Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif Monday said that the government was not sincere to create new province in south Punjab.
He said the aim of the government was to spread hatred among the people of Punjab and to extend chaos and unrest in the country.
Nawaz said his party was committed to restore Bahawalpur province and would create new provinces on administrative basis, not on ethnic basis.
The PML-N leader lashed out at the ruling government for bad governance which he claimed caused increase in sufferings of common people of the country.
Nawaz said that his first priority was to save Pakistan.
“If we would have given chance to serve the nation, the condition of the people would be different, the current government has enjoyed five years but did nothing for common man,” he added.
Sharif said that reforms could be brought about and the system can be transformed if the voters would elect sincere, dedicated and honest representatives so that corrupt practices in all fields could be rooted out.
He was of the view that if his party would have run the country, the scenario could have been entirely different.
While claiming credit for the restoration of judiciary, he said that it is the apex court which is initiating suo moto actions against corruption, law and order, extortions and unconstitutional acts.
“We saved the judiciary as the country will be further strengthened with presence of strong institutions,” he claimed.
He said instead of accepting dictation from the United States, he followed policies that were in the larger interests of the country. He stressed for immediate removal of the government, which he accused of indulging in massive corruption.
Nawaz said Pakistan was in the midst of all sorts of problems, adding that agriculture sector had been hit hard by increase in POL and other input prices.
He said the country was being run on borrowing from the State Bank, which was printing new notes to meet the government’s demand. He said this was leading to inflation and more burden on the common man. He said labourers had no job while the poor had been pushed to the wall.
