LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said, solution to the problems being faced by Pakistan and putting it on the road to progress and prosperity is the mission of PML-N led government and no effort will be spared for its achievement.
Addressing PML-N Punjab Assembly members, party office bearers and workers in Islamabad on Monday. he said, economy has improved due to prudent policies of the government and investment of billions of rupees is being poured in to the country while its foreign exchange reserves have also increased.
In such a situation, he said, there is no justification for politics of protest and anarchy. He said, Pakistan has embarked on the journey to development and prosperity and no revolutionary or long march can hamper this process.
He said, conspiracies of the enemies of progress and development will never succeed and the masses will bury their politics of damaging national unity and solidarity forever.
Shahbaz said, former rulers of Punjab set records of loot, corruption and nepotism in the name of development schemes and no uplift project
was completed during their tenure.
He said, PML-N government turned these graveyards of corruption into monuments to development, adding a corruption-free culture has been promoted in the province during last six years and mega development projects have been executed in a highly transparent manner.
He said, living standard of the masses has improved due to development programmes and welfare schemes of the Punjab government.
Shahbaz Sharif said, promotion of investment in the country is essential for elimination of poverty and unemployment while political stability is of vital importance for investment.
He said, it is lamentable that some elements have no interest in the national development or prosperity of the masses and want to destabilize the country to discourage foreign investors. However, he said, people of Pakistan are enlightened and will reject these elements and pay no heed to their calls for protest.
He said, situation prevailing in the country does not allow any long march or politics of anarchy and it is time to raise the morale of officers and jawans of armed forces who are fighting against terrorists to ensure a safe and secure future for the next generation.
