Nawaz welcomes MQM decision to join opposition
LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Saturday welcomed the Muttahida Qaumi Movement’s decision to join the opposition and said the formation of a grand opposition alliance was necessary to “rid the country of the current government”.
Speaking to media representatives in Lahore, Nawaz said unprincipled politics had led Pakistan into troubled waters, which was why it was important to rid the country of the present government.
Responding to a question on Balochistan, Nawaz said the issues the province faced were extraordinary. He said the Baloch people could only be pacified “if action is taken against those responsible for their plight”.
On another question regarding gas and power outages, Nawaz said the situation was resulting in huge losses to the country’s economy. — DawnNews
