PML-N chief says corruption has reached proportions never seen before.

BAGH: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif said on Tuesday that the government and the agencies were responsible for the deteriorating law and order situation in the country.

He made this statement while addressing a public gathering in the Bagh district of Azad Kashmir.

Sharif said that today the country was seeing corruption in every institution in proportions he had never seen before. “We will never allow them to plunder our wealth,” Nawaz said to the people of Azad Kashmir. “This is your trust. It should be spent on you and on your development.”

He said the federal ministers were busy in pleasing the army and that would prove to be an embarrassment for them.

    “People living in glass houses should’nt throw stones.”
    And yet if they don’t, we’ll be stuck in this never ending cycle of corruption. Regardless of his past actions, his statement does not become any less valid though I hope it becomes more than just a statement which politicians are fond of using to garner more votes.Recommend

    There is no disagreement on this issue. But, is he willing to admit his not only his own corruption but incompetence. If he is excluding himself his words does not mean much.Recommend
