RAHIM YAR KHAN – Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif said Monday that PPP government was not sincere to create new provinces and federal government was making just a ‘Mansooba’ (plan) instead of a ‘Sooba’ (provice).
“I do not take politics as politics but a worship,” said Nawaz.
Sharif said he was in Rahim Yar Khan on the invitation of new member of PML-N Makhdoom Ahmad Alam Anwar who quit PML-Q and joined Nawaz League. He said despite enjoying full five-year term the PPP government gave nothing to the people of Pakistan and masses were facing multiple problems. Had PML-N enjoyed power in the Centre for five years, situation would have been entirely different now, he claimed adding, if elected he would give loans to the skilled youths of Pakistan. Once in power, the PML-N government would serve the people and win their hearts, Sharif maintained.
He said if President Zardari would pay heed to problems of the masses for an hour daily there would be no 18-hour load-shedding of electricity in the country and condition of the people would have been different now.
Sharif said taxes collected from the people were filling the pockets of ministers. He said People's Party took part in elections with the slogan ‘Roti Kapra aur Makaan’ but people could not get even ‘Roti’ and ‘Kapra’. They snatched right of living form the poor people of Pakistan, he added. Sharif vowed that he would never let down people of Pakistan.
“I would not compromise on the sovereignty of the country and will work day and night to change the condition of the people,” he claimed.
Sharif further said that his government would not pay heed to the unfair demands of America in the best interest of the public and country. He added that service of the people was his first priority. He said he used to take political advice from his father but some elements did not like that. He said when his father died, dictator Musharraf did not allow him to come to Pakistan and participate in his funerals. He claimed credit for the restoration of judiciary which was now taking sue moto notices against the corruption, law and order and unconstitutional acts went to his party.
He stressed for the immediate removal of the government accusing it of doing unprecedented corruption. Sharif added that federal government destroyed the agriculture sector in Pakistan by increasing rate of commodities related to the agricultural sector.
