RAWALPINDI Chief Minister (CM) Punjab, Mian Shahbaz Sharif said that the citizens of Rawalpindi, once again, rejected Awami Muslim League (AML) President Sheikh Rashid, who actually was the candidate of PPP Co-Chairman and President Asif Ali Zardari while PML-Q Chief Chaudhry Shujaat financed him and former dictator Pervez Musharraf prayed for his success. I am very thankful to people of Rawalpindi, who with the grace of God, once again, honoured PML (N) by supporting Malik Shakil Awan against unpatriotic Sheikh Rashid Ahmed he added. The CM Punjab Shahbaz Sharif, who was flanked by Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly, Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan, said this while addressing a public gathering outside the PML-N newly elected MNA from NA-55, Malik Shakil Awans central office at Liaquat Road here on Thursday. Besides scores of PML (N) workers and members of the partys women wing, newly elected MNA, Malik Shakil Awan, MPAs Shehryar Riaz and Ch Muhammad Ayaz, former MPA Sardar Nasim, Ilyas Subhani and other leadership was also present on the occasion. The charged workers while holding party flags and portraits of their leaders, chanted slogans in favour of PML-N Quaid Mian Nawaz Sharif, CM Shahbaz Sharif and Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and against AML President, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed. Regretting over Sheikh Rashid Ahmeds disloyalty, Shahbaz Sharif said that he (Sheikh) had won two seats in the name of Mian Nawaz Sharif by cheating people of Rawalpindi in 2002 elections but later joined hands with the dictator, who illegally dethroned PML-N government. Sheikh Rashid, in fact, did not cheat Nawaz Sharif but himself and the citizens of Rawalpindi. The by-polls have proved that they do not like con artist CM Punjab mentioned. He said Malik Shakil Awan is a worker of the PML-N and will facilitate the people. He said that he being 'Khadim-e-Ahla would also serve masses by all means. He said that he would gift a 150-bed Gynae Hospital to people of Rawalpindi where mother and child would be provided adequate health facilities free of cost. The hospital would be built inside Rawalpindi General Hospital (RGH) and work on it, would be kicked off in this June CM Shahbaz Sharif announced.
