PM Shehbaz Holds ‘Political Turbulence’ Responsible For Economic Crisis
Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that "political turbulence" is the main cause of the current economic instability.

In his message on the 83rd anniversary of Pakistan Day, he urged the people to remember the founders' sacrifices while keeping an eye on the problems the nation faces today.

"The inability to agree on game rules and the state of the economy are the two biggest challenges."  "We have been unable to build a viable economy because of the political atmosphere," he added.

The premier stated, "The citizens of Pakistan must build unity in their ranks, equip themselves with a sense of national purpose, and promise to wage a struggle in keeping with the legacy of their forebears if they are to reach great heights."

"Let's use today to reflect on and evaluate our actions. True grandeur can only be attained by nations that are able to examine their past, learn from their errors, and make reparations," he added.

Meanwhile, in his message on the occasion of Pakistan Day, President Arif Alvi said that the brutality, violations of human rights, and persecution of minorities in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK) were evidence that the Muslim leadership at the time made a wise choice.

President Alvi remarked, "This day also serves as a reminder to take stock of our triumphs and weaknesses as a nation."

"We still have a long way to go to ensure the rule of law, strengthen democracy, reduce societal inequalities, empower women, provide for the rights of people with disabilities, eradicate terrorism and extremism, ensure the political and economic stability of the nation, and protect the human rights of our citizens," he added.

With several events scheduled around the country today (March 23), the nation is fervently and zealously commemorating the 83rd Pakistan Day. The day is marked in remembrance of the momentous Lahore Resolution, which was adopted on March 23, 1940, and set the subcontinent's Muslims' goal of creating a separate nation.
