The Prime Minister said loadshedding has been overcome there will also be no gas shortage from now on.
He said that his party had made efforts to end the gas and electricity deficit in Pakistan.
“Our government was faced with a lot of issues when we came to power,” he said. “Electricity and gas load-shedding were realities that Nawaz told me to tackle when I first became the prime minister.”Lashing out at his political rivals, Abbasi said former presidents Pervez Musharraf and Asif Ali Zardari, both, had done nothing to improve the country’s condition.
He alleged that the former governments had only worked to fill their own pockets, but the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) had addressed the issues faced by the country.
“We continued on the road to development,” he said, adding that those who had created problems for the country were making speeches every day.
“Imran has forgotten how he used to lament that Asif Zardari had bought fourteen PTI MNAs. And when the time to elect the chairman of Senate, he voted for Zardari’s candidate.”He said he had visited the Chief Justice of Pakistan Saqib Nisar as a ‘faryadi’ of the country.

They came to visit me,” Justice Nisar was quoted as saying.Abbasi said his opponents had a problem with his meeting with the chief justice and have leveled allegations that he visited him as a ‘faryadi’.
“They said I visited the chief justice as a ‘faryadi’ [complainant],” he said, “so yes, I did go to him as a faryadi…as a ‘faryadi’ of this country.”
“My witness is the chief justice,” he said. “I don’t want to discuss the meeting but I can tell you that we did not discuss any personal issues.”Abbasi said he had contacted Justice Nisar to discuss issues faced by the country.
