Sharif was addressing the laptop distribution ceremony at the Punjab University in Lahore on Friday.

We are providing students laptops not guns as PML-N wanted to bring a change, Nawaz said.

The PML-N president said dictatorships had divided the Pakistani nation into many sections and India was progressing because democracy was nurtured there.

'Today we are facing an energy crisis but in our days Pakistan was able to export electricity to India, and all the countries in our region were lagging behind us.'

God willing this nation will stand up again, Nawaz hoped.
