Nawaz says undeterred by political bluster

BANNU: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday said the government would not be deterred by political blustering and would continue to pursue the agenda of development and prosperity.

“However, if corruption worth a single penny is proved against me, I will not wait for a moment to quit,” the prime minister said in his address to a public gathering here.

Sharif said he enjoyed the public mandate and would not leave on the wishes of a few people.

He said those who claimed of making a “new Khyber Pukhtunkhwa” should see the unimproved condition of the province.

“They lured the people of KPK to get votes, but did not bring development in three years of their tenure,” he said, referring to the leadership of ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf in the province.

Instead, Sharif said, his government had ushered in a new era of development with launch of network of new motorways and roads across the country.

He said the public should realize the difference between the leaders involved in negative politics and those believing in the positive politics of development.-APP
