LONDON: Prime Minister, Nawaz Sharif Wednesday said the government tolerated with fortitude the sin-in of 2014 and still continues to do so but warned against taking undue advantage of the government’s tolerance.
Talking to mediamen here, the Premier said the time has proved that the Islamabad’s protest sit-in did not benefit anyone; not even the man who spearheaded it.
To a question about his health condition, Nawaz Sharif said he is here for getting a medical checkup.
When asked about how he plans to tackle the issue of Panama leaks, he said he had expressed his views on the subject in detail during his televised addressed to the nation. “I don’t even know what charge I am facing or what wrongdoing I have committed,” he added.
He said the incumbent government is serving the country with the best of its capabilities and intentions and making all out efforts for its progress and development.
PM Sharif said Pakistan is craving development and this person (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan) should not try to obstruct the country’s march towards progress. “This person never misses the opportunity to create problems for the government but he will not succeed in his designs,” he added.
Responding to a question about the possibility of a meeting between him and Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari, he dispelled the impression that the government is in a spot where it finds itself in need to make such contacts.
However, he said that, he is supportive of such an interaction with Asif Zardari, adding he had enjoyed good relations with the PPP Co-chairman in the past.
Nawaz Sharif lauded PPP’s decision not to be part of PTI’s proposed sit-in in Raiwind.
