Gilani vows to continue policy of reconciliation in Pak
Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has expressed his resolve to continue his party’s reconciliation policy to make the country’s Parliament and democratic institutions stronger.
Gilani also said that the country would not be able to afford mid-term or general elections in the prevailing circumstances, and stressed that the PPP would continue to play its role effectively whether it was in the government or in the opposition.
“Politics is not a matter of one day, but a day to day affair, and we will continue to adhere to the issue-oriented politics,” the Daily Times quoted Gilani, as saying.
“If the PPP loses majority in Punjab, it would prefer to sit on opposition benches instead of resorting to horse trading to gain majority. We are totally against change of heart or horse trading,” he added.
The Prime Minister further said that the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) had accepted the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) agenda with all sincerity, and had called upon the PML-N to de-link it from the Punjab government.
“Punjab issue should not be bracketed with vital national policy which encompasses all issues, including those mentioned in the N-League agenda,” Gilani said.
