GUJRANWALA: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif said on Saturday that the parliament has lost its supremacy, while poverty and unemployment have made life miserable for the masses, DawnNews reported.

While addressing a rally organised by the party, Sharif said PML-N will not let the government increase electricity and gas tariffs, as is widely expected.

Sharif vowed to bring revolution in the country for betterment of people by changing the system of governance in transparent manner.

“There is darkness in homes, industries and business houses across the country due to acute shortage of electricity and gas. We would not allow increase in power and gas tariff,” said the party chief.

He claimed that the problems being faced by the country would have been solved if his party was in power.

“Pakistan is an independent nation and it will never become a beggar and the government responsible for bringing Pakistan to the brink will not be accepted,” he said.

Lamenting the culture of corruption, Sharif said that corruption was at its peak in the country.

The former prime minister said that the agenda for change was ready and that his rally will become a sign of change for the country.

The rally was also addressed by top PML-N leaders including Ch. Nisar Ali Khan and Ahsan Iqbal.
