On the eve of Youm-e-Takbeer, Punjab chief minister-designate Shahbaz Sharif said Monday that May 28 is a historic day for the Pakistani nation as defence of the country was made invincible. “The Pakistani nation, under its prime minister Nawaz Sharif, defied international pressure and made a crucial decision on May 28, 1998, that made the country’s defence impregnable,” Shahbaz said. He said that the nation was lucky to have Nawaz Sharif as its leader once again who always kept the country’s sovereignty supreme. “I am sure the way Nawaz Sharif made the defence of the country stronger by conducting six nuclear tests in response to India’s five, he would successfully steer Pakistan out of economic crisis through his prudent policies.” Earlier, speaking to the media, he said that PML-N’s victory proves that people know the difference between the politics of mere slogans and that of delivery. To a question, he said that government in Balochistan would be installed in consultation with the two allied parties of the PML-N. “Talks are under way with Mehmood Khan Achakzai, Hasil Bizenjo and Dr Abdul Maalik Baloch in this connection,” he added. “We want a government in Balochistan which not only represents all political parties but is also capable of utilising funds in a transparent manner and builds hospitals, colleges, schools and roads in the province.” Separately, speaking to the newly elected MPs, Shahbaz said that during five years of its rule in Punjab, the PML-N government had set precedent of good governance in the province. He said that during his recent visit to Karachi, people from various walks of life met him and thanked Nawaz Sharif for announcing Metro Bus Service in the city.
