SADIQABAD - PML-N Rahim Yar Khan leader Mian Amir Shahbaz claimed that the N League was the only political party that was taking steps to ensure public prosperity and national development without any discrimination.

Addressing a public meeting at village Peer Shaheedan, the RY Khan city president of the party said that Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif took revolutionary steps during the current tenure for the development of Punjab especially South Punjab people. He expressed the hope that in the forthcoming general elections, the PML-N would emerge victorious across the country on the basis of performance. Politicians from other parties are joining the PML-N because of the performance of Nawaz Sharif and strengthening the party.

“The country is passing through a very critical phase therefore the people are concerned with the situation. The corrupt rulers have caused deteriorating circumstances in the country and bogged down her in crises. The public, resultantly, are taking to the streets. However, the PML-N during its two tenures, improved the image of Pakistan and put her on the path to prosperity and also solved the public grievances,” he said.

He said that the “unprecedented’ development carried out in the Punjab was incomparable with the other provinces’. Therefore, the Punjab people especially from South Punjab have pinned hope on the PML-N leadership again.

Earlier talking to various delegations of farmers and industrialists at his party’s Public Secretariat on the Club Road in tehsil Rahim Yar Khan, the PML-N leader said that the ongoing gas and electricity crises have sorely destroyed the national economy and the outages have paralysed the industries and agriculture sector.

The industrial workers and labourers have become unemployed and their families are facing starvation. And because of the destruction of agriculture sector, the farmers’ financial condition is going from bad to worse, he said.

During both the tenures of the PML-N, he claimed, the country made great strikes in agricultural and industrial sectors whereby the farmers and workers became prosperous. But, the PML-N leader said, Pervez Musharraf toppled the elected government and led the country to the bring of destruction and the incumbent PPP government added to the deteriorating situation. Because of flawed policies, the people were suffering severe crises of gas and electricity, he said and added that the consumers were paying inflated bills which equates to bury them alive.
