LAHORE: Former interior minister and Secretary General of Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) Ahsan Iqbal Chaudhry says Pakistan is stumbling on economic front and fresh elections are only possible solution to steer country out of crisis.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore, he said Pakistan was progressing during the rule of previous government with new motorways and power plant being built in the country. He said incumbent government did not put a single brick and has eaten the whole loans, adding that investors are running from the country.

The lawmaker said Pakistan’s economy has been crashed on 2.4 % growth rate. He said Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif can sacrifice to promote his stance of ‘give sanctity to vote.’

Ahsan Iqbal said any leader other than Nawaz would have become traitor of the system if faced such situation. He said revenge is being taken in the name of accountability.

He warned that national economy is on the verge of collapse and national security is in danger. He said we must face hurdles like a rock, adding that I believe the hard times would end soon.

He said those entering government through conspiracies have been unveiled as an inexperience person cannot fly plane.

He said that one million people have become jobless in one year of PTI’s government, adding that the current government while creating 8.9 percent budget deficit in one year has created threats for the economic sovereignty and national security of the country.

Ahsan Iqbal said that the current government has taken Rs 10 thousand billion loans in one year, adding that PML-N government had taken Rs 10 thousand billion loan in five years. He said that today Pakistan is facing severe economic crisis, adding that the economy of the country is moving towards bankruptcy.

Ahsan Iqbal said that the history and time will prove truthfulness of Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and PML-N, adding that justice will be done with Nawaz Sharif. He said that after the Arshaf Malik video case not only whole Pakistan but the whole world knows about the reality of case against Nawaz Sharif, adding that Nawaz Sharif has been punished on the basis of falsehood. Ahsan Iqbal said that he has full belief in judiciary and judicial system of the country.
