LAHORE (Agencies) - Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Saturday alleged he was getting threats from President Asif Ali Zardari. He was addressing a big public gathering on the occasion of inaugural of a flyover at Bahawalpur on Saturday. He said: Life and death is in Allahs hands. I know where the threats are coming from. They cannot scare me for exposing the corruption perpetrated by the PPP leadership. He said: Every sacrifice can be offered for getting rid of Ali Baba 40 thieves. I cant be called Shahhaz Sharif if I fail to provide justice by recovering the plundered money from these thieves, Shahbaz challenged. He said they were ready to set up new provinces but these should be established on national basis instead of Punjab only. He suggested to constitute a commission comprising all political elites of the four provinces which would formulate its recommendations by considering distribution of resources for setting up new provinces. He said the rulers of the past who belonged to Multan, Bahawalpur and Dera Ghazi Khan remained president, prime minister and enjoyed other important offices but did nothing for these areas. He said thieves and plunderers had gathered in Islamabad for pushing the country into darkness. Resources of the country were being looted, the CM said, adding Zardari was transferring the public money to the Swiss banks. He said the accused of NICL case was being protected, adding the govt was flouting all orders of the Supreme Court. It was deceiving the people belonging to Bahawalpur but they would not allow them to do so, Shahbaz said. He said 400 Megawatt power project of Nandipur was pending in Islamabad for one and a half years. Had this project been completed, jobs could have been provided to thousands of people, he added. He said machinery of millions of rupees was rotting in godowns of Karachi for which millions of rupees were being paid as charges for no reason. He said some days ago he had informed the prime minister during the meeting that national resources were being looted ruthlessly. He said he was receiving threats for exposing corruption of the PPP-led government. He said an increase of more than Rs30 billion had been made in the development budget during the last three and a half years for the development projects in southern Punjab besides a huge amount of Rs70 billion allocated for this area. Shahbaz said the Punjab government had launched the project of mobile hospitals for providing modern medical facilities to the people of far-flung and backward areas, adding he had allocated six mobile hospitals for Southern Punjab, of which, one is for Bahawalpur. Another project of Daanish School had also been started in Bahawalpur Division where poor children and orphans would be able to get free education. He said a 400 bedded modern hospital was being constructed here and latest medical facilities would be made available to the people. Earlier, the chief minister inaugurated the project of a flyover constructed at the cost of Rs 670 million. He also inaugurated a model bazaar of l3ahawalpur and inspected various stalls.
