Chairman of National Business Group Pakistan, President Pakistan Businessmen and Intellectuals Forum, and All Karachi Industrial Alliance, and former provincial minister Mian Zahid Hussain said on Monday that the business community is pinning high hopes on the return of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. He said that his return would result in balanced politics and political stability that would help the people and the economy.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that despite jail, exile, and other difficulties, the former prime minister did not try to incite the public in his speech, nor did he talk about any revenge, proof of his political insight.
Talking to the business community, the veteran business leader said that the former prime minister did not make any tall claims or vowed to jail the opponents, which shows that he does not want the politics of chaos in the country.
He added that the people and the business community have breathed a sigh of relief after his speech because the country cannot afford any more protests and politics of conflict.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that the former prime minister did not mention the armed forces and the judiciary despite complaints, which shows that he wants to forget the past and move forward.
The business leader added that overall, Nawaz Sharif’s address was serious, balanced, and thought-provoking, in which he made it clear that the politics of confrontation are pushing the country backwards.
He no longer believes in such negative struggles against important institutions, which are harmful and must be avoided; he added that he will now fight against poverty, inflation, insecurity, and injustice instead of politicians, bureaucracy, and institutions.
Mian Zahid Hussain said that the political forces destroying Pakistan by claiming to make it a paradise should not poison the political atmosphere for their interests and should not misguide the people because their past performance is not a secret.
Mian Nawaz Sharif is aware of his political and economic mistakes and is determined to get the country out of its current problems. If he moves in the right direction and announces a viable economic program, he will have the full support of the public, the business community, and all major institutions.
All the stakeholders have realised that saving the country and reviving the economy are top priorities without which we have no future.
