Islamabad, Dec. 11 (ANI): Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has reiterated that India is interfering in Pakistan through Afghanistan, and added that he himself had asked his Indian counterpart Dr. Manmohan Singh to refrain from doing so.

Talking to media persons on the sidelines of a function here, Gilani said he has already discussed New Delhi's involvement in Pakistan with Dr. Singh during their meeting in Sharm-el-Sheikh (Egypt) earlier this year.

"Fact was already brought to notice in writing with the joint statement issued after my meeting with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in Sharm-el-Sheikh," The Nation quoted Gilani, as saying.

Responding to a question regarding the Interior Ministry's claims of having 'concrete evidence' regarding India's involvement in fanning insurgency in the country, particularly in Balochistan, Gilani said : "As far as the evidence is concerned, it is the government and military's prerogative to when and where provide them."

He also rejected the notion of a threat to his government, saying the people of the country have given the PPP a mandate to rule for five years.

"We have been given the mandate of five years and others should wait for this term to complete," Gilani said. (ANI)
