ATTOCK: Reminiscing his tw0 stints in power, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Chief Nawaz Sharif said Pakistan progressed at a very fast rate under his stewardship.
Speaking at a rally in Attock on Wednesday, Nawaz said that if he had remained in power, prosperity would have reached the town he was currently standing in.
Further boasting of the developmental projects undertaken by his governments, the former Prime Minister said that they generated money for development themselves, and had not resorted to “begging.”
Highlighting the deteriorating situation of Pakistan today, Nawaz claimed there was no loadshedding, terrorism, extremism, inflation or unemployment in Pakistan when he ruled.
“Everything was just fine; Pakistan was region’s No1, better than India,” he said, adding that the Pakistani rupee was also stronger than India’s.
Lamenting the growing national debt, Nawaz said that every child born today is born with a debt.
While waving his party’s flag, Nawaz said that if the people of Pakistan support him once again, things will change in Pakistan for the better. “God will change the destiny of the youth; this government is ruining their future,” he added.
“Together, we will build a new Pakistan which will become Asia’s tiger,” he said.
Lashing out at the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Nawaz said that even though he knew the elections were rigged, his party decided to work with the PPP. However, Nawaz said, the PPP had betrayed them.
Regretting his seven years in exile, Nawaz said he could have served Pakistan during those years.
Promising a change for Pakistan, Nawaz asked the people of Attock to support him. “I have come to you for the sake of Pakistan and not for any personal gains,” he said.
“There will come a time when there will be no inflation, no loadshedding and no other problems and that would be PML-N’s time in power,” he said.
