“When we left, everything in the country was fine,” he said while responding to a journalist’s question on the country’s power crisis.

While speaking outside the accountability court on Monday, he shared that the PML-N government, which completed its constitutional tenure on May 31, had generated additional electricity and inaugurated many development projects.

The country was in good hands when PML-N was ruling, the ousted premier said.

“[Former prime minister] Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and [Chief Minister Punjab] Shehbaz Sharif inaugurated many projects before the tenure ended,” he remarked, adding that he had hoped to inaugurate motorways in Lahore, Multan and Sukkur as well. “We initiated 39 mega projects in the country. Has anyone ever done this before? Did anyone else build motorways?”

People know who the people who brought about darkness and who brought light, he added.

On May 28, Nawaz had compared the fake plane hijacking case against him with National Accountability Bureau’s references and termed them both as a ‘joke’.

While speaking to journalists outside the accountability court on Monday, he remarked that the nation neither accepts the plane hijacking case nor the current cases against him.
