Golden Jubilee Events - Rebuilding Democratic Pakistan Exhibition

A commemorative exhibition titled ‘Rebuilding Democratic Pakistan: Promise, Policy, Performance’ inaugurated by Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani at the National Art Gallery here on Thursday mirrors the visual reality of the PPP government’s success story.

The exhibition marks the celebration of the successful completion of two years of the incumbent government.

Displaying about 200 photographs, posters and graphics, the thematic show offers a diverse repertoire of selected audio-visual record, focusing on the struggle for the restoration of democracy and the transition towards the democratic system.

Starting from the return of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto in 2007 till present, the images on display also showcase various steps taken by the PPP government to take Pakistan forward on the path of progress, peace and pluralism. Divided in different categories with descriptive illustrations, the images on display show different phases of the transition towards democracy.

Organised by the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting in collaboration with the Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) and National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore, the images displayed at the exhibition cover various initiatives taken by the people’s government. Speaking to the distinguished guests, Prime Minister Gilani described the exhibition as “offering a rainbow of colours to showcase the distances covered by the PPP government since the assassination of its leader Shaheed Benazir Bhutto.”

Earlier, the prime minister took round of the exhibition and appreciated the work done by the PNCA, NCA and the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting.

In his welcome note, Minister of State for Information Syed Sumsam Ali Bukhari introduced the exhibition as ‘a chronicle of various steps taken by the people’s government’. He said the exhibition not only highlights the key features of the governance in Pakistan and the manifesto of Pakistan People’s Party but also reflects the vision of Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and the Charter of Democracy.

People from various walks of life visited the exhibition and took keen interest in the photographic display. Books on Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto and Mohtarma Benazir Bhutto and souvenirs were also put on display.
