Ahsan Iqbal has said that PML-N played important role in development of this country has been expelled while the next target of the PTI government is to send its President behind the bars.
LAHORE: (UrduPoint/Pakistan Point News-Sept 26th, 2020) Nawaz Sharif’s address to All Parties Conference (APC) was reflection of the sentiments of party workers, said PML-N senior leader and former Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal.
He expressed these views while addressing a press conference in Lahore on Saturday.
The PML-N leader said the PML-N government set a world record by generating 11,000 MW of electricity in a year. His government created history by initiating China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) projects, he said, adding that the economic growth which turned now negative now had reached 6% during PML-N’s tenure.
“The World Bank was saying that Pakistan would grow by 6% in the next two years. Even if the government of an economically weaker African country had done the same, they would have won by a two-third majority,” he said.
“Now the government wants to arrest PML-N President Shahbaz Sharif in order to rig Gilgit-Baltistan elections and for that they are using National Accountability Bureau (NAB) that is targeting PML-N only,” said Ahsan Iqbal.
He went on to say that the judiciary had made it quite clear that pre-trial arrests violate fundamental rights. Imran Niazi would not be allowed to repeat what happened in 2018,”he added.
