Lahore: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that if the people of Pakistan expressed their confidence in the leadership of PML-N during the forthcoming general elections, we would purge the national politics from rubbish and waste, after coming into power. The Peoples Party and its allied political parties are completely submerged in corruption. He said national politics has been muddied by Ali Baba Forty Thieves, while he is prepared to take contract to cleanse the dirt in national politics. He said we have to make Pakistan into a country of Quaid-e-Azam and Allama Iqbal, and, if people gave their mandate, rubbish of corruption would be cleaned from the country. He said Inshahallh, the people would express their full confidence in PML-N, under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif in next generation elections. He said former Army Chief General (Retd.) Aslam Baig has clearly said that Nawaz Sharif was not given any money. He said what could be greater certificate than a clear statement of a former Army Chief, while the affidavit of a former ISI Chief, who broke his oath, has no importance.
