Sending each other to jail won’t fix economy: Shahid Khaqan Abbasi

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi stated on Sunday that locking people up won’t help the nation’s failing economy.

Putting one another in jail won’t help Pakistan’s economic position, Khaqan asserted at a press conference in Karachi. He advised setting up a commission to determine what factors are contributing to the decline in the economy.

The former prime minister regretted that the political system could not handle the problems facing the nation. Before the PML-N came to office, he claimed, he was unaware of the economic catastrophe that Pakistan was going through.

Because we all belong to various political parties, he continued, “we are all responsible for finding a solution to the problems facing the country.”

According to the former prime minister, “establishment meddling” in politics led to instability in a democracy.

The PML-N leader also reaffirmed that everything was OK between him and the party and that the benefit of the nation was their first concern.

Abbasi claimed that the National Accountability Bureau, the nation’s anti-corruption agency, is the reason why governments fail to last. He inquired as to how many politicians NAB held responsible.

According to Abbasi, “the institutions are not operating within their constitutional bounds.”
