ZIARAT: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif Thursday called for an end to negative politics and subversion in the country and urged the parties holding Azadi March or Inqilab March to better work for the national development.
“The country cannot afford any more subversion and negative politics. Let us work for the country’s development. If we do not win next elections, they would at least inherit a developed country,” the Prime Minister said after inaugurating the rehabilitated building of Quaid-i-Azam Residency here.
The Residency was damaged in a terrorist attack in June last year and the government rehabilitated the national heritage to its original shape.
The project executed by prominent architect Nayyar Ali Dada, cost around Rs 140 million and completed in record time of five months.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by Balochistan Governor Muhammad Khan Achakzai, Chief Minister Abdul Malik Baloch, Minister for Information Pervaiz Rashid, Minister for SAFRON Abdul Qadir Baloch and Chief of the Army Staff General Raheel Sharif, besides provincial ministers.
The Prime Minister hoisted the national flag and unveiled the plaque to inaugurate the building where Father of the Nation Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah had spent last couple of months of his life.
He said it was the true Azadi March that both civil and military leadership were celebrating the Independence Day here together and prayed that it should continue in the years to come.
He said the country could attain heights of progress and prosperity if it got a decade of peace without any interruption.
He said during peaceful 10 years, all the disparities in the society could be removed, with the people getting full attention from the government. “But this requires devotion and hard work,” the Prime Minister remarked.
Lauding the completion of Residency’s rehabilitation project in record time, he said,” If we show same sprit and dedication for national development, the country can reach its destination within months.”
