LAHORE: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Saturday said despite all out efforts by the opponents the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML N) government always remained successful because of its development agenda.
“The political opponents are making criticism just for the sake of power. We are clean and clear and are struggling for aneffective accountability even more than the opponents”, he said in a meeting with journalists.
“We have already requested the Supreme Court for across the board accountability. The apex court can widen or amend the scope of the Terms of the Reference (ToRs) of the (proposed) accountability commission,” he said.
He said the opposition should not make unnecessary criticism. The prime minister said no corruption scandal had ever been proved during none of his governments.
The prime minister said besides national development Pakistan was also forging good ties at regional and international levels and all important states including China and the United States were desirous to extend cooperation on development projects.
He said during the year 2015 investment had been made to add around 12 000 megawatts of electricity to the national grid while the accumulative addition during last two decades remained at 10 000 MWs.
The prime minister said the government had saved Rs 112 billion of the public money from three power projects and was striving to bring an end to loadshedding by January 2018.
