LAHORE - Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that Pakistan was achieved 64 years ago by rendering enormous sacrifices under the leadership of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah and today “Zardaris and Madariz” have looted the same Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam and are sucking its blood.

Addressing a gathering at the inaugural function of Lahore Ring Road Packege-15, to be called “Nawaz Sharif Interchange”, the Chief Minister said if accountability of those who bargained Pakistan was not held “then we will not be able to give a plausible explanation in the court of the people and Almighty Allah”. “On the one hand, the country has been brought at the verge of disaster through plundering of national resources and, on the other, a drama is also being staged by bringing new faces before the people through makeup of Musharraf companions, who are making tall claims to bring revolution and develop the country,” he said, in an implicit reference to Musharraf’s cronies now joining the PTI.

Member National Assembly Khawaja Saad Rafique, MNAs, MPAs, office bearers of Muslim League and a large number of people were present on the occasion. Shahbaz Sharif said that today Lahore Ring Road Packege-15 was being inaugurated and people were fully aware that two years ago there were deserts and fields at this place. “Today another project of international standard has been completed,” he remarked.

The CM alleged that property business was carried out in the name of Lahore Ring Road during previous governments and dacoity of billion of rupees was committed. He said that present government was completing the development projects through transparent manner under the leadership of Nawaz Sharif by considering the resources of the nation, a trust.

 He said that after package-15, funds had been released for the project of sewerage and construction of Badian Road and these projects will also be completed according to the desire of the people by working round the clock. He said that on the one side country was being looted while on the other side Musharraf’s companions were being presented before the nation as Masiha through makeup but people fully recognize these faces.

He said that he might not be called Shahbaz Sharif if he did not expose these faces before the nation. These are the same people who supported Musharraf in the heinous crime of Lal Masjid, image of the judiciary was tarnished and Chief Justice was dragged. All such people were enjoying power with Musharraf.

He said that despite telephones of President Clinton and offer of aid of five billion dollars, the defence of country was made invincible by carrying out six nuclear tests in response to five nuclear tests by India. He said that PML-N government refused foreign aid soaked with the blood of Pakistanis and such charity could not be accepted at any cost. He said that Pakistani nation was a living nation, and PML-N will face them courageously and transform the country as envisioned by Quaid-e-Azam and Iqbal in real sense, he added.

Khawaja Saad Rafique said that leadership of the PML-N as per its tradition had given the gift of Ring Road to Lahorites which was earlier only in imaginations and papers. Similarly a huge amount had been allocated for the construction and repair of Badian Road. Funds had also been allocated for the project of sewerage from MP check post to Bhatta Chowk and from Bhatta Chowk to Nawaz Sharif Interchange. He said that the longstanding demand of the people of this area will be resolved through completion of the project of sewerage at a cost of Rs.12 crore. He said that Shahbaz Sharif was a kind-hearted person and his heart beats with the destitute and he is also perturbed over the deteriorating situation of the country. He said that now again the sweet dream of revolution was being presented by changing the faces of Musharraf companions.
