Former CM Shahbaz Sharif has said that the promises of a Karachi-Peshawar bullet train and ending power crisis within two years are not election gimmicks but in pledges that the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz intends to fulfill just like the Metro Bus and the Motorway.


He was talking to a PML-N delegation from Sindh here on Tuesday. He also discussed the party’s election strategy in Sindh as well as across Pakistan with the delegation and assured them of the party leadership’s support during the elections.


Shahbaz said that the province of Sindh had suffered the worst Pakistan Peoples Party government’s loot and plunder and even though billions were spent in Sindh on development, the ground realities presented a totally different picture.


He said Karachi, once known as the city of lights, had now turned into a battleground where gangsters and mafias rule the roost.


Street crimes, extortion money and target killings had become common occurrences in the city that’s at the forefront of the country economy.


The former CM pledged that the PML- N would bring peace back to the streets of Karachi if elected to power in the upcoming elections.
