Negative politics has affected economy: PM
Prime Minister says poverty, unemployment and terrorism are the real issues facing the people.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said those trying to impede the process of development through sit-ins should demonstrate political maturity.
Talking to the media persons in Islamabad on Monday [27 October], he said it appears as if they have no interest in the prosperity of the country. The game being played by them is highly inappropriate.
The prime minister strongly criticized the politics of sit-ins and said we need to focus on issues, including poverty, unemployment, terrorism and security challenges.
He said Pakistan is viewed positively by the global community and those pursuing politics of sit-ins should not distort this image. He said the negative politics has caused huge damage to the country's economy. This led to the cancellation of the Chinese president's visit and resulted in depreciation of rupee.
