LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz President Shehbaz Sharif remarked on Sunday that Pakistan would suffer irreparable damage if the upcoming general election is not transparent.
Former Punjab chief minister made these remarks during a meeting with PML-N’s lawyer’s forum in Lahore. The meeting was also attended by Naseer Bhatta and Syed Mushahid Hussain.
“The nation will reject the politics of chaos against performance,” he remarked adding “there is our performance on one hand and on the other, there is nothing but false promises.”
