OKARA (Agencies) - Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said the problems of tenants of Okara Military Farms have been solved and 5,300 families have been given free plots, and they will also be assisted in construction of their houses. Shahbaz said Pakistan is not only for the elite, but is the country of 170 million people, and all its citizens have equal rights. He said that Pakistan was achieved after numerous sacrifices, but despite the lapse of 63 years it could not be transformed in accordance with the ideas of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and Poet of the East Allama Iqbal. He was addressing a big gathering on the occasion of distribution of proprietary rights of 10-marla plots among 5,300 tenants of Kalyana estate of village Gogera, District Okara, on Saturday. Paying tributes to the hardworking people of Gogera, the CM said that they produced wheat for 170 million people of the country in scorching heat and biting cold, but had no shelter for their living. The government is fully aware of their problems and will leave no stone unturned for redressal of the same, he added. He deplored that the former rulers wasted millions of rupees on advertisements for their personal projection in the name of 'Parha Likha Punjab, but did nothing for the rights and welfare of the masses. We have proved by providing ownership rights to 5,300 families of Sadar Gogera that Pakistan is not the country of only one class, he maintained. Shahbaz further said that the Punjab government had also provided resources for construction of houses of Gogera people, adding that the plots of 10-marla each had been given free of cost to 5,300 families of Kalyana estate. Earlier, the CM went to Military Dairy Farm Renala and Okara where Quarter Master General Lt-Gen Zahid Hussain and Maj-Gen M Ali welcomed him. They also gave detailed briefing about the breeding of livestock and modern lab of military dairy forms to the CM. Addressing the progressive breeders of Livestock Punjab and others there, Shahbaz said that we could not only increase our exports by using modern technology in livestock and dairy sectors but could also eliminate poverty and unemployment. We will have to serve the country by setting aside bitterness of the past for regaining the lost glory of the country, he remarked.
