Latest Pakistan News > Islamabad News – Contempt Case Updates > Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Monday that the Sharifs were trying to destabilise democracy.
Speaking on the floor of the Senate, Prime Minister Gilani said he would not listen to the ‘Sharif Court’s’ and those calling him a convict should know that he has a full right to an appeal.
Gilani said he was not the target rather the issue was the NRO. “I am not the beneficiary why pick on me.”
The Prime Minister clarified that the reason he was being targeted was because he was protecting the constitution. “If I don’t protect the constitution than I am the most popular person in the country,” Gilani added.
Prime Minister Gilani claimed that the PML-N was threatened by Imran Khan and feared that a vacuum would be created if he announced a long march before them.
Commenting on calls for his resignation, Gilani said he had no desire to remain in power and he should be de-notified if he was to be removed.
“We don’t have a lust for power. We want to follow the constitution.”
