LAHORE: Former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) will form the next government and will be undefeated in the next elections.
Addressing a rowdy youth convention, the recently re-elected PML-N president said that he is fighting for the sake of Pakistan, and that the sanctity of their vote will be restored.
“The verdict against me is not the real one, that will be the verdict of the people,” he said referring to recent victory of Ms. Kulsoom Nawaz in the NA-120 by-election.
Nawaz thanked his supporters for their unrelenting support to him and Maryam Nawaz during the by-election campaign adding that constituents of NA-120 have restored his faith in them.
He said that they have reduced load shedding in the country and have worked tirelessly to set up power plants in the country unlike previous government which did not fulfill their promises.
“Power plants which took twenty years were set up in twenty months,” he said claiming that electricity is being provided uninterrupted to the people.
“I promised that I will eliminate load shedding and terrorism from the country,” he said.
Nawaz highlighted his achievement taking credit for CPEC, restoring peace in Karachi, and bringing foreign investments to the country.
“The sword of disqualification constantly hanged over me,” he said adding that he was still not sure why he was ousted from power.
“Why was I ousted, I am still unsure,” he asked adding that he was merely removed for not claiming his salary from his son’s firm.
“The people have still not accepted the verdict to remove me,” he said adding that the determination of the people will change the destiny of Pakistan.
Nawaz Sharif once again criticized the apex court’s verdict through a poetic expression. Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif also addressed the youth convention.
