Opposition for the sake of opposition should be avoided: Zubair


Sindh Governor Muhammad Zubair said Saturday that as the next general elections are round the corner all the major political parties must focus on their economic agenda with a clear vision of moving forward in the right direction by making maximum use of hard work put in by the present government.
This he said while addressing a consultative meeting of CEO Club at a local hotel here. Ikram Saigal, Shabbar Zaidi, Dr Huma Baqai, Ms Sultana Siddiqui, Javed Akai, Aijaz Nisar and prominent CEOs were also present on the occasion. The governor said, “Our collective focus should be on economy as the future progress and prosperity lie in strong economy. All political parties must unite and make coordinated efforts to showcase Pakistan to the global community.”
Zubair further said that opposition for the sake of opposition must be avoided, and the next government and opposition must work together to nullify the negative perception of our country. The recent example of world economic forum in Davos must be followed when and where possible, where Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Pakistan People’s Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari shared the stage and spoke about the real picture of Pakistan which was far better than reality, he added.
The governor said that there should be no politics when it came to national cause and interests and we must all present case of Pakistan with one united voice to show the world that there was no difference amongst us. He also said that economic decisions must be left for the experts and there should be no influence or pressure from the government in this regard. ‘If economic experts independently make a decision by considering and following all required procedures, it would be beneficial for our economy’, he observed.
He said that present government has performed exceptionally well on the economic front considering all sorts of hurdles it faced during the tenure. The scenario of 2013 has been changed with considerable improvement in law and order, energy situation and investment opportunities, he added.
He said that Karachi has been completely transformed during present government’s tenure as compared with 2013 improvement. The governor said that with the determination, support and pledge of government and untiring efforts of our law-enforcement agencies, Karachi was now returning to its past glory. Social, cultural, economic, literary and sports activities were in full swing and Karachiites were enjoying their daily routine without any fear, he observed.
