ISLAMABAD: Senior vice-president of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has said that government has admitted its failure by removing its entire economic team in eight months, saying that national development has been an half while inflation has been two-fold.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that the team which the government has brought now is facing ambiguity, saying that there is no such big tragedy in the history of the country that today even ask a child he will say that Imran Khan is selected Prime Minister and the incumbent government is selected government.

He said that it is their responsibility to find out the solution of the issue before people came out on roads, saying that one solution is elections. Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was expressing these views in an interview with a private TV channel.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that he wants that Imran Khan should remain in power for five years tenure instead of coming dictatorship, saying that dictatorship is no option for him (Shahid Khaqan Abbasi). He said that he accepts the worst democracy but does not accept dictatorship.

He said that country was destroyed in dictatorship, saying that they cannot afford dictatorship. He said that once there should be transparent and fair elections in the country and the results should be seen and all should be determined that solution of the problems of the country is in it.

He said that he thinks that their (PML-N)’s message and narrative is successful today that PML-N is the only party which can give progress to the country and can resolve problems of the country.

He said that political person takes such risk and the political person which sits in house cannot do politics, saying that Nawaz Sharif already has faced such things and even today he will continue to do so.

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said that Mian Shehbaz Sharif will return, saying that he is leader of the opposition and president of the party as well. He said that there is no difference in the PML-N.

He said that people come in power in some countries for life-time and some people are sacked from power for life-time but both the matters do not run.

After expiry of the bail period, during return of Mian Nawaz Sharif to Kot Lakhpat Jail, a large number of people participated in the rally with the spirit which is not there even in elections, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said.

He said that there was only one message of the people parcipated in the rally that they do not accept the judgments of the courts, saying that people know what the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) is doing today. He said that there is no capability in Imran Khan nor he senses his responsibility, saying that he supported every dictator.
