Bhutto - Politics


Illahi Baksh's eldest son, Sardar Wahid Baksh Bhutto was head of the Bhutto tribe and was made Sardar by people of the Bhutto tribe nationwide. During the early 20th century the Government of India was increasingly democratized and this allowed influential natives to participate in Government. Shahnawaz Bhutto first entered politics on a District Board level in Larkana and then on a provincial level in the Bombay Council, where he was appointed by British officials. Sardar Wahid Baksh Bhutto, on the other hand, was the first member of the family to be democratically elected to government, when in 1927 he was elected to the Central Legislative Assembly of India, securing the highest number of votes in Sindh, with Abdullah Haroon in second place. He continued to be elected to the Legislative Assembly until his death in 1933, which many suspected was due to poisoning by political opponents and those who saw him as a threat to their own advancement in politics.

Famous quotes containing the word politics:

    Our democracy, our culture, our whole way of life is a spectacular triumph of the blah. Why not have a political convention without politics to nominate a leader who’s out in front of nobody?... Maybe our national mindlessness is the very thing that keeps us from turning into one of those smelly European countries full of pseudo-reds and crypto-fascists and greens who dress like forest elves.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)

    All is politics in this capital.
    Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826)

    Politics are for foreigners with their endless wrongs and paltry rights. Politics are a lousy way to get things done. Politics are, like God’s infinite mercy, a last resort.
    —P.J. (Patrick Jake)
