LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said the government of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) always prioritises national interests, adding that projects of national development have been moved further with high-quality and speed despite different obstacles.
He was talking to members of the assembly belonging to different districts of the province who called on him on Friday. The chief minister said that elements that staged sit-in are trying to create hindrances in the country again for their personal agenda and added that these defeated political elements are showing enmity towards the nation with the politics of chaos for their personal gains. The national stability is pivotal for development and prosperity and the projects initiated during the present tenure of PML-N have no competition in the 70 year history of Pakistan.
Every project of the present government is a symbol of transparency, high-quality and speed, while billions of rupees have also been saved in various mega projects. On one side, the stories of transparency and public service have been written and on the other side, mendacity and baseless allegations have been alleged, he said. The elements involved in levelling baseless allegations and concocted blames are not sincere to the nation, he added. He said that the nation will hold strict accountability of these elements in the elections of 2018.
Those who called on the chief minister included MNAs Rana Muhammad Hayat and Muhammad Moin Wattoo, Special Assistant Malik Saleem Iqbal, MPAs Mehdi Abbas Langha and Mehmood ul Hassan, Gujranwala District Council Chairman Mazhar Qayyum Nahra and Mudassar Qayyum Nahra.
