SARGODHA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Chief Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the current government did not just waste 10 years of his life, but also wasted 10 years of Pakistan’s progress.

Speaking to a congregation in Sargodha, Sharif said that he had wanted to make Pakistan the “Asian tiger” during his tenure.

Addressing the people, Sharif asked them to not lose hope as his ambition to change the destiny of the country is still young and his party will do everything to save the country.

He added that his party brought Pakistan on the path on success during its tenure, “like no one else has ever done”.

“We consider politics a religion,” he further added.

The PML-N chief also said that his government had struggled to flourish Pakistan in every field.

    The era that you enjoyed was much batter than this current era, if you didnt do much in that time how can you do it now. Adhoc and repulsive politics is what you can do.

    That’s what you have been telling us from past many decades despite having two tenures earlier in center and many in on provincial level … After getting a 2/3rd majority what did you do for Pakistan apart from making a road? We sure didn’t elect you only for that?.

    Spare us please and take rest now … You guys have been in governments on different levels for five times … still ruling Punjab from past 4 years .. Forget about this Tigers and Leopards blah blah We don’t live in Jungles.
    To PMLN sympathizer What has this man done in Punjab in last 4 years for solving the load shedding problem?
    I hope voters are mature enough to try new people as Zardari & NS have only filled their pockets and have reached to 2nd and 4th position respectively on Most Richest Pakistanis list.Recommend

    How does he plan to stand up for this country when a majority of his wealth is lying abroad. Its common sense guys, how can he say anything against the United States or the UK. They’ll just freeze all of his assets. We need an independent leader, one who puts the people before his own benefits.

    He got the chance to do it 2 times and even more chances to make Punjab the ‘Pakistani Tiger’. Instead, his assets increased by 4000 times when he came to power and he became the 4h richest Pakistani with total assets of $1.4 billion. Recommend
