26 August, 2013
MULTAN: Former Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that the existence of 'Punjabi Taliban' had now been confirmed on the government level, contrary to the past practices of denial.
Talking to media here on Sunday, the former premiere said it was not easy for Pakistan People's Party-led coalition government to complete five-year term. He said the then government refrained itself from politics of violence and revenge, ensuring that there were no political prisoners during its whole term.
Gilani said the PPP was enjoying their governments in Gilgit-Baltistan and Sindh.
He congratulated the PPP candidates on winning their seats in the by-election.
