LAHORE PML-N President Nawaz Sharif said on Monday that government had failed to come up to his expectations but he and his party would not allow anyone to destroy Pakistan. Speaking during the balloting of the Yellow Cab Scheme at Al-Hamra Hall here on Wednesday, the former prime minister said it was a time to save the country instead of saving the politics. PML-N leaders Zulfiqar Khosa, Pervaiz Rashid, Mian Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman, Nawa-i-Waqt Group Deputy Managing Director Rameeza Majid Nizami, senior editors and columnists were present. Nawaz Sharif said he had directed Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to hold balloting for another 20,000 yellow cabs after the distribution of 20,000 cabs among the deserving youth. Terming past of the country glorious, Nawaz Sharif said he was worried about the present situation and future of Pakistan. He said Pakistan had been included amongst the most corrupt countries of the world as its resources were dwindling while the problems were increasing with every passing day. The institutions like the PIA stood on the verge of collapse, he regretted, adding the problems being faced by the country were the result of nepotism and corruption. Had there been supremacy of justice, constitution and rule of law and equal opportunities of employment for all citizens, Pakistan would not have to face the issue of provincialism, Nawaz commented. Pakistan is in danger and we should do politics for saving future of the country, he said. The former prime minister urged all political parties to shun the dynastic politics and focus their attention on saving the country. He termed his period of premiership a bright period and pledged to protect the country till his death. Nawaz said the situation was already precarious in Sindh and Balochistan, and now conspiracies were also being hatched to divide Punjab. He said his party would not let this happen and thwart all attempts of anti-state elements. He said the PML-N had sacked its Sindh chief minister who had failed to control law and order situation in the province at that time. He said his party set examples of merit and took resign of an MNA and MPA on complaints against them. He said the PML-N had the honour that in its tenure the people lived with pride and rapid progress was made in the country. He said political leaders of all the four provinces had joined hands for the abolishment of 8th Amendment under his tenure but now these political leaders had disillusioned. We introduced privatisation, constructed motorways and delivered cabs among masses, he counted. He asked the people to get themselves prepared in the wake of prevailing grave situation in the country, adding he was giving hope to the people despite deplorable conditions. He said it was unfortunate that while the people had taken to the streets against load-shedding, the federal government had been withholding two power plants having capacity of 900 MW at Karachi port for the last 10 months. Permission was not being granted for their installation in Punjab despite the fact that demurrage of billions of rupees had become due while China had put a penalty of $ 70 million, he added. He said he was highly disappointed with the present PPP-led government on various counts. He also accused President Zardari of stabbing him in the back, as he mentioned the imposition of Governors Rule in Punjab in February 2009 in his speech. He said the situation in the country would have been much better had Zardari not ditched him in the past on many occasions. Rejecting allegations of being a friendly opposition, he said after the PML-Ns long march for the restoration of deposed judiciary, the accusation carried no weight. He, however, said he did not care about such charges. The PML-N chief said the situation in Sindh was deteriorating and there was a conspiracy to split Punjab. He said it was a shame that Ameen Faheem was still a minister after admitting corruption and returning over Rs 30 million. He said whenever anyone was convicted by the superior courts, the president pardoned him within hours. He said Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah did not create Pakistan for such persons who strike alliance with 'Qatil League only to save their corrupt children. The PPP and Q-League alliance had come into existence so that Zardari could pardon the sentence of Moonis Elahi, he added. Meanwhile, balloting of applications for 2,961 vehicles for Lahore division under Khadim-e-Punjab Yellow Cab Scheme was held at Al-Hamra. Punjab Transport Minister Mian Mujtaba Shuja-ur-Rehman gave the details of the Yellow Cab Scheme. He informed that 20,000 Suzuki cars of Rs 8 billion were being distributed among the male and female youth from 21 to 35 years of age in every district of the province as per ratio of population and 40 per cent quota had been reserved for the districts of Southern Punjab. After the completion of distribution of 6,849 vehicles through transparent balloting in DG Khan, Multan and Rawalpindi divisions, transparent balloting would be held for 2,961 applicants as per separate quota allocated for 14 tehils of the four districts of Lahore Division. Balloting for Sahiwal and Sargodha divisions would be held on September 10, he said.
