Holding elections is the quickest way to recommence Pakistan's journey towards prosperity," the PML leader said while talking to reporters alongside JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman.
He said "we will have to work day and night and utilise all resources to bring the country back to the pre-2018 state".
He reiterated his call for launching a movement against the government over "unprecedented inflation" which he said had caused hardships for the masses.
The PML-N leader said the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), an alliance of opposition parties, was united in its cause and that raising a voice against inflation was the right of the people.
Shehbaz called out Prime Minister Imran Khan for "improper handling of sensitive matters", saying "history is a witness to sacrifices rendered by the institution responsible for Pakistan's defence. Even Modi could not harm it the way Imran did".
Speaking to media, the JUI-F chief lambasted the government for sacking several government officials from different department, saying the situation was really serious.
He said opposition parties would have to think of ways to steer the country out of this crisis.
Fazl said reports were circulating on media for the last couple of days about the army, which he said was an important institution for Pakistan. He hailed the "unity of command" and the public support the army enjoyed but went on to say that the premier had "harmed that institution".
"I am not talking about internal matters. We can differ on political fronts, but we want to see this institution disciplined and strengthened for the country's defence," he said.
To a question Mualana Fazalur Rehman said the PDM was very much intact and active.
He said the forum was scheduled to hold public gatherings in Faisalabad on October 16 and in Dera Ismail Khan on October 31.
Green shirts on firm footing for victory against Bangladesh in first test match
Setting a target of 202, the green shirts reached 109-0 at stumps and need only 93 runs on the final day on Tuesday.
CHITTAGONG: Both Pakistani openers Abid Ali and Abdullah Shafique smashed an unbeaten fifty on Monday to put the Men In Green in a commanding position in the first Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong.
Ali was batting on 56 at the end of the day's play, adding to his first-innings score of 133, while debutant Shafique was unbeaten on 53.
Fast bowler Shaheen Afridi earlier claimed 5-32 to help Pakistan bowl out Bangladesh for 157 runs in their second innings despite wicketkeeper-batsman Liton Das making a fighting fifty.
Resuming on 39-4, Bangladesh looked down and out once they lost Mushfiqur Rahim in the first over of the day, before Liton, who struck a hundred in the first innings, hauled the hosts back to respectability with 59 off 89 balls.
Afridi trapped Liton leg-before and then had Abu Jayed out for a duck to complete his fourth five-wicket Test haul.
Off-spinner Sajid Khan, who finished with 3-33, wrapped things up by dispatching Taijul Islam.
The hosts had got off to a positive start with Mushfiqur hitting a boundary off the first ball of the morning, bowled by Hasan Ali.
But two balls later he left a wrong delivery and departed for 16 after Hasan struck off-stump.
Liton joined overnight batsman Yasir Ali to prevent further collapse.
Just when they looked ready to prosper, Afridi's low bounce hit the helmet of Yasir, who retired hurt after making 36.
Liton survived on 26 when he was given out, caught at short leg off Sajid Khan.
The replay showed that the ball only hit his pad and was going down the leg.
Sajid was rewarded for his persistence as he trapped Mehidy Hasan leg-before for 11.
Substitute Nurul Hasan replaced Yasir after Mehidy's dismissal and barely survived a strong caught-behind appeal just before lunch.
Nurul heaved one at long-on to Faheem Ashraf off Sajid after the break, getting dismissed for 15, and Pakistan took little time to take the remaining wickets.
Bangladesh have failed to defeat Pakistan in any of their 10 previous encounters.
Rocker Bryan Adams, other music starts perform in Pirelli calendar
Cher, Rita Ora, Iggy Pop, Jennifer Hudson and other music stars take centre stage in the 2022 Pirelli calendar unveiled on Monday, shot by Canadian rocker and photographer Bryan Adams.
However the 62-year-old was unable to unveil his take of the famed calendar in person in Milan after testing positive for COVID-19 upon arrival in Italy last week. He joined a press conference remotely via video.
Called "On The Road", the calendar seeks to depict a day in the life of a touring musician.
Its cover shows guitarist and singer St. Vincent posing with a Pirelli guitar pick on her tongue. It features pictures of Cher and Pop in dressing rooms, Ora in the bath, rapper Saweetie pushing a luggage trolley and Hudson surrounded by flowers.
Rapper Bohan Phoenix poses on a piano while musician Grimes' photo is set in a futuristic setting. Adams, who snapped the photos in Los Angeles, Capri and Canada last summer, also features.
"With all these pictures, fantasy plays a big part in trying to create something," he said in a statement. "Because you don't want it to be literal, you want it to be glamorous, yet it gives the impression of what it might be like."
Adams said last week that he had tested positive for COVID-19 after flying into Milan and was going to hospital. It was the second time in a month he had tested positive for the virus. He has since posted photos, thanking doctors and nurses looking after him.
Adams is best known for songs like "Summer of ‘69", "Heaven" and "(Everything I Do) I Do It for You".
As a photographer, he has snapped Mick Jagger and Naomi Campbell, as well as Britain's Queen Elizabeth. He has also published books of his photos, including one on injured British soldiers.
First published in the 1960s, the Pirelli calendar has a limited run and is usually gifted to the company's clients. In recent years, it has moved away from featuring images of scantily-dressed models to more artistic themes, featuring various celebrities.
The 2021 edition was suspended due to the pandemic.
