MUZAFFARABAD: Former Prime Minister and PML (N) Chief Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Wednesday said that he along with the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairperson Benazir Bhutto would pull the country out of crisis. Addressing a public meeting, Nawaz Sharif said that his party and PPP have shunned differences for the sake of genuine democracy in the country. He said that both the parties have join hands for restoration of the constitution and democracy.
In his first visit to the earthquake affected areas of October 8, 2005 since his return to Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif said, “I have not come here for vote but to condole with the people who were affected by the devastating earthquake.” He accused that the government did not take quick action for the rescue operation in the affected areas. A prompt action for the rescue operation could have saved thousands of lives, he said. “If the army could show the efficiency and arresting him in ten minute by storming into the Prime Minister House, then why not it saved thousands of people trapped under the rubbles in Azad Kashmir and NWFP,” he remarked.
He said that PML (N) always considered Kashmir Muslim Conference as a coalition party of PML (N), but it joined hands with dictatorship which is regrettable. He appealed the people of AJK to stand firm against the dictatorship and make efforts for the restoration of democracy in the country.
