He was addressing his farewell speech in the joint session of parliament. The premier thanked all the lawmakers for working for the betterment of the country during the 16-months stint of the PDM. The PM said that 13 parties rainbow coalition government was unique incident in country’s history. Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif blamed the previous government of Imran Khan for damaging Pakistan’s bilateral relations with friendly and brotherly countries.

The premier said the May 9 events humiliated the soldiers and martyrs of the Pakistan Army. He termed the 16 months of the PDM government the most difficult test of his life.

Shehbaz Sharif paid tribute and expressed gratitude to Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chairman and former president Asif Ali Zardari for showing unity with the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) government. He said Zardari extended all-out efforts to ensure continuation of the government. The premier also credited Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari with his diplomatic performance.
