- PML-N president criticises NAB for pressurising his party candidates
WAZIRABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-N President Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday said that people would again put the country on road to progress and development on July 25 by casting vote in the favour of PML-N.
Addressing a public meeting in connection with the election campaign here, he said that his party executed a number of development projects, besides upgrading health and education sectors in Punjab. He said that the former prime minister had ended load-shedding, added 11,000 megawatt electricity to the national grid, constructed motorways and launched the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project, but he was sent to jail on July 13.
The PML-N president said that former prime minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, leaving his ill wife, returned to Pakistan for the love of the people and the country. He assured the public that Nawaz Sharif was not involved in corruption. “I am thankful to the people who came out of their homes at roads on July 13 to welcome their beloved leader Nawaz Sharif,” he said.
He said that the welcome rally was peaceful but the caretaker Punjab government registered cases against the PML-N leaders. The PML-N government had eliminated terrorism, besides restoring peace in the country, he said, adding that it also established hospitals and the universities, and executed projects of public welfare.
Criticizing Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, he said that PTI had failed to deliver in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa during its five-year tenure. Shehbaz said that Imran did nothing for the province while he (Shehbaz) done a lot in Punjab for the masses’ prosperity. He said that NAB was pressurizing the PML-N candidates when they were busy in their election campaign which was a sheer injustice.
