    As the space was getting tighter in Punjab, it was expected that he will move into sindh and will try to attract sindhi voters by recalling bhutto’s name and visiting their grave. The same bhuttos, he was once used to call “drunkards”. Shame!!… Nawaz sharif is so desperate to become the prime minister for the 3rd time, but i am not sure that whether he wants to be PM for the country or for himself, because if he wanted to do something for the country, then he should have done it in his last two tenure and should not have given Pakistan’s economic freedom to IMF!!!!!!!!…Recommend

    Political families are trying to grab Pakistan in order to snatch money from Pakistanis..PTI says, all are welcome in PTI, however, tickets will be given to those who fulfill PTI’s requirements..People of Pakistan will reject in next election those who are corrupt..
