MULTAN – Former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Wednesday lamented that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif did not utter a single word on Model Town tragedy.
In an interview with a private TV channel, he said that Nawaz Sharif played a dirty game against him in the parliament. “I wish that Nawaz Sharif would have respected the supremacy of the parliament when I was disqualified,” he said.
To a question, he said that the prime minister wasted too much time to resolve current political crisis. “We have always supported democracy, law and constitution,” he stated. About the prime minister’s speech, Gilani was of the view that Nawaz Sharif should not undermine state institutions.
He said that he had not wasted a single second and stepped down after the Supreme Court’s ruling. The former prime minister also said that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif should have resigned after the Model Town incident.
