LAHORE – PML-N President Nawaz Sharif has said that the nation should be taken into confidence over new local government system in Sindh.Speaking at a ceremony on Tuesday, the chief of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) said that any move that could not satisfy the people was of no use. Nawaz said he didn’t want to respond to Altaf Hussain’s statement against him. Their talks with the MQM after those statements should be considered over, he added.The PML-N chief said that the caretaker prime minister has to be brought in with the consultation between the opposition leader and the outgoing prime minister. “The election commission would have final word in the absence of consensus on caretaker PM,” he added.Nawaz said that PML-N was not a friendly opposition, adding that friendly opposition is not treated in the manner they were treated. He said his party has always been committed to take the country out of darkness of illiteracy, unemployment and lawlessness.The PML-N president said that serious and sober leadership had become dire need of hour. Mocking Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan for his claims of change in a matter of few days, Sharif said these problems cannot be solved in days, it takes years to bring about a change.Explaining their current struggle, Nawaz said his party was not struggling just for the sake of power but for a better future of Pakistan. “We only want power that can help us make Pakistan a better place,” he said. He said that Pakistan would have become Asian tiger if his government had not been toppled in 1999.PML-N’s successful growth reforms were also implemented by India, Nawaz claimed. He said India continued with the developmental work and hence prospered, whereas Pakistan did not as the PML-N government was dissolved.“Pakistan was better than India in every sense back then, our currency was stronger, we had more electric power, our economic growth rate was close to 8% while India’s was around 2% to 3%,” Nawaz stated. “India would look up to Pakistan as our country was fast developing,” he added.Pointing out the problems in Balochistan, the PML-N chief said that the crisis would have not cropped up if PML-N was allowed to complete its tenures. “We had planned to build motorways, schools and hospitals in the province just like other provinces,” he claimed.About the nuclear tests done during his stint in power, Nawaz said the step brought Pakistan on par with India, which had become a nuclear nation earlier. “This made Indian leader Vajpayee come all the way to Pakistan to talk about solving issues through dialogues,” he said.
