KOT ADDU: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Mian Nawaz Sharif on Friday pledged that if voted to power, the best communication infrastructure would be built in the country, and they would start a bullet train to ply between Peshawar and Karachi.
Addressing a public meeting in Kot Addu‚ Nawaz said unemployed youth would be provided soft loans so that they could start their own businesses and stand at their own feet, adding that they would open 10 banks in Kot Addu to provide soft loans. He said the youth was with his party and if returned to power, they would together reconstruct Pakistan. He said relief would also be provided to farmers by ensuring provision of fertilisers‚ seeds‚ pesticides and diesel to them.
Nawaz Sharif said the people would vote for the PML-N on 11th of May for development and prosperity of the country.The PML-N president said had they not been sent into exile‚ there would not have been an energy crisis. He said Kot Addu would be given the status of a district and Chowk Sarwar Shaheed as Tehsil.
Nawaz said it was a pity that Pakistan had no respect in the world despite being an atomic power. He said in 1999 Pakistan was progressing fast under his government but a military dictator overthrew the elected government and reversed the wheel of progress. “We will rebuild Pakistan with the help of youth and Pakistan will again be on the track of progress.
“Had our government been allowed to continue, Pakistan would have been a different country by now,” he added. Nawaz said he was appealing for votes because he wanted to bring Pakistan out of the crises it was facing.
