LAHORE: Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has challenged Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) to bring a no-confidence motion against him and impeach the president, Geo News reported.
"If anyone has the courage to call for a no-confidence motion against me or call for the president's impeachment, they should do so," Gilani said.
The premier was talking to media after a meeting with PML-Q leadership at the residence of Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain.
Prime Minister Gilani also called on the PML-N to resign from the assemblies before they speak of a Long March.
PM Gilani said that decision to reopen Nato supply routes has not been taken yet and the invitation to Chicago summit was unconditional
The premier agreed with the formula floated by Chaudhry Shujaat to end the loadshedding.
Why provinces are not producing electricity and blaming the Centre for the electricity shortage, the prime minister questioned.
Fifth budget from a democratic government would be an historic achievement. We have set priorities for the next fiscal year that includes end to loadshedding, more employment, no new taxes and relief to agriculture sector and poor segments.
PM Gilani said the court has not disqualified him. He was convicted for the act that was legal and constitutional. 'The prime minister has immunity on actions taken in discharge of official duties.'
PML-Q chief Chaudhry Shujaat said Yousuf Raza Gilani is still the prime minister and those who deny the fact had themselves attacked the apex court earlier.
