LAHORE: Former prime minister and PML-N leader Nawaz Sharif has claimed that Pakistan would have been one of the Asian Tigers, had his government not been toppled by General Pervez Musharaf.
“My government was busy in building an infrastructure and roads and other important mega projects with the help of good governance,” he said, adding that the motorway was laid, yellow cabs scheme started to overcome unemployment and coastal highway was under-construction.
In an interview with a US television MHz Networks at his Raiwind residence, he said his government had been working through different channels to establish good relations with India but, Musharraf destroyed all his efforts by triggering the Kargil conflict. APP
