Country’s fate will change as Nawaz Sharif has come: Shehbaz Sharif
Lahore: (Sano News) Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif said Saturday that unemployment and poverty would then end in the country and its fate would change because Nawaz Sharif had returned home.
Addressing the PML-N rally at Minar-e-Pakistan, Shehbaz Sharif said: “I pay tribute to those who came to welcome Nawaz Sharif. Nawaz Sharif is the name of struggle and passion.”
Shehbaz Sharif said that Nawaz Sharif had suffered a lot, but he had never lost patience.
“Never in the history of Pakistan has a bigger rally been held at Minar-e-Pakistan than this. God willing! Nawaz Sharif’s return to Pakistan will end poverty and unemployment in the country,” he expressed optimism.
“Nawaz Sharif has come. Now the fate of the country will change,” he added.
He said that Nawaz Sharif had built Pakistan, adding that he had served in prisons for the nation.
Shehbaz said that Nawaz had rejected the US offer of $5 billion and made the country a nuclear power, but he did not accept any pressure.
Earlier, former prime minister and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif reached Islamabad from Dubai after four years in a chartered plane.
“It is a matter of concern why the situation has reached this stage. Things are bad. We have to fix these things ourselves. We are the people of May 28, not May 9,” he said while talking to the media at Dubai Airport.
Nawaz said that he was happy to return to Pakistan after four years, adding that the conditions in the country were not as good as they were in 2017.
“The country’s conditions would have been better today. Instead of moving forward, Pakistan was pushed backwards,” he lamented.
He said that cases against him had caused damage to the country.
“We should not lose hope. It is very disturbing to see the situation in Pakistan. Pakistan had bid farewell to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The country should have been among great nations,” he emphasised.
“Our priority regarding elections is what the election commission will say. What the election commission says will be my priority. I hope the election commission will conduct transparent elections. We are ready for the election. Only the election commission can make the best decision regarding elections,” he added.
“My heart is very sad to see the situation in Pakistan,” he said.
