Senator Gulzar Ahmed Khan was a valuable asset of the Pakistan Peoples Party. During the period of dictatorship many attempts were made to destroy the PPP. Members of the party underwent great hardship but even so Khan Sahib maintained his relationship with the party. He had close personal relationships with the Bhutto family especial Mohtrama Benazir Bhutto Shaheed. Mohtrama gave him important responsibilities that he fulfilled admirably. He was a silent worker for democracy and the party who was never in it for personal aggrandisement. His son Senator Waqar Ahmed Khan is also a polished politician. During the period I served as Prime Minister of Pakistan, Senator Gulzar’s son, Senator Waqar served as minister for investment and minister for privatisation. It is a matter of great honour for me that our families have always had close and friendly relations with each other.
