Karachi, Jan 7(ANI): The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif while calling the PPP a 'national asset' has said that his party would be the first to fight any conspiracy against country's democratic system.
Sharif also said that the time was not right for political campaigns to remove the Government, as such moves had pushed the country into crises in the past.
"Pakistan today is facing several challenges. Terrorism, poverty, unemployment, price hike and loadshedding are major issues inherited from eight years of dictatorship. These problems could have been solved if mandate of all political parties was respected," The Dawn quoted Sharif, as saying.
"The country can progress only if it is run on democratic lines. The Charter of Democracy should be implemented, the 17th Amendment done away with and parliamentary democracy should be taken forward,' he added.
Sharif further urged all political parties to work together to steer the country out of the present crisis and to stop incidents of violence such as the attacks on the Youm-e-Ashur procession in Karachi, volleyball game in Lakki Marwat and the arson at Bolton Market.
"If we sit together like we are sitting here today this should be meaningful. In many countries leaders of different parties sit together and consult each other on important issues," Sharif said. (ANI)
