“Our politics of reconciliation will continue in the greater interest of the country. The present government has no grudge against any party or the individual,” he said while addressing the media at the mausoleum of Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, where he offered Fateha and laid a floral wreath on the graves of party leaders including former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

“Democracy is not linked with personalities but their philosophy and how their vision is applied. No one can stop the continuity of democracy for which Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) has given many sacrifices,” said the prime minister.

The prime minister said that he and his colleagues would exercise their capabilities in the best possible way to improve the law and order situation and resolve the energy crisis which was the top priority of the government.

“Today Yousuf Raza Gilani is no more the prime minister, but democracy is here and now his place his taken by a middle class individual. I assure you that all conspiracies against democracy will be foiled,” he said.

Later, Ashraf arrived in Karachi for the first time as prime minister and offered Fateha at the mausoleum of Quaid-e-Azam Mohammed Ali Jinnah to pay homage to the Founder of the Nation. The mausoleum was closed for general public due to security reasons on the occasion. He also met Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ibad Khan and discussed with him the law and order situation especially the recent incidents of targeted killings in Karachi.
