PML-N’s campaign regrettable for judiciary: Gilani

Gilani says the PML-N’s recent campaign is a disrepute to judiciary.

The people who are igniting the issue have nothing to do with the rule of law; rather their mission is to have their favourite decisions, said Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani.

He said that there was no law of contempt of the court in the court; only I am being put on trial.

Addressing a welcome ceremony hosted by the PPP London, he said that the contempt of court accusations should be levelled in a sequence. The people who are leading the campaign for restoration of judiciary only want to have their favourite verdicts.

There is no law of contempt of the court in country; only my personality is being defamed by putting me on trial, he said.

He said that the government of Punjab was out to rebel against the government, adding that the president and the prime minister can be ousted only through constitutional means.

PM Gilani said that days were gone for entering the government through backdoors and the constitution would be defended at every cost, he concluded.
