HAFIZABAD - PML-N Information Secretary Ahsan Iqbal has declared that his party has its roots deep among the masses and it will give a crushing defeat to the PPP in the next general election as. The ruling elite, headed by President Asif Zardari, has utterly failed to provide any relief to the public during the past four years. The PML-N stalwart also predicted that boat of allied parties will capsize along with the boat of Zardari.

While talking to the newsmen at the wedding ceremony of sister of PML-N leader Najeebullah on here Saturday, Ahsan Iqbal said that the PPP had deviated from its rosy slogan ‘Roti, Kapra and Makan’ and due to its bad governance and anti-people policies people were forced to starvation and were committing suicides owing to ever-increasing prices of all essential commodities like POL, sui gas and electricity. The loadshedding has crippled the economy and millions of workers of industries are being facing starvation, he added. Replying to a question, he said that the PML-N would make seat adjustments with like-minded parties and would refrain from making any alliance with any party keeping in view its past experience.

To a question, he said that people of Sindh were wide awake now and they were fed up with the bad governance and looting of the incumbent rulers who had ruined all the institutions and made the lives of people absolutely miserable. He hoped that the PPP would not be able to further hoodwink the people by its hollow slogans. He said that due to good governance of the Punjab government headed by Shahbaz Sharif, the governments of other provinces were following his role model.

He hoped that the PML-N would return to power with the support of people as they had realised that during the days of PML-N rule in the past the country was on road to progress and all commodities were within the reach of the common man.

He lashed out at President Zardari for his recent remarks against the PML-N leadership and termed it his moral barrenness and quite irrelevant. He deplored the confrontational policy of the rulers with the apex court.
