Agreements of previous govt main reason behind inflation: Gillani


Says PPP always honoured decision of courts

Former Prime Minister and Senator Syed Yusuf Raza Gillani said that the agreement made by the previous government with International Monetary Fund (IMF) on tough terms and conditions was the main reason of inflation in the country.

Talking to media persons after visiting different mourning procession here on Monday, Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani said that the international agreements are not made with any political party but with the country and the government should honour them.

He said that previous government made agreements on tough term and conditions with International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the incumbent government was bound to fulfill the agreements which resulted into inflation.

Gilani stated that the members of national assembly of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) were not presented before the Speaker Raja Parvez Ashraf for verification of their resignations but they refused to come.

“The PTI MNAs were not participating in assembly session after submitting their resignations then why they are going to contest the by-elections, he questioned.

He said that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) always honored the decision of courts even then when he was disqualified from prime ministership despite the fact that he was an elected prime minister of the country.
