Gilani denies inking safe passage deal for Musharraf

     Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has denied inking any 'safe exit' deal to facilitate former President General Pervez Musharraf's safe passage from the country after he stepped down from the Presidency. In an interview to a private television channel, Gilani said: "If there had been such a deal, it would have surfaced by now, as the media is very vibrant today." Gilani also said would be wrong to say that Musharraf has been 'pardoned', as neither he has been convicted by the court of law nor been 'indemnified by parliament'. When asked whether there is any possibility of invoking the Article Six of the Constitution against Musharraf, Gilani reiterated that he was willing to do it if parliament passed a unanimous resolution. "I am for it. We must create history. But at the same time, we should not rock the boat. If there is a unanimous resolution, the whole nation would be together," The Daily Times quoted Gilani, as saying. Commenting on the Baloch issue, he said the government is preparing a package for the insurgency hit province which would include constitutional, administrative and economic reforms.
