Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said he was glad that Pakistan People’s Party Co-Chairman and former President Asif Ali Zardari was returning to the country.
He was speaking to journalists on Thursday during his visit to Bosnia.
“I am actually very happy that Zardari is returning to Pakistan,” he said, adding the former president will keep “his party’s” control in his hands.
Zardari will land in Karachi on December 23 (today) via a special flight, PPP said. When a journalist asked the prime minster how the year 2016 went for him, he said, “Alhamdulillah (Thank God) it went well, it could have gone better.” “If everybody performs his duties then Pakistan will perform better,” he said.
Prime Minister Sharif said that his government will complete its tenure in another one and a half years. “Our government worked.
What did the people who had a seven-point agenda do? In their tenure the country was marred by load-shedding and terrorism.”
The prime minister added that due to protests nine-months of the country were wasted. “Despite protests we will solve the problem of loadshedding by 2018.”
