LAHORE: Chief of his own faction of Pakistan Muslim League, Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday criticized the government for negligence in maintaining peace and to resolve problem of people of Sindh.

Speaking to media persons at his residence in Raiwand followed by meeting with Sindhi nationalist leaders, he said new local-government ordinance imposed in Sindh was aimed to divide the province adding that his party has rejected the ordinance.

Supporting Supreme courts order to recheck electoral lists in Karachi, PML-N president said government should act upon orders of the apex court to conduct free and fair elections.

Former Prime Minster said the parties which were mentioned by the Supreme Court involved in Karachi unrest, enjoying and sharing the rule with this government.

He said as per apex court order, the government did not take any action against the parties which have their arm-wings and involved in chaos in the largest city and financial hub of the country.

"My party and Sindh nationalist parties have same ideology, they are as much Pakistani as we are", Nawaz added.

He emphasized need for the consensus to build Kalabagh Dam adding that without harmony among the four provinces, this project would remain unfruitful.

Nawaz said that people in Karachi seem frightened and worried amidst ongoing unrest in the city.

He expressed grief over the plight of people living in Sindh province.

While criticizing the federal government, Nawaz Sharif said that Asif Zardari, in the very first year of his tenure, had stepped forward to paralyse the Punjab government but every attempt to weaken democracy was foiled.

He added that PML-N is a national party and its presence in all the provinces is a symbol of unity. He said that the PPP and its allies are not sincere in restoring peace in Karachi as the coalition did not make any effort to de-weaponise the city.

End.
