Benazir Bhutto vowed to give 10 million acres of government land to peasants if she is able to drive Pakistani President Zia ul-Haq from power. Bhutto, daughter of former Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, predicted that growing popular opposition will force Zia to relinquish power and call elections as she demands. "I'm confident that the people will pressure the government to hold elections because the internal situation of the country and the social forces are developing so that change is imminent," she said at a news conference.
