Nawaz calls for unity to address challenges

2 min read

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President and former prime minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif on Saturday underscored the need of national unity in addressing the multifaceted challenges facing Pakistan.

He was talking to Senator Irfan Siddiqui, parliamentary party leader in the Senate.

Nawaz Sharif expressed grave concern over elements working to destabilise the country and tarnish its image.

He argued that these forces have no genuine stake in democracy or the people’s welfare, viewing Pakistan’s struggles as their political gains, says a press release.

It said that reflecting on the country’s past achievements, Nawaz Sharif noted that issues like inflation, load-shedding and terrorism, once successfully tackled, have resurfaced.

He assured the nation that with earnest and diligent leadership, the issues can be overcome.

Sharif recalled that seven years ago Pakistan had successfully controlled inflation, eliminated load-shedding, and bid farewell to IMF bailouts. However, he lamented the significant setbacks since 2018, which have led to severe difficulties across various sectors. These setbacks, he noted, will take considerable time to rectify.

Emphasizing the crucial role of security, Sharif advocated for unwavering support to the armed forces and security agencies in their anti-terrorism endeavors. He highlighted the intrinsic link between law and order, investment, and national prosperity, urging Parliament to play an active role in these efforts.

During the meeting, Senator Irfan Siddiqui presented a comprehensive report on the parliamentary party’s performance in the Senate, reaffirming the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s commitment to addressing the nation’s pressing issues and striving for a stable and prosperous future.
