LAHORE - Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam (PML-Q) Chief Chaudhry Shujat Hussain has vowed to support the federal government for economic betterment of the country.

Addressing the party’s executive committee session, the PML-Q Chief said that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif was leading the country in the right direction. “He is focusing on economic stability rather than carrying out victimising campaigns,” he added.

Chaudhry Shujat added that they have to prioritise the economy over politics. The country will progress only when inflation and poverty are controlled, he added. Shujat’s son Chaudhry Shafay Hussain said that the party head had always prioritised the nation’s interest over his own interest.
