SWAT (Muslim Times) – Former Punjab CM and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) president Shehbaz Sharif on Friday said that he was in love with the pakhtoons from the core of his heart.
Addressing a public gathering in Swat on Friday, he said that he is a Pakhtoon first and then a Punjabi, adding that if elected to power, he would transform Khyber Pakhtunkhwa like Punjab and Swat like Lahore.
The PML-N president said that PTI chairman Imran Khan took Rs300 billion loan for the province but ruined the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
“Imran Khan lied about planting 1 billion trees,” said and added the PTI chairman claimed of eradicating corruption but awarded Peshawar Metro Bus project’s contract to a blacklisted company.
Shahbaz further promised that if elected, the PLM-N would provide all resources to Swar, Mingora and Malakand, adding that his party would also build hundreds of new dams to overcome water shortage in the province.
The ex-Punjab CM went on to say that Imran Khan promised to provide electricity to whole country but couldn’t even produce single megawatt of electricity during his tenure, while the PML-N-led government had added 11000megawatt of electricity.
Earlier, talking to media after offering condolences to Bilour family in Peshawar, Shahbaz Sharif said that there was no difference between the caretaker government and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).
Shehbaz unleashed a verbal onslaught against his opponents while calling PTI chairman Imran Khan as ‘Bohtan Khan’.
He said that the PML-N would surely win the forthcoming general elections if held in a free, fair and transparent manner.
‘Nawaz Sharif knew who would be sent to jail as soon as he landed in Pakistan but he returned for the sake of masses leaving his ailing wife behind, Shehbaz said.
He asserted that Nawaz Sharif was being pushed against the wall. ‘NAB’s pressure caused defections of our candidates’, he added.
He reiterated that he believed that the PML-N will form government in provinces and centre if transparent elections were conducted and that Pakistan s progress lay in transparent elections.
Shahbaz berated Imran Khan for not launching any mega project in five years in KPK and “destroying the face of Peshawar”.
