CM Buzdar criticises opp for ‘dividing’ nation
LAHORE – Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that the country is passing through a sensitive phase of its history as the enemies are trying to destabilise it.
In a statement, the CM has stressed that every Pakistani should prefer national interest to anything else as personal interest is valueless before it. “The oppo-sition is non-serious, even in the prevailing circum-stances, and its leaders should give preference to the national interest,” he said. “The country demands unity and cohesion because Pakistan is our only identity. Regrettably, the opposition parties are colluding to divide the nation but the people have fully recognised their dual faces,” he added.
Meanwhile, the CM during a meeting with lawmak-ers at CM’s house said that the government had fulfilled every promise it made with the public. “After Multan, the foundation stone for the building of South Punjab secretariat will also be laid in Baha-walpur soon.”
The CM said: “A development package has been de-vised for Bahawalpur, and I will visit it shortly.” He regretted that the past rulers had befooled the people of South Punjab with hollow slogans. “The resources meant for the development of South Punjab were spent on other districts,” he lamented, vowing that no one would now be able to steal the resources of South Punjab in future.
The CM maintained the government was committed to public service, adding that governance model had been transformed for better service delivery. “I do not believe in the dogma of one-man show, and decisions are made with consultations,” he stressed.
“The defeated elements are engrossed in hatching conspiracies, from the day first, but their every design has been frustrated,” maintained Usman Buz-dar. “Those involved in the politics of allegations have no future and the propagandists should also understand that people cannot be served with false claims,” he asserted. “The era of real change has be-gun and development schemes are designed accord-ing to public needs and parliamentarians are also consulted,” concluded the CM.
Lawmakers including MNAs-Rana Qasim Noon, Mian Shafique Arain, Tahir Iqbal, Farooq-e-Azam, Abdul Ghafoor Watto and MPA Samiullah Chaudhry had called on Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office.
