Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader and former Punjab chief minister Hamza Shehbaz said on Wednesday that general elections should be held on time in order to get rid of an atmosphere of intolerance, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
Speaking to the media in Lahore, Hamza, who is also son of former prime minister Shehbaz Sharif, stressed the need for drawing up a 10-year economic plan so that the country could be pulled out of crisis.
He admitted that inflation had made the lives of ordinary people miserable.
Hitting out at the PTI government, he accused it of destroying the country’s economy. “The party’s government reduced petrol prices in violation of the deal it had struck with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
“However, the coalition government succeeded in putting the economy back on track,” Hamza claimed.
The PML-N leader expressed the hope that a time would come when Pakistan would develop at a brisk pace.
On the other hand, a function was held to celebrate Hamza’s birthday.
Former legislator Rabia Farooqui organized the event.
In the end, Rabia and Khawaja Ahmad Hassaan cut the cake to mark the day.
