LAHORE: Former foreign minister and Pakistan People's Party (PPP) leader Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the time had come to expose the rotten eggs within the PPP, DawnNews reported. While speaking to ‘Meet The Press’ in Lahore, Qureshi called on Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to take the people of Pakistan into confidence and tell them the truth about the Raymond Davis case.

He said that the PM should call a meeting of the parliamentary party of PPP and other coalition parties and keep all the facts before them. He said that this meeting should take place before the president's address on March 22.

Qureshi said that after the release of Raymond Davis, the US drone attack in North Waziristan was a gift to the Pakistani nation. He said that the manner in which the Davis case was resolved internationally gave the message that Pakistanis can be purchased at will.

He said that the people of Pakistan want change in the manner which national affairs are being run.
