ISLAMABAD: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif advised his brother Nawaz Sharif in an address on Tuesday to consult his party workers over matters instead of ‘those new leaders merely concerned with designation and cars’.
He was addressing the general council of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz workers at Convention Center in Islamabad.
“Some advisers and ministers gave wrong recommendations to Nawaz Sharif as they only loved their designation” he remarked.
“Call party leaders and workers for consultations and make decisions in light of those meetings,” he said.
“If we work along with our workers, no one can harm or threaten us in any way,” Shehbaz Sharif said while advising his elder brother.
Punjab CM said that some political parties severely opposed PML-N by saying that the amendment is being brought for a single person. “Opponents do not have any right to protest as they protested in every nook and corner of the country in the last four years,” he asserted.
Shehbaz notified that the country was plunged into darkness from the past 15 years but Nawaz Sharif eliminated obscurity despite of protests and sit-ins.
He criticized that the country was looted and corruption was done by past governments in several power projects.
He said all the provincial chapters of the PML-N elected Nawaz Sharif as president, leaving no chance for the opposition to show resistance. He said no one opposed the dictator that took over on October 12, 1999 and also introduced Provisional Constitution Order (PCO).
“Is accountability only for the Sharif family?” he said.
On the subject of Nawaz’s re-election as party president Tuesday, the CM Punjab said that the former prime minister was re-elected legally through the power of the parliament.
