LAHORE: Ousted prime minister and PML-N Quaid Nawaz Sharif during a meeting on Sunday constituted a three-member committee consisting of Hamza Shahbaz, Ashfaq Sarwar and Malik Nadeem and entrusted them the task to convince the displeased members of the party.
The meeting took place at the former premier’s Jati Umra residence in Lahore. The top PML-N leadership discussed a wide range of issues including the prevailing political situation in the country, the upcoming general elections, corruption trial, mass-contact campaign and distribution of tickets among the candidates.
According to the details, the meeting was also attended by Senator Pervez Rashid, Railway Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique and Hamza Shahbaz. They exchanged views on the present scenario of the country and party matters.
On this occasion, Nawaz Sharif directed the key leaders of the party to accelerate the public contact campaign and by addressing their reservations bring back the disgruntled leaders again into the fold of the party.
Earlier, Shehbaz Sharif said his party will emerge victorious in the upcoming general elections on the basis of its public service and uplift projects.
In a statement, the PML-N chief said the party has won a place in the hearts of people because of its performance, adding that the masses have become aware of political illusionists.
Slamming the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), which has been in power in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa since 2013, he said the people of the province had been cheated in the name of change.
He said the performance of those whose rallying cry was making a new Pakistan and bringing a change is evident to everyone. He added political opponents created hurdles in the way of development of the country.
The PML-N chief said no project worthy of mention has been launched by the PPP and PTI governments in Sindh and KP provinces, respectively.
