Islamabad, July 20 (Pak Destiny) The Pakistan People’s Party circles are suspecting Yousuf Raza Gilani of joining hands with the establishment over Musharraf issue.
The party sources told Pak Destiny that the former prime minister’s statement that PML-N government should ‘honour’ its commitment to give safe passage to Gen (R) Pervez Musharraf is not taken well in the party. Many senior PPP and PML-N leaders insist that neither the PPP nor PML-N had entered into any agreement with Musharraf for his safe exit.
“We suspect that Mr Gilani have joined hands with the establishment on Musharraf issue. The establishment and Musharraf are the beneficiaries of Gilani’s statement,” a senior PPP leader told Pak Destiny. He said there has been a lot of talk on Gilani’s statement and many in the party have started suspecting that he has boarded the establishment’s boat.
On the other hand, Gilani has refused withdraw his statement saying the PML-N should let Musharraf go abroad following in the spirit of the agreement with the establishment. Lets see if Aasef Ali Zardari takes notice of Gilani’s statement. –Pak Destiny
