LAHORE: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that he had advised Yousuf Raza Gilani to quit the post of prime minister but he did not agree and now he had to leave the premiership anyway, DawnNews reported.

Speaking to a public gathering in Mingora, Swat, Sharif reiterated that his party would change fate of the masses if they get a chance to rule them again. “We would serve the public well by considering it as reverence,” he added.

Critisising the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) government, the PML-N chief said that the PPP did not get public vote for disobeying supreme judiciary of the country. “Zardari and Gilani have given a gift of 20 hours long electricity loadshedding to the masses,” he added.

Sharif further criticised the PPP-led coalition government by saying that it has looted the wealth of poor masses of the country, adding that ministers of the government have plundered billions through corruption and now courts have forced them to return it back. “This is a government which has even burgled the money of pilgrims,” the PML-N chief added.
