GUJRAT: Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Saturday declared that Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) had made a blunder in its first government in 1972 by nationalizing tens of thousands of schools and colleges in the country.

“Yes it was a wrong move, and we cannot move forward without admitting our mistake”, the prime minister said about the decision of the party’s founding leader late Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto.

Gilani in his remarks also offered Mr Sharif all-out support for creating the right atmosphere for politics of reconciliation.

He was addressing a ceremony to mark the 68th death anniversary of Nawab Sir Fazal Ali, the founder of the Zamindar College Gujrat.
