir, has also promised education, energy and employment for all.

We believe that the key to development lies in focusing on employment, education, energy, environment and equality and in the January 8 elections we are presenting a better future for the people of Pakistan, Benazir said while releasing her partys manifesto.

Interestingly, the PPP has included all 36 points of the Charter of Democracy in its manifesto, The News reported.

After coming into power, we would construct small dams to overcome the water shortage in the country, power generation would be promoted and the menace of load-shedding would be ended, Benazir said.

The PPP would remove the ban on student unions, but at the same time would not allow arms on campuses and even in Madrassas. The education curriculum will also be revised in line with modern education, she added. (ANI)
