New province to be created before elections: Gilani


Former prime minister and Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Senior Vice Chairman Yusuf Raza Gilani on Tuesday said that the new province was a part of party’s manifesto which would be created before the general elections.
Talking to journalists at a local airport, he said that the decision of separate province had been taken after discussing all important issues including economic and political concerns.
He said that Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) was not in favor of the new province and urged people to not fall for their trap.
Moreover, Gilani said that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz
Sharif should desist from instigating people for protests.
To a question, he said that he went to the Supreme Court to file a review petition as he had some objections on the case.
He said he believed that president had immunity and it had been mentioned in the letter.
“In view of national interest, the name of Nawab Salahuddin Abbasi was nominated for caretaker setup in Punjab while Bahawalpur was also mentioned for capital of the province,” he said.
He said that the demand of opposition to change governors of the provinces was illegal as they were the nominees of federal government.
He expressed solidarity with the people of Kashmir and added that his moral and diplomatic support was with the people of Kashmir.
He said that when he was the prime minister, he said he had urged a resolution of all issues with India, including Kashmir, Siachen and others.
To a question about Most Favoured Nation status to India, he said that it pointed to a balance trade with India.
