LAHORE-The PML-N has submitted an adjournment motion in the National Assembly to draw federal governments attention towards massive loadshedding in Lahore, which has increased problems of dengue patients manifold besides impeding Punjab governments efforts to control spread of the deadly virus. This was told by Member National Assembly Khawaja Saad Rafique while addressing a news conference regarding the problems being created due to loadshedding and dengue virus here on Friday. He said that PML-N will record its protest against the load-shedding during National Assembly session to be held on Monday, as an adjournment motion in this regard had already been submitted. Apart from this, he added, a separate resolution duly signed by the MNAs belonging to Lahore will also be tabled in the National Assembly against load-shedding. He warned that if the government did not end load-shedding in Lahore, PML-N workers would come to the streets. Saad asked the federal government that if it could not help the Punjab government for eradication of dengue fever, it should not increase the problems of the dengue patients through load-shedding. He said that federal government was committing injustice with Punjab particularly Lahore in respect of unscheduled power outages. Kh. Saad said that on the one side, Lahorites were facing attack of dengue virus, while on the other, they were facing attack of load-shedding of Zardari. He said that people had been forced to sleep on roofs due to which the number of dengue patients was increasing. The PML-N legislator further said that the people of Punjab and Lahore were ready to face the load-shedding equal to other parts of the country but Lahore was being made target of 12 hours load-shedding intentionally. He asked Asif Zardari to end the load-shedding in the name of humanity and should not punish the Lahorites for supporting Mian Nawaz Sharif at this juncture. He said problems of dengue patients had increased manifold due to long load-shedding, and the patients under treatment in ICU wards were most vulnerable. He said that all efforts of medical experts, paramedics, officials of anti-mosquito spray, various government departments and social organizations for eradiation of dengue virus were becoming useless due to load-shedding. Replying to a question, Kh Saad Rafique said that short term and long term steps were are being taken for eradication of dengue virus and dengue control authority will be set up in Punjab for permanent solution of this problem for which provincial government will present a Bill in the next session of Punjab Assembly. He further said that a subject on dengue will be included in the syllabus of schools for creating awareness against dengue at public level. He disclosed that filter clinics had been set up for dengue patients by activating 300 dispensaries in Lahore. Principal Allama Iqbal Medical College Prof. Javed Ikram informed that two cell separators costing Rs. 80 lakh have burnt in Jinnah Hospital due to load-shedding. He demanded that instead of exempting presidency and Prime Minister House from load-shedding, hospitals of Lahore should be exempted from load-shedding for minimizing the sufferings of dengue patients. Members National Assembly Mian Merghoob Ahmad, Naseer Ahmad Bhutta, Mian Naseer Ahmad MPA, Vice Chancellor King Edward Medical University Prof Dr Asad Aslam Khan, Principal PGMI Prof Dr Tariq Salahuddin, Principal Allama Iqbal Medical College Prof Javed Ikram, Director General Health Punjab Dr Aslam Chaudhry, MS Mayo Hospital Dr Zahid Pervaiz and other officers were also present on the occasion.
