PML-N nominates Shahbaz Sharif as next PM; and Shahid Khaqan for interim period

All Round View (Islamabad): The Parliamentary Party of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz Saturday nominated Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif as the candidate for the prime ministerial slot after the disqualification of Nawaz Sharif.

During the meeting held at Punjab House here, former Premier Nawaz Sharif put forward the proposal recommending Shahbaz Sharif for the slot of the prime minister and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi as an interim prime minister until Shahbaz Sharif is elected as Member of the National Assembly.

Addressing the Parliamentary Party meeting of the PML-N, he said as Shahbaz Sharif will have to contest the National Assembly election that would take around 50 to 55 days; thus Shahid Khaqan Abbasi would hold the office for transitional period.

The parliamentary party unanimously supported the proposal presented by Nawaz Sharif.

“As I told both the nominees of my decision, they became emotional. However, I am thankful to Shahbaz Sharif and Shahid Khaqan Abbasi for accepting my proposal,” he said addressing the meeting.

Nawaz Sharif also prayed for success of his successors as well as for progress and prosperity of the country. He said he was proud of not being sentenced in corruption case and that there had been no such scar on him during all of the tenures.

“I still do not understand the grounds for my dismissal. I am only content that I was not disqualified on the grounds of alleged corruption,” he said. He said PML-N members should be proud of their leadership as he had matchless character.

On Iqama issue, he said he was just a ceremonial head of his son’s company and never drew any salary. He accepted the post merely to avoid the visa glitches for frequent travel to UK.

“When I never took a salary, what would I declare,” he questioned. He said Sharif family endured accountability during the last three generations, commencing from 1972 even before he joined the politics. He questioned as why Sharif family was singled out to be held accountable.

Regarding the suggestions, that Nawaz Sharif should have resigned earlier, he said he could have done so if he had committed any wrong. Recalling toppling of his government by Pervez Musharraf in 1999, he said, “On one day, I was the prime minister while the very next day, I was declared a hijacker.”

“In the case, I was also awarded sentence of 27 years imprisonment and seven years in the helicopter case,” he added

He said the days of forced exile was a tough time for him and his family. Nawaz Sharif said one day, the people would come to know as why their prime minister was disqualified.

“I am proud that I was not disqualified on charges of corruption, embezzlement of public money or taking kickbacks” he said.

Nawaz Sharif told the meeting that he was a regular tax-payer, giving even more than others.
In an apparent reference to PTI, he said unfortunately Dharna (sit-in)-I, Dharna-II and Islamabad lockdown and Panama Papers had wasted a lot of country’s time.

Former prime minister said he had made the defence country impregnable. However, such an attitude towards a thrice-elected prime minister, was regrettable. “The history will adjudge this that whether it was in Pakistan’s interest or against it,” he remarked. He said he had turned down the offer of $ 5 billion by that time US president for not conducting nuclear tests.

He said the Chinese investment worth $56 billion under China Pakistan Economic Corridor was unprecedented. He told the audience that Chinese President Xi Jinping had addressed him saying : “Mr Prime Minister, this is a gift for you from China.”

He said he wanted to take all political forces onboard for the progress, prosperity and development of the country as one party could not steer the country out of crisis alone. Nawaz Sharif said it was unfortunate that no prime minister in the country had completed the constitutional tenure.

Nawaz Sharif said the countries could not be run in such a way and if it continued for long, it could face some untoward situation. “I am saying this from core of my heart. I am thinking beyond my own interests. I am concerned about Pakistan, not my own”.

Nawaz Sharif said the PML-N rendered great sacrifices for the cause of democracy and would continue the spirit. “The country can only progress with rule of law. I am standing steadfast with my people and will defend the country’s law and constitution at every cost. We will move forward hand in hand,” he

He said he had desired to put the country on right track and vowed to continue the struggle without letting it go waste. Nawaz Sharif said he had no lust for power but agreed to become Prime Minister after 2013 election on friends insistence.

Commenting on achievements of his tenure as the PM, he said load-shedding had been overcome to maximum extent, fought effectively against terrorism, restored peace in Karachi and brought Balochistan in the national mainstream.

The PML-N government improved state of hospitals, issued health cards for needy, established colleges and universities, completed the Lowari Tunnel which was pending since 1974.

Besides, it provided billions of rupees for developing road infrastructure across the country and increased Gilgit-Baltistan development budget from Rs 8 billion to Rs 20 billion, in addition to ongoing development projects worth Rs 102 billion, increased Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) development budget from Rs 11 billion to 22 billion, constructing Hazara Motorway, made Mirpur-Muzaffarabad part
of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).

“Development is our mission. We wanted to move forward in line with the vision of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Allama Muhammad Iqbal,” he said.

“The PML-N respected mandate of political parties in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Sindh. And everyone is witnessed to the so-called Naya Pakistan created by PTI,” he said. Nawaz Sharif said contrary to previous trends, he bade farewell to President Asif Ali Zardari on completion of his term. He said the PML-N wanted to move forward the country’s affairs with national reconciliation as it always exhibited greater patience, but “Instead of getting acknowledgment of our national services, we meted out the behaviour we do not deserve. The attitude kept towards us is an insult to 200 million people, which we never expected.”
