LAHORE: Former prime minister Yusuf Raza Gilani has asked why is former prime minister Nawaz Sharif crying over his accountability when he was advocating the same for others?

Gilani, senior leader of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) who met fellow party leader Mian Manzoor Wattoo here on Thursday, said the PPP wanted the next general elections to be held on time. He said his party had always respected the constitutional institutions and protected them but Sharifs were degrading them. He said the PPP fought for democracy and never said anything against the judiciary; rather, it obeyed the court verdicts meekly. He said that Sharifs’ attitude towards the court decisions was shameful. –Staff Reporter
