MULTAN: We have planned out a strategy to challenge the disqualification of former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani and will soon apprise the party and the people regarding it, said President Asif Ali Zardari on Friday.

Visiting Gilani in Multan, Zardari was reported to be there to address the former prime minister’s concerns regarding the Ephedrine case, removal of officials appointed by him and notices issued to him in the Haj scandal case.

The president assured Gilani of his and the PPP’s support.

During the meeting, Pakistan Seraiki Party’s President Barrister Taj Muhammad Langah informed Zardari about certain legal clauses which can be used to challenge Gilani’s disqualification.

Seraiki province

On queries regarding the creation of a Seraiki province, Zardari informed the party members present at the meeting that the parliament lacks the two-third majority required for the task.

Gilani suggested the president should make Khurshid Shah the head of the commission for the Seraiki commission. He added that the PPP will work to garner the required amount of support for the creation of the province.
