Punjab govt’s ‘long march’ will amount to treason, warns Gilani

Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Tuesday said no province could launch a long march against the federal government because it was unconstitutional and unjustified and it would amount to be treason.
He was speaking in a TV programme “Prime Minister Online” jointly telecast by PTV and Samaa TV. Replying to a question regarding the long march announced by the Punjab government, the prime minister said such act could be considered as “treason” as it would be a step of the provincial government against the federal government. “It is totally unacceptable,” he added.
Referring to the attitude of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leaders, he said they had no principles. The PML-N and the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) are making statements without any justification against the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), he added.“I have full support of all the coalition partners and the long march will not be supported by other political parties,” he said. He said, when he was summoned by the Supreme Court for the verdict in contempt of court case against him, he was mentally prepared to go to Adiala Jail. The premier said the sentence was just for few seconds as it was till rising of the court and the whole process was completed in just five to six minutes.
