The other day Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani thundered over the conspiracies being hatched against his democratic elected government but a common Pakistani wants to ask Prime Minister why did he stay inaudible over several machinations on his side of camp which have maligned the democracy like never before. All the below mentioned proceedings are compiled upon the media reports and I invite all readers to add if I have missed some.
