New political contract, fair elections required to solve national issues: Shahid Khaqan
New political contract, fair elections required to solve national issues: Shahid Khaqan Abbasi.
KARACHI (Dunya News) – Former prime minister and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Friday said a new political contract should be done followed by free and fair elections to solve the national issues.
The erstwhile premier held a press conference along with PML-N delegation after meeting Farooq Sattar in Karachi and maintained that dialogues are not being held among political parties for the first time and the incumbent government is responsible for that.
He said, “Pakistan will not make progress without Karachi which is its heart. PML-N started development projects in the metropolis during its tenure. We do not crave power; we only highlight issues of common people.”
Talking on the occasion, Farooq Sattar said PML-N’s previous tenure was better than the current term of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) if comparison is drawn between both.
He said, “The incumbent government has badly failed in resolving people’s issues. We do not want package and donation for Karachi. The importance of this city cannot be neglected and it should be given at least Rs 300 billion annually.”
