LAHORE: Nawaz Sharif  Pakistan  cannot progress without “good relations” with its neighbors, according to former prime minister and leader of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), Nawaz Sharif, who returned to Pakistan today (Saturday) after four years of self-imposed exile.

The leader of the PML-N made these statements at a “historic” homecoming rally held at Lahore’s Minar-e-Pakistan. To commemorate their leader’s return, the PML-N has planned a sizable gathering at Minar-e-Pakistan.


Party members have gathered at the location from all over the nation, bringing with them groups of fervent fans from their individual constituencies. Brilliant electric illumination has been installed on the Minar-e-Pakistan grounds.

Nawaz Sharif said, “I am meeting you today after several years, but my relationship of love with you is the same.” He continued, “I am proud of the love I see in your eyes.”

“The impoverished had enough financial resources during my tenure to at least seek healthcare and get himself treated,” he asserted.

Nawaz Sharif highlighted in the meantime that these difficult economic circumstances date back a long way and weren’t brought about by the Shehbaz-led administration.


“Sugar was 50 rupees per kilogram during our tenure; it is now 250,” he stated, adding, “We were preparing to ensure Pakistan’s inclusion in the G20, and Pakistan was on its way to becoming an Asian tiger.”

Nawaz continued, “The US dollar was at Rs104 during my administration, and his government did not allow the local currency to depreciate against the US dollar.”


He cited the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) sit-in that took place during his rule and claimed that in spite of these protests, his office made sure that houses had access to energy. “You are aware of the person who planned the sit-ins,
