The Prime Minister in his message said the best way to pay tribute to Quaid-e-Azam is to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state. He stressed the need to put an end to internal differences and work tirelessly for progress of the country.
Meanwhile: in a tweet on Sunday Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif says adherence to the Quaid's ideology can make us defeat all the odds. He expressed the resolve to keep working for the well-being of our people.
