Nawaz says his priority is to save Pakistan not PMship
PML(N) chief Mian Nawaz Sharif has said his priority was to save Pakistan and not becoming Prime Minister. Addressing a big public meeting in Rahim Yar Khan on Thursday, the PML-N Chief warned that if the rulers did not mend their way, the country would suffer unprecedented damage. 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, warning that otherwise the situation would further deteriorate. Nawaz Sharif said Pakistan is in the midst of all sorts of problems. He said agriculture sector has 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 is printing new notes to meet the government demand. He said this is leading to inflation and more burden on the common man. He said the labourer has no job while the poor has been pushed to the wall. The PML-N President wondered over the stand of Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani about the implementation of Supreme Court verdict. He referred to Gilani's question at a students function that if he implements court orders, he would be sent to the gallows and if he refuses, he would be sent to jail for six months. He said how such a person can run the country if he seeks answers of the problems from young students? He said Pakistan needed a leadership which is honest and sincere to ensure its sovereignty and integrity and remarked that one must give personal sacrifice first to put Pakistan on the path of development and prosperity. On this occasion former Minister of State Raees Muneer Ahmad announced to join the PML-N.
