The Role of PPP in Pakistan


Zulafiqar Ali Bhutto (January 5, 1928 – April 4, 1979) was a Pakistani politician. In 1957, Bhutto became the youngest member of Pakistani delegation to the United Nations. He would address the United Nations 6th committee on aggression on October 25, 1957 and lead Pakistan deputation to the United Nations Conferences on the Law of the Seas in 1958. In the same year Bhutto became the youngest Pakistani cabinet minister when he was given the charge of the energy ministry by the president Ayub Khan who has declared Martial law in the country. Bhutto became the close and interested advisor to the Ayub. Bhutto aided Ayub in negotiating the Indus Water Treaty with India in 1960. In 1961, Bhutto negotiated an oil exploration agreement with the USSR, which also provided economic and technical aid to the Pakistan. USSR also started establishing Pakistan Steel Mills complex at Karachi. In 1963, he was appointed Pakistan’s foreign minister. Ayub khan impressed by Bhutto and thought that in him.

The ceasefire after the 1965 Indo-Pak war and the Tashkent Declaration brought the differences between Bhutto and Ayub. President Ayub Khan and Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri of India declare the Tashkent agrement at a meeting sponsored by the USSR in 1966. Bhutto was against the Ayub’s concept of friendship with India. Because Pakistan army occupies 500 square miles the Indian part in the war and Bhutto wants to talk with India first on the Kashmir issue. But Ayub khan not talks a single word in the meeting of Tashkent Declaration. Therefore Bhutto left the Ayub khan’s cabinet and resigned.
