Talking to newsmen upon reaching London, PM Nawaz Sharif said he has already expressed his thoughts on Panama Papers and that a issue is being created to obstruct development in the country.
“We have been working for the country with complete honesty and for this purpose dealt with every issue patiently,” he said.
“There is one man who is always looking for a chance,” said the prime minister, in a veiled criticism of Imran Khan. “He keeps troubling instead of helping us in development initiatives.”
The same man had staged a prolonged sit-in in Islamabad, but gained nothing from it, he lamented. He (Imran) is isolating himself.
He went on to say that it is not suitable for any politician to play a negative role.
Asked about his possible meeting with Asif Ali Zardari, Nawaz said that he has always had cordial terms with the former president, noting that Zardari sahib – then president – was the first person he paid a call on after swearing in as the prime minister.
We want to further promote these ties, which in return will serve as the basis to strengthen democracy, said the premier.
He also appreciated PPP’s decision to not become part of a proposed sit-in in Raiwind.
