On the 83rd Pakistan Day, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif had stated that ‘political chaos’ was the main reason for the country's economic instability. In his message, PM Shehbaz Sharif urged the nation to pay tributes to the sacrifices of the country’s founding fathers but not lose sight of the challenges faced by the country.
“The challenges are topped by a combination of economic instability and the inability to settle the rules of the game. An environment of political chaos explains why we have failed to develop our economy on a sustainable basis,” said the PM.
