Shehbaz talks of reconciliation in Pakistan Day message


Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly (NA) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on Wednesday felicitated the nation on the 82nd anniversary of the passage of Lahore resolution at Manto Park in 1940.

In his message on the eve of Pakistan Day, he said that Pakistan, which is a blessing of The Almighty Allah for the nation, was the result of countless prayers by the Muslims of the sub-continent. “The country came into being because of a democratic struggle of the Indian Muslims led by Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah,” he said.

PML-N president said he saluted those who had laid down their lives for the creation as well as defence of the country. “At the same time, we must not forget the ghazis as well,” he emphasized.

Shehbaz went on to add that during the last 75 years, Pakistan became an atomic power and progressed in other fields as well.

He said that today Pakistan, which was built brick by brick, was the pride of 22 crore people.

Leader of the Opposition in NA stressed the need for acting upon Quaid’s motto of ‘unity, faith and discipline’.

He was of the view that in order to make Pakistan a prosperous country, all political parties, which were genuine representatives of the masses, must agree on a ‘national agenda’.

“We have to create an atmosphere of reconciliation in the country,” Shehbaz stressed.

In the end, he expressed the resolve to work for the development of the country under the leadership of former prime minister and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif.
