Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior leader Hanif Abbasi on Saturday fired a fresh salvo at the Pakistan Peoples Party.
Addressing a press conference in Rawalpindi, Mr Abbasi asserted, "PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif will become the country’s premier for the fourth time." He urged the party workers to get ready to welcome Nawaz Sharif to the country.
Mr Abbasi recalled the contributions made during the tenure of Nawaz Sharif. Mr Abbasi said, "During the tenure of Nawaz Sharif, electricity was generated up to 10,000 megawatt (MW)."
He made it clear to ask the PML-N about the performance between 2013 and 2018. "Don’t ask about the performance of the 16 months during the tenure of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM). "
"Nawaz Sharif is returning to change the country’s fate. The PML-N supremo will end the menace of terrorism, and no one from the country will leave unemployed," said Mr Abbasi.
Mr Abbasi took a swipe at the PPP, saying, "We have never said to contest elections together with the PPP. The PPP has nothing to do with the exception of chanting the slogan Bhutto Zinda Hai!"
Speaking about the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Mr Abbasi said, "The CPEC was about to be completed when Nawaz was the country’s premier."
