He said Pakistan Muslim League believed in improving standard of living of the people and the focus of the political parties should be on the interest of the people. He said elements spreading chaos in the country and politics should review their negative agenda.

Parvez urged the newly-elect members to play their role in national construction and progress.

Shehbaz did everything in personal interest in his 10-year rule
