JARANWALA: Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz’s (PMLN) president Nawaz Sharif has on Saturday warned that masses would take notice if he is removed from party’s presidency.
He was addressing a rally in Jaranwala. While taking a jibe at PAT-led joint opposition’s rally on Lahore’s Mall road, Sharif urged supporters to ask those chanting slogans of Naya Pakistan what they have given to people and country. “I was ousted over not receiving a fictional salary from my son”, Sharif taunted and lauded large number of attendants in the rally.
“Same passion will serve as a base for referendum in 2018 polls”, added Sharif. “Pakistan was on the path of rapid progress in 1999 when Musharraf declared martial law and obliterated uplift process. He who made Pakistan an atomic power was exiled”, stated ousted Sharif
While apprising attendants about sorry state of affairs in country back then in 2007, Sharif stated that PMLN-led federal government has flushed menace of terrorism, curbed unemployment and put country on path of progress again.
Linking current political upheaval to his ouster, Sharif claimed chaos is once again returning to Pakistan. “Drone attacks were halted during my tenure. They [drone attacks] have begun once again”, said Sharif.
Sharif made it vehemently clear that verdict of masses would be the conclusive one. Sharif urged stalwarts to lend support for his justice-restoration movement. “I would request Shehbaz Sharif to make Jaranwala a district. He (Shehbaz Sharif) has thoroughly changed Punjab by working day and night at a stretch”, asserted PMLN’s president. After the success of metro bus projects in Lahore, Rawalpindi and Multan, similar projects will also be launched in Faisalabad, Sialkot, Gujranwala and all other major towns of Punjab, said the former premier.
Sharif overtly stated that he would not allow holiness of vote to be tampered [by opponents]. “Go and ask people of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) about accomplishments of the provincial government there… what have they (Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) given them other than false promises and incompetent governance,” he stated, taking a jibe at his main political rivals.
