MULTAN : Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday said that the continuity of democratic system is imperative for development in the country.

 

In his statement about the 12 October,1999 coup, he said

the day is remembered as black day in the history of the

country when a dictator derailed democracy and halted

the process of development.

 

The CM said PML-N government is striving hard for the

development of the county.

darkest day of political and democratic history of the

country.

Pakistan, adding that the nation is still bearing the

brunt of the fallout of the military government, which

inflicted immense losses on both the country and people.

 

Shahbaz said had it not been for the coup, the situation

in Pakistan would have been different altogether. He

resolved that no such step against democracy and

constitution would be allowed to succeed in future.

democracy is the only way out for the challenges the

country is facing.

 

He said that politics for personal interests need to be

buried in greater interests of the country.
