On the other side, the sit-in group has shown enmity with the people by impeding the projects of public welfare.
Shehbaz Sharif said that Niazi and Zardari, who leveled allegations against each others, are now united for the sake of their personal interests. He added that both are two sides of the same coin and Niazi-Zardari hookup has been fully exposed before the nation. He said that defeated political elements have promoted the politics of deceits, falsehood and baseless allegations. The conscious people of Pakistan will totally reject such elements in general elections because a lie has no legs to stand upon.
