LAHORE: PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif Tuesday accused PPP rulers of being involved in rampant corruption, price spiral, poverty, unemployment and load shedding in the country in last four years which had made lives of 180 million people miserable.
Addressing May Day meeting here, he said that policies of PPP rulers had brought the country on the brink of destruction. Welcoming the announcement by Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to increase monthly salary of worker to Rs 9,000 from Rs 7,000 in the province, Nawaz Sharif said it should be Rs 20,000 per month.
Those earning Rs 20,000 now every month were unable to live honorable life due to massive price spiral done by PPP rulers, he maintained.
PML-N Chief contended that there was no economic development due to the non availability of gas and electricity. He said during his tenure as Prime Minister, Pakistan was on the road of all-round socio-economic development which was benefitting the poor masses.
"PML-N has always strived for the welfare and betterment of workers and labourers. My father was a worker and did not get any property from the British rulers," he added.
He vowed that the nation will not allow President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani to ridicule the judiciary. "We would not allow them to destroy state institutions and not complying with the verdicts of the Supreme Court. “
"I will salute all those who join in our just struggle for the rule of law and respect for the judiciary. I tolerated the campaign that I and Asif Zardari were together which was not based on facts," Nawaz Sharif stated.
