ISLAMABAD - PPP’s efforts to convince party’s Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari to return to country and kick start the election campaign on the death anniversary of party’s founder chairman Zulfikar Ali Bhutto on April 4 have so far failed to bear the fruit.

Well-placed sources told TheNation on Sunday that the PPP central leadership was now considering arranging telephonic address of party’s powerful chairman to kick off the party’s election campaign.

Apart from President Asif Ali Zardari, several key PPP leaders were now in Dubai to prevail upon Bilawal to capitalize on April 4 which many PPP leaders believed would have a greater impact on party’s election campaign.

Despite several attempts neither PPP Information Secretary Qamar Zaman Kaira nor presidential spokesman Farhatullah Babar were available for their comments, informed sources said that Bilawal might return on April 7 to address a couple of party’s public meetings.

Even though some sources in the party rejected the notion that Bilawal was reluctant to concede to the requests of several key party leaders reportedly because of his differences with his aunt Faryal Talpur on some party issues.

“These are all speculations, there are no differences what so ever between the two,” said a senior PPP leader who spoke to TheNation requesting not to be named.

He also rejected some reports that President Asif Ali Zardari was in Dubai to persuade his son to return to Pakistan to participate in the 34th death anniversary of party’s founding chairman on April 4.

He was of the view that some political opponents were spreading remours of differences because of the presence of the father and the son in Dubai where President Zardari was also on routine private visit.

He also dismissed the notion that there were any differences between Bilwal and his aunt Faryal Talpur who has a very important role in running the party affairs.
