LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz’s chief Nawaz Sharif on Monday said the government was also engaged in massive corruption in the province of Sindh. Nawaz said if PML-N got another chance to form a government at the centre, it will solve the problems of all provinces.
Addressing PML-N workers from the various districts of Sindh, he said economic conditions in the province were so poor that people could not send their children to schools. “The people of Sindh await a saviour,” Nawaz Sharif said. He further said that the PML-N has no place for the self-serving and the power-hungry. “Musharraf’s cronies and facilitators have driven Pakistan on the brink of disaster,” he said.
