MARDAN, Jan 1: Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders have said that conspiracies are being hatched against the party to prevent it from coming into power. They have also claimed that the PML-N is the only political party which could steer the country out of the present crises.

The PML-N leaders, including Iqbal Zafar Jhagra, provincial president Pir Sabir Shah, central leader Khawaja Mohammad Khan Hoti, expressed these views at a public meeting at Parano Park area here on Tuesday.

Mr Jhagra said that national institutions and economy were on the verge of collapse due to wrong policies and poor governance system. He alleged that the rulers had preferred their interests to national interests and adopted the policy of collecting money through every possible illegal means. He said that the steps being taken by the judiciary was the only ray of hope for the country.

The party’s provincial president claimed that intelligence agencies had been supporting PTI chief Imran Khan and Tehrik Minhajul Quran chief Tahirul Qadri. He expressed concern over the poor law and order situation in the country and asked the federal and provincial governments to take effective steps against terrorism.

Mr Hoti said that he quit the PTI because he did not like the politics of its chief. He said that the Awami National Party had broken all records of corruption during its present tenure. He said that the so-called champions of Pakhtun’s rights looted them with both hands.

On this occasion, former ANP leader Imran Khan joined the PML-N along with his friends and supporters.
