PML-N Senator Zafar Iqbal Jhagra had the Pakistan Government asked about the secret agreement between Pervez Musharraf and the US regarding Pakistan s cooperation in the war against terror.

According to sources, on the occasion, the government faced severe criticism for allegedly pursuing Musharrafs policies and was asked to reshape them according to the will of the people. The minister also did not agree with the view that the government was pursuing Musharrafs policies, saying the present government consulted parliament unlike the previous regime, which was run by one man.

In total around 46 questions were asked, out of which 41 were answered by Sherry Rehman. PM Gilani himself answered the questions of Senator S M Zafar and three other MPs. (ANI)
