CM says public services is best weapon to tackle opposition’s ‘abuse’

  • CM expresses grief over loss of life due to Indian shelling at Sialkot Working Boundary

LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) believes in tackling the abuse of political rivals through its policies of public service and development.

Talking to a delegation of party leaders, CM Shehbaz said that politics of protests and chaos is poison for development of the country and the nation. He said those who are doing such sort of politics are not only the enemies of the government but they are also putting a wager on the nation’s progress.

CM Shehbaz referring to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) said the sit-in group has done nothing except wasting time of the people for the last four and a half years.

He claimed these elements are afraid of the speedy progress of the country and went to say that “had these elements served the public in their [own] provinces, they would have no fear of facing the people in the coming polls.”

The CM said the PML-N strongly believes in the politics of democratic traditions and public service, adding the sit-in elements will face defeat once again when coming to the polls. He said the PML-N is doing the politics of economic uplift and public prosperity, and those doing politics of sit-ins are multiplying sufferings of the people.

He said unrest of these elements is increasing due to speedy progress of the country and now these elements are making a last-ditch effort to save their sinking boats.

He said the sit-in group has broken all previous records of abuses and allegations, but we will answer their abuses through public service. He said these people will remain opposing development, but we will keep serving the people.

CONDEMNS INDIAN SHELLING ALONG WB: Shehbaz Sharif also condemned the unprovoked firing and shelling by the Indian forces at various sectors of the Sialkot Working Boundary.

He expressed grief over the loss of human lives in the Indian forces firing and conveyed his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families.

The CM said special relief camps would be set up for the people who had migrated from the area along Working Boundary due to Indian shelling. The administration and the departments concerned would look after the migrants, he added.
