Once he (Wyne) presented few copies of daily Nawa-i-Waqt, which were kept in an old iron box and said he had carried these copies from Amritsar while migrating to Pakistan, Majid Nizami remembered. He said Wyne had risen to the office of the Punjab chief minister from an ordinary Muslim League worker from that area where the rulers had been feudal lords. Majida Wyne paid tribute to Majid Nizami over holding death anniversary of Ghulam Haider Wyne in a befitting manner. She said Wyne never lost election from his constituency causing concern to his political rivals and ultimately to his killing. She stressed the need of united Muslim League under the banner of a sincere leader. She criticised the rulers who are plundering the national exchequer. Rana said that Wyne was a practical man and do whatever he said. He said that Wyne had attained the position of CM Punjab by sheer hard work and honesty. He had worked for the welfare of common man and the poor and he would be remembered as an asset of Pakistan, Rana added. He regretted that the country has now overwhelmed by inflation, terrorism, poverty and devastated floods. We should try to achieve the Quaids objectives for securing the future of the country, Rana said. Dr Rafiq Ahmed said that the country had scarcity of sincere leaders while Wyne was a great and sincere leader. He had built a net of educational institutions in Mian Channu and as an advocate of Pakistan Ideology he had built Nazaria-i-Pakistan Trust. Islamia College on Railway Road, Lahore had been the centre of the Pakistan movement and government should pay due attention to develop it as a university which was the dream of late Wyne, he added. Speakers paid tribute to Wyne and remembered him as an honest politician who led a simple and honourable life. They said that country was facing severe challenges and needed leaders like Haider Wyne. On the occasion, Principal Talent High School Township Azeem Awan presented a cheque of Rs25,000 to Majid Nizami for Nawa-i-Waqt flood relief fund.
