London: In a highly anticipated announcement, Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif revealed today that former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is ready to make his triumphant return to Pakistan. Addressing the media during a press conference held in Lahore, Shehbaz Sharif confirmed that legal experts have cleared the path for Nawaz Sharif’s return to the country, paving the way for his arrival on October 21, 2023.
During the press conference, Shehbaz Sharif emphasized that Nawaz Sharif’s return should no longer be a subject of speculation or doubt. He assured the public that Nawaz Sharif will not only return to Pakistan but will also unveil an ambitious economic plan on the very day of his homecoming, October 21.
Shehbaz Sharif used the occasion to reflect on the challenges faced during his party’s 16-month tenure. He specifically mentioned overcoming obstacles such as floods and sit-ins, which he characterized as a “revolt against Pakistan and its armed forces” that occurred on May 9.
Addressing the contentious issue of negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Shehbaz Sharif stated that although there was resistance, his party prioritized the welfare of the state over their political careers. He noted that the IMF agreement had resulted in significant improvements in the production sector, preventing potential unemployment and unrest.
Turning his attention to the Panama case, Shehbaz Sharif claimed that Nawaz Sharif was unfairly targeted, despite over 400 Pakistanis, including politicians, being named in the Panama list. He asserted that the former Prime Minister’s removal from power had negative consequences for Pakistan’s foreign policy, halting progress and economic growth.
Shehbaz Sharif concluded by highlighting the importance of Nawaz Sharif’s role in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and his sacrifices for the nation. He stated that Pakistan had suffered due to the removal of Nawaz Sharif from power and urged the nation to break free from a cycle of stagnation and look towards a brighter future.
As the countdown to Nawaz Sharif’s return continues, the nation awaits the unveiling of his economic plan and the potential impact it may have on Pakistan’s political landscape and economic outlook.
