FAISALABAD: The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) will make a clean sweep in the next general elections only because of prudent policies of Nawaz Sharif, said Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan.
He was talking to the media before inaugurating a painting exhibition and addressing another function of special children at Faisalabad Arts Council (FAC) on Monday.
PML-N failed in health, education: PTI report
The minister said that people of Pakistan as well as workers and leaders of the party were with Nawaz Sharif as he had the vision of national progress and prosperity. He added that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan and Sheikh Rashid had been dejected due to the popularity of the PML-N among the public, and in sheer dejection, they might carry out a suicide attack on the political system of the country. Therefore, a vigilant eye should be kept on them, he added.
The minister said that the Supreme Court should impose a ban on the entry of Sheikh Rashid in the apex court premises as his remarks were defaming the courts. He said though Nawaz was disqualified in Pakistan, yet his work is appreciated at international level.
Political pundits should avoid spreading rumours regarding visit of Nawaz and Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif to Saudi Arabia as the Sharif brothers paid a visit to create harmony among the Muslim countries.
Responding to a question about the Model Town incident, the minister said that all nominated persons ensured their presence before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT). Out of them, some were exonerated and some were declared guilty, who were now being tried in the court.

The objective behind sit-ins and lockdowns is to destabilise the country politically as well as economically, the minister said, adding that the Pakistan Awami Tehreek should pursue its case in the court and avoid staging sit-ins and lockdowns.
