Sindh card no longer usable: Nawaz
17 May, 2012
SHIKARPUR: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Muhammad Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said the Sindh card could no longer be used as it had "run out of credit".
Speaking to reporters in Shikarpur, the PML-N chief blamed the country's rulers of being disconnected from the people and oblivious to their problems. He said it was time the government paid attention to the masses' issues and served the people. Sharif said people were fed up with government's corruption and mismanagement.
He said Sindh card had been emptied by those who were filling their pockets with poor people's money and they would now go home as people would not support them, adding that no card would be needed if people were served selflessly.
The PML-N president said his party would serve the people of Pakistan. He said whoever gave good advice to the rulers, they turned against him instead of correcting themselves. Sharif said the PML-N was sincere in going along with the rulers for the service of the country, but the rulers were not sicnere.
He said the PML-N believed in service of people and was ready to cooperate with those who felt the pain of the poor masses. There could be difference of ideology, but everyone wanted to see Pakistan progressing, he added. Speaking about Kalabagh dam, he said if Sindh had reservations over the dam, the project should not be taken up.
Replying to questions, the former prime minister alleged that Interior Minister Rehman Malik's past was replete with graft cases, adding that Malik was a convict. "Who is he to accuse others? He is not an angel," he said.
