PM-elect Shahbaz Sharif promises to resign if any proof found of international conspiracy
Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that an in-camera briefing will be given on the letter-gate scandal in the National Security Committee of the Parliament. If there is ample evidence in this regard that we have been the victim of an international conspiracy or we have been helped by external sources, then in a second I will resign from the post of Prime Minister and go home.
“The people and the members of the house want to know the truth of this letter. We had decided several days ago regarding the no-confidence motion. If it is a lie then it should be made public so that this debate can last forever,” PM-elect said, further adding that, After all, as the elected Prime Minister, I call for a letter to be presented to the National Security Committee of Parliament, which includes the Chiefs of the Armed Forces, including the DG ISI, the Foreign Secretary and the Ambassador. I would say that if there is ample evidence that we have been the victim of an international conspiracy or that we have been helped by some external source, I will resign from the PM’s office in a second and go home. Let me arrange a session and give a briefing on the letter.
PM-elect Shahbaz Sharif said that he had offered the Economic Charter to the previous government. However, Pakistan is going to have the biggest budget deficit this financial year, the current account deficit is also going to be the biggest deficit in history.
He said that 6 million people were unemployed and more than 20 million people were living below the poverty line. Pakistan was an exporter of wheat and sugar and became an importer today but today we are entering a new era of development.
