PML-N not part of deal b/w Musharraf, PPP and Establishment: Rashid
Information Minister was talking to media in Lahore.
Pervaiz Rashid referring to former prime minister Yousaf Raza Gilani’s press conference on Friday, clarified that Gilani did not say Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was taken on board regarding the deal struck between the establishment, the PPP government and the PML-N to give a ‘safe passage’ to Musharraf.
He remarked that PPP had told PML-N to give indemnity to former president Pervez Musharraf but for the first time in the history of Pakistan a parliament refused to give indemnity to a former dictator.
Gilani had said that PML-N should abide by the deal rather than take action against Musharraf.
Information Minister said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan will be among many politicians who will be invited to the government’s Independence Day rally at D-Chowk in Islamabad on August 14.
He said that the PTI chief, the head of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) chief, National Party leader Mir Hasil Khan Bizenjo, Pakhtunkhwa Milli Awami Party chief Mehmood Khan Achakzai, Awami National Party (ANP) chief Asfandyar Wali Khan and Jamiat-e-Ulema Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman are among the politicians who will be invited to the rally.
