Singh showers praise on Gilani


Showering praise on Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has said that he has always regarded Prime Minister Gilani as a man of peace, an Indian news channel reported on Saturday.
On his return from Maldives, he said that he was not putting any blind faith in any one individual. The Bhartiya Janata Party hit out at Manmohan Singh for what the opposition party believe “turning a blind eye to Pakistan’s failure to act against perpetrators of Mumbai attacks.”
In a veiled message to the opposition, the Indian prime minister said he would visit Pakistan only after solid steps were taken by Islamabad on ending cross boarder terrorism. “I believe armed forces of Pakistan are supporting Indo-Pakistan peace process,” he said.
He said India wanted to strengthen hands of the civilian government in Pakistan and that Mr Gilani has clearly understood that one more Mumbai-like attack will be a big setback in the peace process, The Hindu newspaper reported.
