PM blames PTI over ‘hurdling development work’
LAYYAH: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday lashed out at opponents collectively and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf specially and called them enemies of Pakistan, ARY News reported.
“Enemies of Pakistan do not want development projects, implementation of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) project, construction of roads, construction of motorway, health cards for poor, the prosperity among people and employment,” he said while addressing a public gathering in Layyah.
He said it had been four years, since the opponents were holding sit-in protests and wasting precious time of the nation.
“Have they ever said a useful thing? Their agenda is sabotage, their agenda is lying and blaming only. The opponents daily use foul language. I don’t understand how they do it,” he said.
Nawaz questioned from the opponents that where was their ‘Naya Pakistan’. “Can those who are orchestrating blame-games be your leaders?”
He also mocked at the PTI over low turnout in their rallies and boasted that the Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N)’s rally could accommodate ten rallies of PTI.
“Such an enormous rally can accommodate ten rallies of those who recently held a rally in Islamabad. When I saw the Islamabad rally by zooming in, I realized that all the seats under high-voltage bulbs were empty,” he said.
