LAHORE: Confident that the forthcoming general election will bring the party into power, the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz is devising its policies in a way that the masses feel an immediate change on political, economic and social fronts.

“The party is formulating plans, some of which will be accomplished within 10 days, others in 100 days and the remaining in a year after assuming power to boost morale of the masses in general and investors in particular and to build their trust in the country’s future,” a senior PML-N leader said ysterday.

However, the PML-N man would not share what particularly could be done within 10 days of assuming power.

Another party elder, who had also attended the manifesto committee meeting on Saturday, however, hinted that tackling the circular debt of independent power producers (IPPs), presently amounting to around Rs400 billion, was one of the measures that could be taken within the shortest possible time.

Insisting 10 days were enough for changing the situation if there is a will to do so, he said even a statement by a figure like the prime minister or foreign minister could do it on foreign front and an SRO by the Federal Board of Revenue could significantly affect the economic policy.

Another step that could be announced immediately was setting up a national commission on new provinces, the official said.

He said these policies would be included in the manifesto to woo voters.                   internews
