Political decisions should not be made in courts: Shahid Khaqan
28 December, 2017
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Wednesday said political decisions should not be made in courts. Addressing the inauguration ceremony of Burhan-Shah Maqsood section of the Hazara Motorway, the prime minister said that the PML-N only believes in the verdict that comes from polling booths. He reiterated that the government will complete its tenure. “Government will complete its constitutional tenure and PML-N will return to power after July 15 elections,” he said, while asking the audience whether they want leaders who deliver on their promises or those who just talk.
“These are the projects which require vision and hard-work and Nawaz Sharif has delivered on his promises,” he said, while referring to Burhan-Shah Maqsood section of the motorway.
The prime minister claimed that the number of roads built during last four years of the PML-N’s government was more than those built in last 60 years of country’s history. “In all the years that Musharraf ruled, there was not a single project of this size built in the country,” he claimed.
The prime minister said a country can only progress when there was political stability and reiterated that the PML-N government, despite numerous challenges, would complete its constitutional term and foil attempts of those who wish to sabotage the democratic process. He said the people of Pakistan know perfectly well who served them sincerely and they would again vote the PML-N to power in the next general election. He said political decisions were not taken through sit-ins and regretted that had there been no instability due to the sit-ins, the government could have done much more for the people.
Abbasi said the PML-N faced grave challenges and boldly confronted terrorism, economic meltdown and dirty politics of sit-ins. He said only political stability and continuity can ensure progress of the country and added that those wishing to topple the government would be sadly disappointed.
The prime minister said he believed in politics of decency and without entering into the politics of verbal abuse and mudslinging, has done practical work to serve the masses. He termed July 28 a difficult day for the government and said the PML-N handled it well and those getting ready their ‘sherwanis’ did not gain anything.
The prime minister said the people of the area can express their gratitude at the time of voting in the general election. He said the PML-N would again form the next government to ensure that the march towards prosperity and progress continues. He said it would have been better if Nawaz Sharif had inaugurated this project, as it was his vision.
