LAHORE – Chief Minister of Punjab Miyan Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif Tuesday said due to the obstinacy of the ‘sit-in party’, the national economy was severely affected, as an attempt was made to ruin the economy through sit-ins and a lockdown.
“After the failure of the sit-ins and lockdown, these elements have reappeared in a new guise. Despite failure of sit-ins and lockdown, Niazi Sahib has learnt no lesson from the history. It is unbecoming of Niazi Sahib to talk about accountability after partnering the corrupt elements,” he added.
He expressed these views while talking to the elected representatives, who called on him here on Tuesday.
The chief minister said that groundless allegations levelled against the most-transparent elected leadership of the country had no value, adding that no corruption scandal came out in the tenure of the Muslim League-N government. In fact, rapidly completing energy and other development projects had made the opponents unnerved because they were fearful that the completion of the most transparent projects would put an end to their negative politics, he added.
The chief minister said that the sun of Niazi Sahib rises every morning with a new lie, as the head of the ‘sit-ins party’ was devoid of any ethics and understanding of democratic norms.
He said that the people who had got their loans worth billions of rupees written-off were standing with Niazi Sahib.
The chief minister said that the four years rule was witness to the PML-N government’s transparency and a new example had been set by saving national resources worth billions of rupees through transparency in the development projects. He said that politics of chaos was very dangerous for Pakistan.
He said that the conscious people would never let the nefarious designs of such elements succeed, who were trying to push back the country through their negative politics.
Shehbaz Sharif said that the secret of national development lied in unity and not in disunity and they should adopt the policy of collectivism, instead of individualism in the larger interest of the country. – APP
