ISLAMABAD: PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif has slammed the government for its performance, saying that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) is bent upon using all tactics to mask its corruption.
Talking to the media in Peshawar, the PML-N chief said people will come out on the roads again "if the government does not mend its ways." He expressed regret regarding Pakistan's upward movement on the list of most corrupt countries released by Transparency International and said that inflation in the country had increased because of the actions of the present government.
Nawaz also asserted that terrorism in Pakistan was a result of one-man rule in Pakistan. He said the country's sovereignty had been challenged during Musharraf's era, adding that loadshedding, the situation in Balochistan and the missing persons problem all were 'gifts' from Musharraf, adding that the former president had embezzled aid received after the 2005 earthquake. He said all these problems had resulted because of Musharraf's "one-man rule".
Sharif also clarified that the PML-N does not feel threatened by meetings between the PPP and the PML-Q.
