LAHORE: Pak Sarzameen Party head Mustafa Kamal telephoned PML-N president Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday and talked about the government’s plan to hold next elections on Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs).

According to the PML-N, both leaders stressed that democratic forces should gather on one platform for the sake of the people of the country. They also expressed serious concern over unbridled inflation and the worst economic condition in the country.

Shehbaz Sharif said the Imran Khan government had failed to deliver as it had brought the country to the brink of economic disaster. The country’s economic reins had been given to the IMF.

The opposition leader in the National Assembly further said the PTI government was responsible for the ‘crash’ of the Pakistan Stock Exchange (PSX). He said this showed where the country was heading economically. The PSX witnessed a massive selling pressure on Thursday as the benchmark KSE-100 index shed more than 2,000 points.

Mustafa Kamal said the people of the country wanted to get rid of this government at the earliest as it had made the lives of the masses miserable through its poor governance.

Meanwhile, PML-N vice president Maryam Nawaz has suspended political activities for two weeks because of her engagements in her son’s (Junaid) walima festivities at Jati Umra.
