LAHORE

PML-N Pres­i­dent Mian Nawaz Sharif on Mon­day said that the present eco­nomic con­di­tions of Pak­istan are a con­se­quence of for­mer Prime Min­is­ter Zul­fiqar Ali Bhutto’s na­tion­al­i­sa­tion poli­cies. Nawaz said that were it not for these poli­cies, Pak­istan would have been a highly pros­per­ous coun­try to­day.

The PML-N chief was speak­ing at an event held at the Na­tional Hockey Sta­dium in Lahore to mark the Pun­jab gov­ern­ment’s in­tern­ship pro­gramme and lap­top dis­tri­bu­tion scheme for the youth.

While speak­ing at the event, he said that if noth­ing was done to save the coun­try from its present crises, then their fu­ture gen­er­a­tions would never for­give them. Nawaz Sharif also warned the students about el­e­ments who were “out to mis­in­form” the youth and ad­vised them not to be mis­guided and de­ceived by any­one.

He added that the same el­e­ments had at­tempted to hin­der the lap­top dis­tri­bu­tion scheme but had been un­suc­cess­ful in do­ing so, adding that more lap­tops had been dis­trib­uted than be­fore. He fur­ther said that the cur­rent gov­ern­ment had brought about the prob­lems of load­shed­ding, un­em­ploy­ment, ter­ror­ism and many other sim­i­lar prob­lems upon the Pak­istani pub­lic. He said that ev­ery­one should unite in im­prov­ing the coun­try’s con­di­tions. Dur­ing the event, tal­ented chil­dren were awarded with the Guard of Hon­our.
