Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has called for fully realizing the dream of our founding fathers of establishing socio-economic justice, rule of law and an egalitarian society in Pakistan.
In a series of tweets on Sunday, he said as we celebrate our hard-earned independence, our country at this stage demands deep reflection to understand that true freedom is the one from want, hunger and poverty and without economic sovereignty it is incomplete.
The Prime Minister said our greatest strength is our people and now is the time that their welfare be placed at the center of the public policy.
He said establishment of Pakistan was a miracle and one of the biggest developments of the 20th century, which was made possible under the dynamic leadership of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and sacrifices of Muslims. He said they faced heavy odds but their will to defeat was stronger.
