KARACHI: President Asif Ali Zardari has expressed grave concern and condemned the kidnapping of Ali Haider Gilani, the son of former Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani, and PPPP candidate for PP200 in Multan.

The President, who also called Yousuf Raza Gilani a short while ago, described the kidnapping of Ali Haider Gilani as a most reprehensible act of a cowardly enemy. Spokesperson to the President Senator Farhatullah Babar said that the President also called upon the relevant government agencies to get into action to recover the kidnapped Gilani safely and bring the culprits to book.

The President said that the progressive democratic parties had already expressed their serious apprehensions about the militants’ threats and had called upon the Election Commission and the government to take appropriate measures so that the elections were not hijacked by the extremists.

The President said that democratic forces would not be deterred by such cowardly acts and would continue to fight the militants and extremists to the finish and make the ongoing process of democratic transition a success.
