  1. The PPP has been exceptionally patient with the PML-N. In Punjab, the six provincial ministers who belong to the PPP have complained again and again of how they have been unable to perform because of lack of empowerment or participation in the affairs of the province. Shahbaz Sharif has kept 13 important ministries, including the home ministry, planning and development ministry and information ministry, in his pocket. His policies have failed to deliver and arguably have put the finances of Punjab in dire straits. The province is almost bankrupt; salaries and contractors cannot be paid. The tight budgetary position generally has been made worse in Punjab by populist but ill thought through policies and programmes. In such circumstances the PPP ministers and the party as a whole have been practicing extraordinary restraint and tolerance.
