Imran tried to isolate Pakistan, says Gilani

MULTAN (APP): Former Prime Minister and central leader Pakistan People’s Party Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani said on Monday that Imran Khan tried to isolate Pakistan from rest of the world. While talking to media persons along with Chief of Pakistan Democratic Movement Moulana Fazal ur Rehman, at Jamia Qasim ul Aloom, Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani recalled when he was prime minister, he used to receive ciphers.

Describing his purpose to visit Qasim ul Aloom, Syed Yusuf Raza Gillan remarked that he came to seek formal support from Moulana Fazal ur Rehman. Although, being chief of PDM, Moulana Fazal ur Rehman was supporting PDM’s candidate Ali Musa Gillani in bye elections in NA 157. Responding to a question, Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani observed that foreign funding case was very much clear. PTI concealed bank accounts. PTI always leveled allegations on others, however foreign funding proved against itself (PTI), said Gilani.
To another question, Gilani remarked that IK should not discuss the issue of appointment of Army Chief. It is a prestigious office and development will occur as per law, he added.

Talking on the occasion, Moulana Faza ur Rehman stated that there was consensus among PDM to support the runner up party in bye-elections. He however said that JUI F and all parties of PDM were supporting Syed Ali Musa Gilani.
The appointment of Army Chief will be done as per constitution and PM will decide it on merit by following the law, said Fazal ur Rehman. Fazal ur Rehman. He however, added that Imran Khan should not dictate on that matter. The general elections will be held on time as the incumbent government will complete its term, he expressed.
