SIALKOT - Special Assistant to Punjab Chief Minister Mansha Ullah Butt has assured his full support for the early establishment of Journalists’ Colony in Sialkot. He endorsed this prolonged delayed demand of the Sialkot journalists and pledged to take up the matter of journalists’ colony with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif at earliest.

He stated this while talking to the newsmen at Sialkot Press Club here on Sunday after planting a sapling on the club’s premises. Sialkot Press Club Chairman Humayun Iqbal Malik was also present on the occasion.

It is to be noted that Punjab Chief Minister Ch Pervaiz Elahi had announced the establishment of a colony for journalists in Sialkot in 2006, but after his government, the PML-N government in Punjab allegedly put the project in cold storage “apparently” on political grounds. Mansha Ullah Butt said that PML-N was the populist political party having deep roots among the masses in the country and it would make all necessary decisions which would go in the larger interest of the nation. He said that the PML-N was the political party which was still standing on its principle-based political stance, besides, honouring all its commitments and promises.

He vowed to continue his mission to serve the people, raising the living standard of the people through ensuring early provision of all basic facilities at their doorsteps. The PML-N has been raising voice against the failed economic and political policies of the PPP-led govt, he added. He narrated that the incumbent rulers had miserably failed to provide relief to the perturbed people. He asked the rulers to come before the court of the masses for getting pardon for its political mistakes, otherwise, the people would oust them from power. He said that the country was passing through worst economic, energy and political crises and only the PML-N was a ray of hope for the perturbed people.
