After her arrival at Sukkur Airport from Karachi this morning, Bhutto led a rally to her father’s tomb in a bulletproof car.

PPP workers and local people gathered in large numbers to accord her a rousing welcome after eight years.

A large number of women chanted slogans in support of Bhutto.

Bhutto also offered prayers at graves of her two brothers Murtaza Bhutto and Shahnawaz Bhutto.

She recited Quran and offered Fateha before laying floral wreaths at the three graves.

There were reports that Benazir will address a gathering, but due to security reasons, this was avoided.

Bhutto said that she was repeatedly being told that her life was in danger, but these words couldn’t make her stay away from the people. She said she was not scared of death.

Bhutto reached Naudero after offering Fateha at her father’s grave, The News reported.

People were present in large numbers at the Naudero house of the Bhuttos.

Bhutto will stay at her native residence a day and may address a press conference before returning to Karachi. (ANI)
