Sharif not eyeing PM’s postMay 30th, 2009 - 3:35 pm ICT by ANI
Karachi, May 30 (ANI): Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) senior Vice President Makhdoom Javed Hashmi has said that party Chief Nawaz Sharif is not eyeing a return to the Prime Minister’s office.
Talking to media persons at the Jinnah International Airport here, Hashmi said his party does not want to destabilize the present government.
Hashmi, however, blamed the PPP led government of still aping the policies of former President General Pervez Musharraf, and said that if it continues to do so, then it would become difficult for the PML-N to cooperate with the government.
He said the PML-N wanted the supremacy of law and constitution to be established in the country.
Commenting on the Swat exodus, Hashmi said it was due to the government’s faulty strategies that such a huge number of people have been forced to flee.
“Due to this wrong strategy, more than 2.5 million people of Swat and Malakand are suffering. The government and the Taliban are responsible for the IDPs crisis,” The Daily Times quoted Hashmi, as saying.
“PML-N is against extremists and terrorists and we are supporting the government to eliminate the terrorists from the region,” he added. (ANI)
