LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-N President Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said that the entire population of Sindh should have been taken into confidence on the provincial issue of SPLGO while the interim set-up will be formed after consultation between the Opposition Leader and Government.
"What's the advantage of such an action that fails to satisfy the people of Sindh," Nawaz Sharif regretted while addressing a gathering here.
Dispelling the impression of being a friendly opposition, he said: "Had it been so then 'Zardari Sahab' would not have treated the 'friendly opposition' the way he did."
He said PML-N always strived to pull the country out of the darkness and still fighting the battle for 'principles and not for power'.
"The interim governemnt will be formed after a consultation between the Opposition Leader and Government," he believed. However, he warned, if a unanimous resolution not reached on the matter of caretaker set-up, it would be referred to the Election Commission of Pakistan.
Recalling the days of his rule, the PML-N Chief said the then Indian premier Vajpayee visited Pakistan during his government and expressed willingness to resolve all contentious issues including that of Kashmir. "What conspiracy were we trying to hatch that our government had to be dissolved?" he questioned.
With reference to his party's talks with Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), Nawaz Sharif ruled out further negotiations with it, saying after the kind of statements had been issued by Altaf Hussain lately, whatever 'negotiations were held with them were enough'.
