PPP’s senior leader Jehangir Badar’s death occurred on Sunday 13 November 2016 due to cardiac arrest. The senior leader was a close aide of Benazir Bhutto and was always in the center light whenever he stepped on the stage. Moonis Elahi expressed grief and sorrow over his death and said “despite our political differences, he was a good person and I pray may his soul rest in peace”.
Lately Jehangir Badar had reduced his political activities due to his ailment but he was still not forgotten in the political world of Pakistan. He was an avid supporter of democracy and had even been imprisoned during Gen Zia ul Haq’s martial law. It is a day PPP has lost a loyal leader who never backed out even in tough times.
