RAWALPINDI: Former prime minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Tuesday inaugurated his central election office in Shamsabad, where he plans to campaign for national assembly constituency NA-57 and provincial assembly constituency PP-6. Addressing the crowd gathered at the office, Abbasi said that the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid (PML-Q) had done nothing for the welfare of the people.
On the other hand, he said that the Pakistan Muslim League–Nawaz (PML-N) put the country back on the track of development by building roads, motorways, the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) and other projects. He claimed that the party will win the upcoming general elections with a majority. “PML-N was the largest party of the country and had the support of the people,” he said. Earlier, workers and supporters gave a warm welcome to the former prime minister as they held aloft party flags, and portraits of deposed premier Nawaz Sharif and former Punjab chief minister Shahbaz Sharif.
