PML-N, PML-LM vow to bring change through vote
24 September, 2012
LAHORE: Leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Likeminded (PML-LM) have vowed to bring change in the country through public power.
Addressing a joint public gathering after inauguration of a hospital in Saddar area on Sunday, leaders of the allied parties said that they believed in change through a democratic process and joined hands to bring a corruption-free government in the country.
PML-N MNA Saad Rafiq said that if the Charter of Democracy had been fully enforced, the country would not have been in deep crises. He said that Asif Zardari took democracy as 'a chess game' and disappointed its admirers.
"The PML-N put its popularity at stake for the sake of democracy and joined hands with the PPP government, but Asif Zardari did not honour his commitments," he said. "Change could not be brought through musical concerts and slogans of enlightened moderation, but through vote," he said, adding that the PML-N and its allies would bring change in the country.
PML-LM MNA Kashmala Tariq said that it was the first joint public gathering of the PML-Likeminded and the PML-N after both parties agreed to make an election alliance. "We are united under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif. We believe that only Nawaz's leadership can bring the country out of crises," she said.
Senator Pervaiz Rasheed lauded Kashmala's efforts in building a hospital for the people of the area. Without naming Imran Khan, he said, "Some people build hospitals with public money and charity, and after that they claim all the credit."
