Former Prime Minister of Pakistan Yousuf Raza Gilani has been stopped from leaving the country. He has been accused of corruption. On Tuesday, he reached Lahore Airport to fly to South Korea. But the security forces did not give him entry at the airport. The security forces argued that your name is in 'no-fly' list, so you cannot leave the country. After this incident, Pakistan's politics has once again come into limelight.
According to Pakistan's Central Investigation Agency, the Pakistan People's Party leader and former PM Yousuf Raza Gilani reached the Allama Iqbal Airport in Lahore on Tuesday evening. He had to go to South Korea to attend a conference. When he arrived at the immigration counter, he was told that he could not go on the trip, because his name is in the no-fly list. On the order of the Home Ministry, Gilani's name was put in the black list.
Opposition Pakistan People's Party fluttered on this attitude with the country's former PM On behalf of the party it was said that Gilani is being presented in court continuously in connection with the case against him. Yousuf Raza Gilani said, "There was no point in putting my name in the no-fly list. I was not fleeing the country. Prime Minister Imran Khan's only agenda is to target political opponents.”
Gilani also said that the ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government should have informed me about blacklisting my name. He said this decision of the Imran government is illegal and also said that he will challenge this decision.
The former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani is accused in many cases of corruption. Last week, the anti-corruption court in Islamabad was appealed for exemption from personal appearance, but the court rejected his plea. This case is to misinterpret advertising contracts to a private company. Gilani is alleged to have misused the authority in giving this contract, causing a loss of Rs 129.07 million to the national treasury.
Yousuf Raza Gilani has been the Prime Minister of Pakistan from 2008 to 2012. In 2012, the Supreme Court declared him disqualified, after which he had to leave the chair. Let us tell you that another Prime Minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, is facing serious charges of corruption. He had to go to jail before the general elections last year. However, after being convicted, he had to leave the PM's chair.
