LAHORE - Nawaz Sharif on Thursday took credit for the Saudi Crown Prince aid package for Pakidtah.

He said agreements were done with Saudi Arabia during PML-N’s tenure and that the crown prince had signed aid package with him.

Speaking to party leaders at Kot Lakhpat prison, Nawaz said motorways and health cards were all PML-N's plans. “The current government is relaunching our projects and is trying to take credit for it,” he said.

The PML-N leader further said trade talks with Saudi Arabia were finalised during his tenure. "The Saudi crown prince finalised aid package with me. It takes time to settle international matters,” Nawaz added.

“If we were in power, people would be travelling in Orange Train. We left the Lahore-Multan motorway almost complete for them and they could not even finish that. They could not even complete the Lahore-Multan interchange,” the former prime minister added.

“There was a web of highways laid down in our tenure in Balochistan. They can take the credit for our plans but they should open them for the public,” Nawaz said.
