GUJRAT Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif Tuesday said the PML-N had never supported the drone attacks in Pakistans tribal belt nor it would second them in future, adding that former president Pervez Musharraf was responsible for the loss of innocent lives in these strikes. He was talking to newsmen in Gujrat after the inaugural ceremony of a parking facility, which has been constructed a cost of Rs100 million. The chief minister said the Rs125 per kg price of sugar was a result of the federal govern-ments negligence but the provincial government would ensure its sale at Rs72 in the open market. The issuance of more than 13,000 fake firearms licences in Gujrat district is a sign of great danger.

Talking about recruitment in police, he said, I have also learnt that more than 600 persons, with criminal record, were recruited in Gujrat Police in the past, for which an inquiry has already been ordered.
