Lahore, Nov 16 (www.pakdestiny.com) Interior Minister Rehman Malik is settling ‘old score’ with former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani by unleashing Federal Investigation Agency on him and his son Abdul Qadir in the Haj scam.
According to sources in PPP, during his four-year tenure Gilani ‘hated Malik most’ and did not allow him run departments under him with impunity. “Gilani not only used to snub him in the cabinet meetings but also complained of him to President Zardari for posing as defacto PM on some occasions because of his close association with the president,” they said.
Once Gilani was shown the door by the Supreme Court for not implementing NRO judgement, it was a blessing in disquise for Rehman Malik. He got a good opportunity to settle the old score with Gilani and paid him with the same coin by sending FIA after him and his family members.
“Zardari has assured Gilani that Mr Malik will not go after him and his sons any more but he gave no assurance to him about any action against Malik,” the source said. (www.pakdestiny.com)
