SHAHKOT - PML-N MNA and Chairman NA Standing Committee Ch Barjees Tahir and MPA Rana Muhammad Arshad have stated that they can snatch bread from the mouth of the poor and make them unemployed in the name of operation against encroachments. Both the PML-N parliamentarians were addressing the oath-taking ceremony of Anjuman-e-Tajran Tehsil Shahkot here the other day. Speaking on the occasion, PML-N stalwart Ch Barjees Tahir claimed that he was the each and every person of his constituency irrespective of any political affiliation. He said that he felt proud in peoples service and his doors were always opened for all and sundry. MNA Barjees Tahir also paid glowing tribute to those party workers who stood by the party leadership during the dictatorial rule, saying that such devoted and staunch workers and activists were the real asset to the party. In his speech, MPA Rana Muhammad Arshad announced the construction of new roads in all four main bazaars of the city, saying that work on these roads would be started soon. The local trading community kept their shops closed and accorded arousing welcome to both the PML-N leaders and showered tons of rose petals over them. On the occasion, Ch Muhammad Arshad Sahi, Ch Zulfiqar Sindhu, Anjuman-e-Tajran Tehsil Shahkot President Ch Javed Sindhu and General Secretary Muhammad Arshad Bhatti thanked both the leaders on behalf of people of the tehsil. Later, talking to the media MNA Ch Barjees Tahir said that if the government did not establish commissions to probe the Abbottabad and Navel Base tragedies it would be disastrous for the national sovereignty. I could not grasp as to why the government has been dragging its feet over forming an independent commission to probe both the incidents which have shocked the entire nation and have put question marks on the national sovereignty and security, he pointed out, adding that the policies of the incumbent government were the continuation of the dictatorial regime which had made the country vulnerable to terrorists and multiple crises.
