LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif said on Saturday that the politics of those who damaged national economy would be wiped out in general elections 2018.
Talking to parliamentarians here, he said opponents were afraid of rapid development and progress in the country, and these negative politicians should stop playing with countrymen’s fate and let Pakistan progress.
Shehbaz Sharif said, “Our opponents are afraid of four years successful period of PML-N government and they are frightened that elimination of load shedding by PML-N government will end their politics.”
He said, political performers who had looted national resources were also supporting the sit-in group and Niazi sahib should look around and he would see those who had got hefty loans written off and land grabbers.
It was unfortunate that Niazi sahib had not learnt any lesson from repeated defeats in the past and the history book would record his name among those who conspired against Pakistan’s development and prosperity, he maintained.
The Chief Minister said those who held new jugglery daily and were trying to bring bad luck to the people, should mend their ways as efforts had been made in the past to damage development process through sit-ins, lockdown, civil disobedience and protests, but the common man distanced himself from politics of violence and protest as well as foiled negative designs of such elements from general elections to by-elections and local government elections.
He said the person responsible for the criminal delay in Nandipur Power Project due to loot and plunder had taken refuge in accountability party, adding that one party gave shadows of darkness to the country due to its corruption and the second party obstructed power projects through protests. Main objective of those leveling allegations against elected leadership, he said, was to hinder development process in the country. Opponents of progress should realize that every trick of their negative politics had failed, he added.
He said that father of a political child had broken all records of corruption in the country and every day of the former rulers had dawned with a new scandal of corruption for the poor nation. Those got loans of billions of rupees written off and now pretend to be aristocrats should also be brought to justice because writing off loans was also a crime and indiscriminate accountability of all those should be carried out who were involved in the loot of national resources, he suggested.
He said that baseless allegations leveled against the leadership of the PML-N had not even a remotest link with the reality and stories of lies had been fabricated by the liar politicians.
Shehbaz Sharif said that Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif had put Pakistan on road to progress and prosperity but those leveling baseless allegations wanted to upset this process but the people would not be hoodwinked by these juggler politicians. The PML-N government would continue implementing its manifesto of public service, he resolved.
The parliamentarians, who met the Chief Minister, included MNAs Parvaiz Malik, Asadur Rehman, Khalid Javed Warriach and MPA Mehmood Qadir Khan. – APP
