The major event of the anniversary will be held at Shaheed Benazir Bhutto mausoleum Nau Dero (Larkana) where central leadership of PPP has reached to participate in the congregation.

Benazir Bhutto, was Pakistan’s first female prime minister and the head of the Pakistan People’s Party founded by her father.

She remained Prime Minister of Pakistan from 1988 to 1990 and again from 1993 to 1996. She returned to Pakistan only in 2007 despite threats to her life.

The former PM survived an assassination attempt in Karachi when she arrived in Pakistan on October 18, 2007. Two explosions occurred shortly after she had landed and left Jinnah International Airport returning from her exile. Although she was not injured, but the explosions, later found to be a suicide-bomb attack, killed 139 people and injured at least 450.
