Nawaz Sharif, the leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), claimed on Monday that the coalition government of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) had kept the nation from defaulting, potentially preventing today’s petrol price of Rs 1,000 per litre.
He also emphasised that the PML-N has made a sincere sacrifice to save Pakistan from economic collapse and has suffered the consequences for the sake of the nation during a consultative meeting of his party via video link from London. He expressed confidence that his party would win the upcoming elections.
Furthermore, the PML-N supremo accused former army chief General (retd) Qamar Javed Bajwa, ex-Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) chief General (retd) Faiz Hamid, and former chief justice Mian Saqib Nisar of being responsible for the current state of affairs in the country.
Nawaz acknowledged that while some damages could be overcome in life, others remained insurmountable.
“Today, the poor is craving for bread. Who brought the country to this state,” the senior politician questioned, regretting how people were worried about putting two-time meals on their table.
Hamza maintained that the nation should ask the question of why inflation happened after Nawaz Sharif’s tenure. The PML-N supremo gave relief to people, then who brought miseries to them, he asked.
Meanwhile, former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif left London for Pakistan on Monday after spending a month there. He held multiple meetings with Nawaz Sharif during his stay in London.
