MULTAN: Where the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz has gone wrong is that it has shifted its focus from the welfare of the country to accumulating wealth for its leaders, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf President Javaid Hashmi said on Thursday. He said the PML-N leaders were only businessmen looking out for their own welfare. “They lack political acumen,” he said. He said the prime minister’s closest advisers were partially responsible for creating problems for the PML-N. “They answer to powers in the Middle East and have created a rift within the PML-N. I have been told that there are already four groups within the PML-N and a fifth is now being created,” Hashmi told The Express Tribune. If PML-N leaders see themselves as part of Pakistan’s future, they should tender their resignations, he said. “The Azadi March will be the largest demonstration in the history of Pakistan. We will march to challenge the status quo and dynastic politics in Pakistan.”
