ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif, during an address in Islamabad, said that Pakistan would have prospered if his party had been given more time.
Speaking at a laptop distribution ceremony in Islamabad on Friday, Sharif said that, “If they had let us construct, if we hadn’t been thrown out, if we hadn’t been sent to jail, if we hadn’t been banished, today Pakistan would have been a country where degree holders got jobs as soon as they graduated. That is the Pakistan we were trying create.”
The PML-N leader accused the current government of non-cooperation, stating that had they cooperated with the Punjab government, Pakistan would have had a different face today.
He said that with the work being done by the current regime, it was hard for him to imagine a prospering Pakistan.
Sharif called on the people to “recognise those people who had devoted themselves to serve the country”.
He said that education is flourishing in Punjab and their work was standing out. Sharif said his party had taken up the role to make a “progressive” Pakistan by making sure that the youth could hold their heads up high.
