MULTAN (APP) - Parliamentary Leader of the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) in Senate, Syed Yusuf Raza Gilani criticized the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), saying that it was destabilizing the country and eroding its economy.

Addressing a news conference at Multan Press Club on Friday, he stated that the PTI chairman was throwing the country into chaos and the verdict on the foreign funding case proved that the PTI is an imported party while Mr Khan’s narrative is a pack of lies.

He noted that the government would come into action if the PTI made inroads into Islamabad for a long march followed by a sit-in. "On one hand, the PTI MNAs had resigned from National Assembly and on the other, it was contesting in the by-election," the former prime minister said, adding that a vote of no-confidence against Imran Khan was a good step.

He recalled a number of development an infrastructure projects carried out in Multan on demands of traders including international airport, construction of Head Muhammad Wala bridge and setting up of educational institutions during his government in 2008.

Gilani thanked the leaders of Qaumi Ittehad for announcing to support the PDM-backed candidate and his son, Ali Musa Gilani in NA-157 the by-election.

Local leaders of PPP and traders were present on the occasion.
