Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif Saturday termed political stability a vital condition for economic prosperity and ridding the people of price hikes.
“For the sake of loyalty to Pakistan, there must be economic stability,” he said. In a press statement shared by PM Office’s media wing, the prime minister said it was someone’s desire to see Pakistan pushed into default, but it would not happen, nor would they let it happen.
“The people who had laid land mines in the economic foundations of the country, are out to do the same in the political foundations of the country,” the prime minister said in a veiled reference to the political opponents of Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf, said. The people who had hurt public confidence were now out to dissolve assemblies, he said.
“Political stability and economic charter can only strengthen Pakistan’s national solidarity,” he opined. The prime minister vowed that they would rid the public of the problems of food inflation and employment just as they delivered “by removing a liar and a corrupt government” with the power of the constitution.
By spreading anarchy, he said, the political miscreants wanted to force the world not to invest in Pakistan, besides hampering the efforts for rehabilitation of the flood-affected people. He said these political mischief makers were not concerned about the plight of the flood-affected population, as they were only self-centric and interested in their political interests.
The prime minister said it was necessary to get rid of ‘the politically unemployed’ in order to start providing employment to the youth.
He called upon the nation to ponder as to whenever the country was on the path of economic prosperity, the wrongdoing junta suddenly swung into action.
“There is no doubt that economic havoc was part of an agenda, and the political instability is a continuity of that action,” he opined.
The prime minister advised the political opponents to have mercy on the condition of the people of Pakistan.
