PML-N chief says real issue is bringing back ‘plundered money’ from Swiss banks.

A day after Yousaf Raza Gilani was disqualified in a contempt case, opposition Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N)’s chief hit out at the Pakistan Peoples Party, and said “they reaped what they sowed by clashing with the judiciary.”

“Gilani had to go home in shame,” Nawaz Sharif said while addressing a rally in Swat.

“We were with the judiciary in the past, and firmly stand with it today, but disqualification of the prime minister will not solve the real issue, which is to bring back the plundered money from Swiss banks,” Nawaz said.

The PML-N chief criticised the PPP government, and said the party and its coalition partners have left Pakistan bankrupt.

“Today, Pakistan is standing alone in the international community due to wrong policies of the present government. PPP plundered public wealth and transferred it to Swiss banks. We will bring public money back to the country,” he said.

Nawaz asked the people not to support “the most corrupt government which clashes with the judiciary.”

He said his party will change the fate of the Swat valley, and bring about revolutionary change in the development sector of Swat. Nawaz also hit out at rival Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan.

Leaders who say they will change the current situation in just 90 days are liars, Nawaz said, adding that people who make such claims have no experience in politics nor any expertise.

“PML-N will change things here and serve the people as it has done in the past,” he said, adding that the Punjab government is constructing a kidney hospital in Swat at a cost of Rs760 million.

PML-N leader Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan also criticised Imran, without taking his name.

“Those who talk about tsunami all the time are not aware of real politics,” he said, adding “During my tenure, Pakistan was progressing at a rate faster than any other country in the region.”

The problem with you Nawaz Shariff and with Nisar is a very typical case. You corrupt politicians have spoken the lie of your sincerity and progress for so long you have actually started believing your own lies. And to prove your point you tend to point out the few things you achieved that any party in power should have been able to do to begin with. The only thing you are given credit for is not succumbing to international pressures to destroy our nukes. There really is nothing else you did. You didn’t improve the railways, the load shedding or anything in your time either. Pakistan is beyond Punjab and your party has outlived its value. It is only there to usurp NA seats and perform walk outs and just about nothing else of significance. Please keep your democracy. In truth you are the people who are wasting the countries time. Both PML-N and PPP, Let the people who are “actually” sincere take over.
