PML-N not serious about ending load shedding: Zaheer

Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid-e-Azam Punjab General Secretary Ch Zaheer-ud-Din Khan has said if Punjab’s rulers seriously wanted to end electricity load shedding, they would not have opposed the formula given by Ch Shujat Hussain.
Addressing a press conference at the Muslim League House on Friday, Zaheer-ud-Din Khan who is also a PML leader in the Provincial Assembly said the PML-N had been an ally of the PPP for three and half years but was unaware of the electricity crisis. He said the forces opposed to the construction of the Kalabagh Dam are also responsible for the electricity load shedding in the province and in the country.
Replying to questions, Khan said the PML-N does not have any intention to hold the local body elections and that the legislation card is being played only to delay the implementation of the Supreme Court’s orders to hold the local body polls.
He said his party had joined the federal government to resolve the problems of the people and that they were not an ally in electricity load shedding
The PML-Q leader said the Punjab government had used the Rs 2, 000 billion budget in four years but that there were no signs of development work anywhere in the province.
Khan said the rulers had suspended the Sasti Roti Scheme and the Food Support Programme themselves because of corruption, adding that the fate of the laptops, Ashiana and Yellow Cab Schemes would not be any different.
In reply to a question, Zaheer-ud-Din stated that if the people joining the PML-N had consulted Ch Akhtar Rasool before doing so, they would not have given the matter another thought.
PML-Q leaders Mian Muhammad Munir, Lahore President Yousuf Ahad Malik, Haji Imdad Hussain, Rehana Jamil and Shaikh Umar Hayat jointly contradicted the news about their joining the PML-N and reiterated their confidence in the leadership of Ch Shujat Hussain and Ch Parvez Elahi.
Yousuf Malik said 48 cases had been instituted against him only because he was the PML-Q Lahore president.
Provincial Information Secretary Muhammad Akram Chaudhry, Punjab Additional General Secretary Nasir Mahmud Gill and Youth Wing Central Secretary General Syed Bilal Mustafa Sheerazi were among those present at the press conference.
