LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-N President Nawaz Sharif has said politics has certain norms and guiding principles and it is aimed at serving the people and the country, but Pakistan People’s Party and its allies have transformed politics into an act of self-service.
He said nothing has been done to end price-hike, unemployment and loadshedding and resolve serious issues. People are highly perturbed while the wheel of economy has stopped moving. He said people, in the forthcoming elections, will reject those who have been engaged in the politics of self-service and corruption, during the last four and a half years.
He was talking to office-bearers and workers of Pakistan Muslim League-N district Gujrat, inLahore Tuesday. Those who met Nawaz Sharif included Raja Ashfaq Sarwar, Malik Hanif Awan, Jaffar Iqbal, Farrukh Majeed, Col (retd) Parwaz, Tanvir Gondal, Malik Jameel MNA, Syed Noor Hassan Shah, Ch Raza Mutta and Haji Nasir, who assured him that they would work day and night to further strengthen PML-N.
Nawaz Sharif said progress and prosperity of Pakistan is the manifesto and mission of PML-N which, Insha-Allah, will be achieved. He said the strength of PML-N is the strength of Pakistan. He said the PML-N was given two half tenures of governance, but despite that the world is witness to its unprecedented performance and national service. He said if Allah provided the PML-N with another opportunity, it would again commence its journey towards progress and prosperity from the point where it was cut short by undemocratic forces.
Nawaz Sharif said the PPP came into power for the fifth time but resolving national issues had never been its agenda. He said the attention of PPP government had been focussed only on corruption and confrontation with the judiciary. Nawaz said instead of controlling loadshedding, the PPP government aggravated it further. He said there was a contradiction between words and deeds of politicians, but people would never believe in their false promises in the forthcoming general elections.
