LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said the PML-N government has put the country on road to progress and prosperity.

 “The PML-N has always promoted politics of values and service to people is its motto,” he said while talking to Federal Minister Abdul Qadir Baloch who called on him yesterday.

He said that no effort will be spared for the development and prosperity of the country.

Shehbaz said that it is unfortunate that some political elements are once again trying to hinder process of national development and prosperity.

“Uncalled-for criticism of public welfare projects is opposition to progress and prosperity.  However the people have rejected the opponents of welfare projects,” he said adding that the work on China Pakistan Economic Corridor is in full swing.

Separately, CM Shehbaz Sharif greeted Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister Bin Ali Yildirim, other leaders and people on botching coup bid.

“The Turkish people have foiled the bid to harm democracy that leads to progress.  They proved that Turkish people love their President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and are committed to democracy,” he said. 

Shehbaz said that Turkish people have practically proved their commitment to the concept of rule of people as well as the fact that Erdogan is a public leader.

He said the government and people of Pakistan are with the government and the people of Turkey and fully support democracy in Turkey.
