LAHORE – The time has come that all the political forces, social and economic experts and intellectuals should evolve a comprehensive strategy to convert the country into an invincible force.
These views were expressed by PML-N Chief Nawaz Sharif on Thursday in his special message on May 28 (Yaum-i-Takbeer). He said, “To pull the country out of the prevailing crises, we will have to relive the passion of May 28 in the economic, social and educational fields by adopting comprehensive strategy coupled with undeterred revolutionary steps and decisions at national level”.
He said that democratic government of the country made the defence of the country invincible on May 28, 1998 by testing its nuclear capabilities and established Pakistan as the first nuclear power in the Muslim World.
Nawaz Sharif said that the event of May 28 had established the fact that people of Pakistan were courageous and strong-willed and no power could obstruct them when they decide to take any measure for the interest of the country.
“It is need of the hour to focus our energies to convert the country into a real welfare state and to achieve the goal of economic self-reliance in order to lower the country’s dependency on foreign aid. The fields of economy and education should be given special importance besides other fields to convert the country into greater welfare state. Nawaz Sharif said that Pakistan could not be put on the road to progress for the last 63 years due to adventurism of the dictators and political instability. He said that it was great tragedy that people of this country could not be provided with basic facilities of power and water for the last 63 years. PML-N chief said, “We could not find a proper infrastructure according to the needs of the
country, while the power crisis has become more serious than the previous years.
Education system is depleting, while the other sectors are also facing the same position”.
“We should strengthen the institutions instead of personalities and give priority to national interests over the personal interests”, he added.
