LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-N President Nawaz Sharif has warned that any delay in the holding of elections will take the country closer to more devastation and destruction.
Talking to a group of party leaders at his Raiwind residence here on Sunday, Nawaz said failure and corruption by the ruling elite have brought a bad name to democracy. He said the government was not ready to follow the Constitution and the law and it was bent upon taking decisions according to its own free will which is weakening the institutions. Nawaz said loadshedding has pushed the country at verge of collapse. He said the energy shortage problem would only be solved when corruption would be rooted out. He strongly criticised increase in petroleum product prices.
He said the country was passing through times of unprecedented corruption but rulers were not ready for self-correction. He made it clear that the PML-N would not allow any delay in the elections.
