LAHORE: (APP) Brushing aside the tall claims and repeated predictions by certain opposition leaders, Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Friday said the incumbent government would not only complete its five-year term but would also come to power again after 2018 polls due to its development agenda .
"Three and a half years have passed. One and a half year is remaining. It will follow the elections and Allah will bestow us with power again," the prime minister said addressing a public gathering after launching work on Rs 24 billion Lahore Eastern Bypass at Kala Shah Kaku here.
He said the wise political leader was the one who perceived the public desire, who just wanted deliverance from poverty, hunger, unemployment and inflation, besides wishing for colleges, hospitals and motorways.
The prime minister, who was accompanied by Minister for Defense Production Rana Tanveer Hussain and other party leaders told the gathering of thousands of party workers that in the bye-polls in Jhelum and Burewala, people have proved what they desired.
He said the two so-called leaders had been predicting the fall of the present government and trying to launch movement against it.
"You could have come to power in 2013 but now your chances are over," he remarked addressing an opposition party without naming it.
