LAHORE - PML-N MNA Hamza Shahabaz Sahrif has said the continuity of the democratic process is a guarantee to progress and stability of the country.

The PML-N government strongly believes in the wellbeing and uplift of the common man and it was making every effort to live up to this goal, Hamza said while talking to a delegation of the PML-N Lawyers Forum which called on him on Wednesday.

PML-N City President Muhammad Pervez Malik, former MNA Ch Naseer Ahmad Bhutta and Wali Muhammad Khan were also present on the occasion.

With reference to the protest politics of PTI last year, Hamza said it has caused immense loss to the national economy and the nation will hold those who accountable in the next election who impeded national progress and practiced U-turns after giving huge losses to the country.

“The government has launched a number of projects in energy and social sectors which will change destiny of the nation in the coming time,” he added. He appreciated the cooperation and investment made by China in Pakistan and said it was credit to the N-government that China and other states in the world trusted Pakistan and were willing to put money in different projects.

He said a number of energy projects had been started to completely end loadshedding and produce surplus energy by 2018. He said the Pakistan-China Economic Corridor project will be a game changer in the regions as it will financially benefit millions of people.

On terrorism he said, the government was determined to root out this scourge once and for all after military operation Zarbe Azb has achieved tremendous successes against the terrorists and the miscreants.

The N leader on occasion acknowledged services of the lawyers for democracy and rule of law and assured the Forum of addressing their problems on priority basis.
