MULTAN - Chief Minister Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif Saturday dispelled the impression that Punjab government was restored under a deal, saying though many offers were received but all were turned down. This development (restoration of government) would have taken place before February 25, if any deal had been stricken by us, he said while answering a question on restoration of Punjab government during a news conference at local circuit house. Had we cut a deal, the PCO judges would not have handed disqualification verdict that led to the removal of Punjab government and there would have been no long march and restoration of judges, he asserted. He was of the opinion that first judicial murder in the history of Pakistan was committed in terms of Zulfiqar Ali Bhuttos hanging and the political murder was committed by removing Punjabs elected government. On joining the federal cabinet, Shahbaz said it would be premature to say anything. However, Ill respect the desire of PPP regarding inclusion of its MPAs in Punjab cabinet, he added. He lauded the role of Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani in defusing the recent political crisis, saying he played a very positive role. He pointed out that all development projects launched by his government came to a halt during the five-week long governors rule. The administration has apprised me of problems it faced during this period, he added. He assured that work on all the delayed projects would be expedited. He pledged to ensure availability of roti at Re1.If the government fails to provide 'sasti roti to the public, all other projects will be meaningless. Thats why weve decided to implement this project despite difficulties, he added. He regretted that the public would have been getting roti at Re1, had his government not been dislodged. He directed the Commissioner Multan to achieve the goal of availability of roti at the rate of Re1 at 500 tandoors (ovens) across the district. He revealed that the Punjab government would procure four million ton wheat at the rate of Rs950 per 40 kg. Weve made this decision in the best interest of wheat growers and well seek help from PASCO in this regard. He said the interests of rice growers would also be protected. He said the government had evolved a foolproof plan for ensuring availability of jute bags and making payments to the wheat growers. Lauding the performance of CPO Multan Saud Aziz, the CM directed him to immediately suspend DSP Riaz Hussain and launch inquiry against him. The Chief Minister issued orders for release of funds worth millions of rupees for development projects as he approved release of Rs150 million for purchase of machinery and dumper for solid waste management department besides announcing Rs68 million for provision of alternate shops to the traders of Shaheen Market. He asked the Commissioner to launch all development projects forthwith and monitor them personally. The CM directed officials concerned to spend Rs500 million on construction of big roads and Rs100 million on small roads out of a total of Rs600 million released by the Punjab government. He approved Rs90 million fund for uplift of WASA and asked the concerned authorities to ensure immediate release of funds. He warned the medical superintendent of Nishtar Hospital to make 15 new dialysis machines functional within one week or find a new job for himself. He said that kidney centre, children complex extension and prime minister package projects would soon be completed with the collaboration of Punjab government. He announced big city allowance for the workers of Nishtar Hospital. Mian Shahbaz Sharif expressed dissatisfaction over pace of Cardiology Centre development projects. He directed the RPO Multan to get the police rest house vacated within five days and hand over the land to the cardiology institute. He also directed the commissioner to look after affairs of cardiology centre and keep him abreast of the updates. PML-N Central Vice President Makhdoom Javed Hashmi, Adviser to the CM Sardar Zulfiqar Khosa, MPAs Syed Abdul Qadir Gillani, Amir Saed Ansari, Abdul Waheed Arrain, Mehdi Abbas Khan, Shahid Mahmood Khan, Rana Ijaz Noon, Naghma Mushtaq Lang and senior officers were also present on the occasion.
