A good gimmick by Yousuf Raza Gilani to announce resigning from Opposition Leader position in the Senate to down play he alleged role in the passage of the State Bank bill.
Gilani has however not tendered his resignation to the Senate Secretariat. He will send this to the PPP chairman.
Gilani was among nine opposition senators who smartly skipped last Friday’s Senate session to indirectly help the government to pass State Bank of Pakistan (Amendment) Bill with a margin of ONE VOTE.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi who is a rival of Gilani in Multan said that Gilani is playing games on his announcement of tendering resignation.
So what Shah thinks that Gilani is serious in resigning…if so then he must be living in a fool’s paradise. Isn’t he.
In the Senate on Monday Gilani said “some turncoats” a reference to Information Minister Fawad Chaudhry and Mr Shah” are trying to accuse him of helping the government. “This is ridiculous,” he said
Gilani seems to be upset after fingers are pointed at him for apparently helping the PTI government at the behest of “someone”.
There must be what Shakespeare said “a method in his madness”. If this is the case then who gonna investigate it within the party.
The expected response to Gulani resignation announcement will be from PPP chairman is that of “he is our loyal worker and we trust him…so no acceptance of his resignation.” PAK DESTINY
