RAHIM YAR KHAN: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said on Saturday that problems of the country can not be solved until the creation of the Seraiki province, DawnNews reported.

Addressing a public meeting in Rahim Yar Khan, PM Gilani said “The speculations are prevalent that PPP was instigating people for Seraiki province but our party is just manifesting people’s need.”

Adding to it he said that without the creation of Seraiki province, people would remain deprived of their rights.

“Media has created awareness in the contemporary times that people are no more duped by the conspiring elements,” he said.

Criticizing the Punjab government, Gilani said that if the provincial government gets a chance it will topple Pakistan People’s Party’s (PPP) government in no time.

Gilani said that conspiracies are being hatched to weaken the PPP since its inception.

“The government is facing a lot of pressure but I will not back out from my mission even if I were sent to the gallows,” he said.

Speaking in reference to the contempt of court case, the prime minister said, “If I abandon my party and President Asif Ali Zardari now, the same people will glorify me.”

Since our party had restored constitution, we highly regard it and also respect the institutions, he added.
