LAHORE: Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Friday said the people of Pakistan had rejected untimely long and Inqilab marches.
“Disgruntled and power hungry politicians will not succeed in their attempt to sneak into power corridor through the backdoor,” he told various delegations which called on him.
He said the PML-N government was working within the ambit of law and the constitution. Besides, he said, it was responsible for protecting people.
He said few elements with nefarious designs could not be allowed to take people hostage for their lust. He said 180 million people had mandated the PML-N and asking for resignation from an elected prime minister was unconstitutional and an insult to the people’s mandate.
Shahbaz said holding of long march or Inqilab march would leave a negative impact on the ongoing army operation, Zarb-e-Azb, against terrorists. He also said owing to
politics of agitation, the country’s economy was being affected adversely.
The chief minister expressed government’s resolve to lead the country to the road to progress and prosperity under the sagacious leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.
