PML-N, PTI differences will not benefit PPP in elections: Gilani

Forces plotting against government will not succeed, says former prime minister.


August 22, 2012

MULTAN: Former prime minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Tuesday that differences between Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) would not benefit the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the next elections.

Talking to APP before leaving for Lahore, he said there would be no clash among institutions if they work “within their constitutional limits”, adding that forces plotting against the government would not succeed.

Gilani also categorically ruled out the notion that differences between Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) would benefit the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) in the next elections.

“Everyone should not forget the fact that all opposite forces were united against Abdul Qadir Gilani in recent by-polls in NA-151 constituency, but nobody could dent the PPP’s vote bank,” he said.

@Musa: There is famous saying that the Rome was not built in a day. To do something is different and to say some is different things. Our society is plagued by multiple problems religious/ethnic divisions so no body change the present system over the days. We have complicated legal system beside many related issues.Above all the Imran Khan represents Elite class he does carries the revolutionary programme with him. So we should not attach to much from PTI .

@AS: So far I do not see any strong alliance of PML N with other major parties in the country whereas the PPP led alliance has its representation in all the four province. it will be very uphill task for the PML N to sweep in the next general elections. Similarly is the case with the PTI which is not very familiar in the rural areas.
