PESHAWAR: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PMLN) president and Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday made it overtly clear that Nawaz Sharif was his president in past and would remain so in the future.
He was addressing workers’ convention in Peshawar. Sharif apprised attendants that PMLN had constructed motorway from Mardan to Peshawar. “Nawaz Sharif’s vision was behind construction of motorway. Had there been no motorway, vehicles would have been stuck in long queues on GT road”, asserted Sharif.
Sharif also took a jibe at ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and its chief Imran Khan. “I was thinking that change would have arrived but there is nothing as such in Peshawar despite Imran Khan’s slogans”, taunted Sharif while adding, “Business of masses have been ruined in Peshawar”.
Keeping verbal onslaught up, junior Sharif stated that Imran Khan—who used to denigrate Lahore Metro Bus project—had himself introduced Metro Bus project in Peshawar after five years. Sharif inquired stalwarts whether a liar can serve Pakistan.
“If opportunity is given to PMLN in KPK in general polls 2018, we will bring KPK and Peshawar at par with Punjab and Lahore respectively”, vowed Sharif. He reiterated that politics of PTI revolved around sit-ins, conspiracies, civil disobedience and obliterating economy.
While commenting on the ongoing military operation against miscreants, Sharif vowed to get rid from menace of terrorism soon.
KP PML-N President Engr Amir Muqam and Deputy Speaker National Assembly Murtaza Javed Abbasi also addressed on the occasion.
Federal Minister for Religious Affairs Sardar Muhammad Youaf, Punjab Minister for Religious Affairs and Aukaf Zaeem Qadri, PM Advisor on Civil Aviation, Sardar Mehtab Ahmed Khan and PML-N KP and Fata leadership were present. The workers raised full throated slogans of PML-N and Shehbaz Sharif ‘Zindabad’. NNI/INP
