Prime Minister Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani Tuesday said it was preferable to sit in opposition rather than indulge in a game of interests and politics, contrary to the trust reposed by the people. Talking to Syed Riaz Hussain Pirzada and Jamshed Dasti, members of the National Assembly, who met him separately at his Parliament House Chamber, Prime Minister Gilani said that since coming to power the government had taken every step for the promotion of democratic values and would continue its stance of principled and issue-based politics in future. It is preferable to sit in opposition rather than indulging in politics, in contravention to the trust reposed by the people and get involved in the game of interests, Gilani said. The Prime Minister said that the new cabinet had been selected carefully by following the principle of public support and all its members were directly elected members of the Parliament. He said that size of the Cabinet was reduced to practically demonstrate seriousness of the government towards the implementation of the 18th Amendment in letter and spirit.
