The Pakistan Muslim League, headed by former Prime Minister Mian Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, (PML-N) has decided not to enter into an alliance with PPP and PML-Q, nor will it make any seat adjustment with these two parties in the coming elections.
This was stated by the PML-N chief, Nawaz Sharif, in a recent interview in Lahore with Zahid Hameedi of MHz TV Network US. He, however, clarified that his party will consider seat adjustment with JUI-F and Jamaat-i-Islami in Khyber Pakhtoonkhwa.
Answering a question Nawaz Sharif said that the PPP government has not taken any step to solve the problem of the common man. Instead, it has indulged in large scale corruption and destroyed the national economy.
He said that after coming to power the PML-N government will give special attention to solve the energy crisis which has brought life to a stand still in the country.
For this purpose PML-N government will build small dams and set up gas fired power plants to provide electricity at reasonable rates to the people, Nawaz Sharif added.
He said that the PML-N has formulated plans to promote Information Technology and Technical and Vocational education at all levels which will help fight unemployment in the country.
“By promoting education we will be able to export trained manpower to the Middle East and other countries,” he said.
To another question the PML-N chief said that his party will also introduce reforms in the transport sector like mass transit system in order to provide cheap transportation to the public.
He said that the PPP government is openly defying the Supreme Court orders which show how serious it is about establishing the rule of law and constitution and democratic norms in the country.
“People are hankering for change and Inshallah the PML-N government will strive sincerely to improve the lot of the common people as in the past,” the former Prime Minister concluded.
