I Didn’t become PM Through Backdoor: PM Shahbaz

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the worst rigging was happened in 2018 elections adding that when we assumed the power, the economic conditions were worst and the country was nearing to state of default but the PDM decided to save the state instead of politics.

The prime minister, in his address at the National Assembly, said that, Imran Khan, apple of the eyes, was drunk milk for last 15 years.

Shahbaz Sharif said the united opposition had accepted the challenge of assuming the government just to save the state as the country was on verge of the default with record inflation and unemployment.

The PM said despite prevailing mammoth economic challenges, the government would make Pakistan emerge a great country, without bowing before fascism and propaganda by the leadership of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.

Rubbishing the propaganda of “imported government” the prime minister said he did not become the prime minister through the backdoor rather for the first time, the parliament changed the government through a constitutional process.

He also questioned whether the court summoned the NA deputy speaker like they did to the Punjab Assembly deputy speaker, who had decided against counting 10 votes by the PML-Q lawmakers in the chief minister’s election citing a letter from Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain advising the members to vote Hamza Shehbaz.

The prime minister said if the system continued without reformation, ensurign the sanctity of law and constitution, “we will be nowhere in history.”
