People will choose between performers and destabilizers: Shehbaz


Lahore, June 24 (TNS): President of PML-N Shehbaz Sharif has said that people will choose between those who performed for Pakistan and those who destabilize the country by politics of dharnas.
Shehbaz expressed these views while meeting a delegation of Lawyers’ Wing of PML-N here on Sunday.
He lauded the role of the lawyers in upholding the rule of law and supremacy of constitution, stating that they were the vanguard in the struggle for independence of judiciary, which forms a glorious chapter in the country’s history.
President PML-N asked the party’s lawyers to form legal aid committees to help the party’s candidates with legal advice as well keep an eye on any attempts to rig the election. He said that the legal committees should spring into action when anyone tries to flout the law or interfere into the electoral process.
Shehbaz Sharif said that provision of level playing fields to all parties is a must so that the people can make informed choices based on their understanding of who served them in office and who led them up the garden path.
He said that the PML-N has prepared a very comprehensive manifesto that contains solutions to the multiple problems facing the country. He said that we have prioritized water crisis, health and education as they are the matter of life and death for the nation.
“If people give us the chance to serve them, we will make sure that the work begins on resolving the water crisis on the same day. We will be expanding our interventions in health and education sector to the whole of Pakistan,” he added.
“Pakistan will suffer an irreparable damage if, God-forbid, July 25 polls are not free, fair and transparent. This will undermine all the progress that has been made in past few years and the real essence of democracy & supremacy of ballot. Preventing rigging & promoting fair free & transparent polls is our goal, and Lawyers Forum will play a key role in this regard”, he added.
