LAHORE -  Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif said that selfless public service has been continuously pursued by the government.

“We have been trying to fulfill the commitment to serve public since 2013 and due to our hard work and sincere efforts; we are successful in public court today. The people cannot be served through lipserve and has to burn the midnight oil to achieve the target” he said while talking to his party leaders.

He took swipe at PTI chief Imran Khan saying: “Niazi Sahib raised hollow slogans of public service as his party ruined KP. That’s why, Niazi Sahib is afraid of facing the public court.”

He cited the PML-N victory in Lodrhan by-elections as an example of public trust on his party.

“The government has not let the journey of national development to stop despite sit-ins and lockdown. The rich remained unsuccessful in by-election of Lodhran while a saintly figure of PML-N has won. This by-election is a slap on the face of liars and the elements leveling baseless allegations. The people will give their votes to those doing the politics of public service in future as well,” he added.
