KARACHI: Former Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gillani said on Friday that former President General (retd) Pervez Musharraf resigned after certain promises were made.
Speaking to the media Gillani said during talks with the Establishment it was decided that Musharraf would be provided a honourable exit upon resigning.
“How can a powerful military president of the country resign without the support of the Establishment. If the establishment supported this they must have also received some promises.”
Gillani added that promises made during these talks should not be disregarded, informing the media that the PML-N was also part of the process.
Gillani said that action being taken against the former president by the PML-N was not appropriate. “If a commitment had been made it should be honoured by the PML-N.”
The former prime minister stressed that he was not in favour of Musharraf but was only informing of commitments which had been made.
