Yousuf Raza Gilani Islamabad, Oct 18 (IANS) Pakistan Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has urged the country’s media to focus on educational and health issues instead of chasing politicians.

Gilani Monday told the media to move away from their “sole craving for political issues”.

“You shouldn’t focus only on politicians, or when there will be new elections, or who will be the new prime minister, or whether army chief will take over or not. Instead you should promote educational issues,” Gilani said while addressing an award-distribution ceremony at the National University of Science and Technology here.

The prime minister said education and health are the government’s top priorities.

“It is immaterial whether I remain here or not. It is our new generation which you should project and encourage,” Associated Press of Pakistan quoted Gilani as saying.
