ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Thursday said he never supported any fake degree holder. He was addressing the media at the PM House in Islamabad.

Describing his stance on the President’s trip to the UK following anti-Pakistan remarks and prevailing devastating situation caused by floods in the country, Gilani said President Zardari would have been criticised even if the floods hadn’t happened.

The PM also clarified that no ISI delegation was scheduled to visit Britain.

Talking on MPA Raza Haider’s assassination, PM Gilani said a high-level probe is underway to reveal the main culprits of the attack. He also urged that comments and blame-game should be avoided until the inquiry is complete.

    Only in Pakistan a Prime MInister who addresses a public meeting in support of a fake degree holder can have the face to now deny his support. Either the people are being taken for a ride or the Prime Minister thinks they are naive. Recommend
