Nawaz Sharif called upon opposition parties to support Govt
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Saturday called upon opposition parties to support his government to take Pakistan’s forward instead of staging protests.
“I fail to understand what is the agenda of those holding protests,” Prime Minister Sharif said while inaugurating the first phase of Nandipur Power Project?
“Someone is hatching conspiracies from Canada and meetings are being held in London,” he said, referring to Friday’s meeting between Dr. Tahir ul Qadri and Chaudhry brothers with one-point agenda to oust the government.
“For God sake, let Pakistan move forward,” he made an emphatic appeal. “We should be told what those protests were aimed at?,” he questioned.
The prime minister said that those making a lot of noise were not performing in areas where they got the mandate.
He announced that his government had released Rs55 billion for Karachi-to-Lahore motorway. The projects, which were to complete in 10 years, were being constructed in 10 months, he said.
The federal government is upgrading Pakistan Railway also, he said, adding that a new railway line would be built from Islamabad to Muzaffargarh.
