Pakistan’s existing situation at ‘jeopardy’: Nawaz Sharif
LONDON: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif today expressed concerns over Pakistan’s current situation, saying that the country is sailing through difficult phase. Talking to media in London, Nawaz Sharif said that Pakistan was moving smoothly towards development but now, it is becoming instable. He said that the process of China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) has also slowed down due to unrest.
The former PM said that his government has worked hard for the welfare of the people during the last four years in order to improve the country. The stock exchange, which was hovering around 54,000 points, has now dropped to around 37,000 points, he added.
