Islamabad: Warning that security of Pakistan
is at stake, former Premier and opposition leader Nawaz Sharif
has said there are fears about the future of the country which
is becoming "isolated" and sought unity among its people.
"The country`s security is at stake. Sindh province is
passing through an adverse situation. Conspiracies are being
hatched to divide Punjab. We have to save Pakistan and not
politics. We will frustrate the nefarious designs of the
elements that are causing harm to Pakistan," he said.
There is "turmoil" in the country, Sharif, the leader of
main opposition PML-N, said yesterday. "Pakistan is being
rated among the most corrupt countries of the world. It has
becoming isolated. There are fears about its future. No one is
standing with it."
"We all will have to get united today. The PML-N has
never compromised on principles. It is not a party which plays
the politics of blood-letting. We paid the price in the form
of the dissolution of our government following the break-up of
our alliance with the MQM," he said.
"We were taunted as the friendly opposition. Does a
friendly opposition launch long marches? Governor`s rule was
imposed after dissolving our government in Punjab," Sharif
