PESHAWAR - Former prime minister and senior leader of PPP Syed Yousaf Raza Gillani on Wednesday said their party has no objection over the US-India nuclear deal but they want equal treatment of US for Pakistan as it Washington has with New Delhi.

Talking to media persons at the residence of party’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa General Secretary Humayun Khan, Gilani said that unilateral deals between the US and India could affect the war on terror.

He visited Hamayun to condole with the death of Kulsum Saifullah.

He said after the attack on Salala check-post, his government had asked United States to vacate Shamsi airbase but the incumbent government had so far failed to adopt a clear stand with regard to national interests and security.

Gilani said those who had taunted PPP for fighting on behest of America have now realized that it was Pakistan’s war.

“Time has proved that our policies were right and those who used to criticize us are now following them,” Gillani stated.

The PPP leader dispelled the impression that PPP was playing the friendly opposition and previously PML-N was being dubbed as friendly opposition.

He also said that when PML-N was being dubbed as friendly opposition, Nawaz Sharif had approached courts against him and over Memo Gate issue.

He asked PTI Chief Imran Khan to raise his voice in National Assembly (NA), which is the representative platform of over 180 million people.

About differences in his party, he said that PPP was a major political party and differences in its ranks were not a big issue. However, he denied reports about differences between PPP co-chairmen Asif Ali Zardari and Bilawal Zardari.

To a question about kidnapping of his son, the former premier said that initially there were contacts with Taliban, however, since long there has been no contact. He said that he was informed that his son was kidnapped due to Swat operation.
