PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif Tues­day hit hard at Peo­ple Party say­ing that rul­ing party com­pleted five years but pushed the coun­try fifty years be­hind.

In a fresh mode along with Lashkari Raisani and other Baloch lead­ers who joined his party, former Prime Min­is­ter said that with pa­thetic al­liance, Peo­ples Party is fi­nally go­ing to com­plete its ten­ure but the out­come of this regime has been proved worst for the coun­try.

Nawaz lashed out at government for re­cent wave of ter­ror­ism in the coun­try and termed it fail­ure of the rulers. “Peo­ple have been dieing in Balochis­tan and Karachi ev­ery­day but the government never both­ers to take steps for pro­tec­tion of in­no­cent peo­ple,” PLM- N pres­i­dent said adding that “ter­ror­ism has been ex­tended from Khy­ber to Karachi and Quetta but al­lied government has no value of hu­man life, they are just cel­e­brat­ing their rule of five years”. He said the job of fed­eral in­te­rior min­is­ter was just to pre­dict ter­ror­ism ac­tiv­i­ties but did noth­ing to pre­vent them.

Nawaz said rul­ing ally par­ties have arm- wings in Karachi and some mem­bers of them have in­volved in 100 mur­der cases. He said the government has failed to pro­vide se­cu­rity to its ci­ti­zens adding that po­lit­i­cal will and vi­brant lead­er­ship was need of hour to re­store peace in the coun­try.

To a query of care-taker setup, Nawaz said that op­po­si­tion leader in Na­tional As­sem­bly Ch. Nisar had con- sulted po­lit­i­cal par­ties in­clud­ing those which were not part of the Par­lia­ment to make con­sen­sus re­gard­ing care- taker government adding that if the government in­tro­duces a bet­ter name then his party would ac­cept it.

To a query on Rehman Ma­lik al­le­ga­tions, Chief Min­is­ter Pun­jab Shah­baz Sharif re­sponded say­ing that it was fed­eral and Sindh government which have is­sued arm li­cences to banned out­fits. CM said the apex court has de­clared Rehman Ma­lik as a liar. Former Peo­ples Party mem­ber in Balochis­tan Lashkari Raisani who quit PPP to join PML-N on the oc­ca­sion said that Peo­ple Party has aban­doned the vi­sion and com­mit­ment of Be­nazir Bhutto there­fore he left the party.
