Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousuf Raza Gilani states he is not afraid
The Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousuf Raza Gilani has recently given a statement in which he has said that he is not scared of anyone. The statement was made in reference to being sent to jail as a political prisoner for being held responsible for contempt
of court charges.
The Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousuf Raza Gilani expressed his views on the matter by giving the following statements while talking to reporters after the 75th Convocation of Kinnaird College for Women in Lahore: “I will give more freedom to media. There
are two reasons for it. First, when journalists criticise us, our sins are washed off. Second, the criticism takes us to further heights. “We completed four years in power while crossing the river of fire. A constitutional requirement will be fulfilled which
has never been fulfilled before. For the first time in history, President Asif Ali Zardari will address the joint session of the parliament for the fifth time. He will give the policy statement in his address, but I would like to reveal that we will give relief
to the people in the upcoming budget.”
The Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousuf Raza Gilani was asked by the Supreme Court of Pakistan to write to the Swiss probe in order to re start an investigation in which the President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari was named for being involved in a money laundering
case along with his deceased wife Benazir Bhutto. However, the Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousuf Raza Gilani did not comply with the orders of the Supreme Court stating that the President of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari enjoyed complete immunity both within and
outside the country.
The case which the Supreme Court of Pakistan has been urging the government of the country ruled by the Pakistan People’s Party to re start came to a stop by the signing of the National Reconciliation Ordinance during the time that the President of the country
was Gen. (retd) Pervez Musharraf. However, the apex court of the country had deemed the NRO as illegal which in effect called for the re starting of the investigation.
