PM wants end of governor-rule in Punjab

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has said he is also against the imposition of governor-rule in Punjab.

Speaking in the Senate of Pakistan here on Monday, Gilani said confrontation between political forces of Punjab and Sindh would harm democratic process in the country. The pm said the PPP has rendered great sacrifices for freedom of expression and restoration of judiciary. He urged all political forces to work together for socio-economic turnaround in Pakistan.

Gilani said the PML-Q has to play a pivotal role in Punjab and political parties should respect each other’s mandate. He termed the government a ‘musical chair’ saying that any party clinching majority in Punjab should have right to form the government.

The prime minister said the government had no objection to lawyers’ long march, however, he maintained it should be peaceful.
