LAHORE- While strongly condemning the NATO attack on security forces, Punjab Chief Minister, Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif on Saturday said that it was hard to understand why the federal government was not giving befitting response to foreign aggression. Pakistan Army is brave and no one can doubt over its intention. he said while addressing a function of distribution of prizes among the position holder male and female students in the intermediate examinations of the entire country at Chief Ministers Secretariat, here on Saturday. Speaker Punjab Assembly Rana Muhammad Iqbal Khan, Provincial Ministers, Members National and Provincial Assemblies, Vice Chancellors, Principals, intellectuals, columnists and besides a large number of teachers, position holders from Sindh, Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtonkhawa, Gilgit Baltistan and Azad Kashmir also attended the function. Malala Yousafzai, a student of 8th Class from Swat, especially attended the function. He said federal government should have given a matching response to foreign aggression, but unfortunately this was not the case. He said that drone attacks, bloodshed, bomb blasts and violation of borders could not snatch countrys future. The CM attributed this bloodshed to wrong policies and worst lust of power of a former dictator. Our sacrifices will not go waste and we will make Pakistan a greater country, he observed. The CM said that the entire nation was grieved over this tragic incident and passing through the state of shock. He said that the aggression against a nuclear state, Pakistan, was the result of weakness of near past and the worst desire of a dictator for prolonging his rule. He said that those nations which do not depend upon the aid of 'aghyaar, live proudly and the drone and NATO attacks in Pakistan were the results of begging from 'aghyaar. He said that the Punjab had raised the head of the nation high by rejecting the aid of 'aghyaar. The chief minister said that revolutionary initiatives had been taken for equipping the future builders and shining stars of the nation with education which are unprecedented in the 64 years history of the country. He disclosed that Rs.30 crore had been given to the male and female students showing best results in various examinations so far, prizes of Rs.42 crore to the position holders in speech and essay writing competitions whereas 30 thousand scholarships were being given to the talented students through Punjab Educational Endowment Fund. Shahbaz further said that the function of distribution of prizes among talented students was being held in a sad environment when 25 army jawans had embraced martyrdom in the NATO attack. He said that on the one hand the entire nation is shocked over the NATO attack while on the other hand there is such a deep conspiracy of scandal of Memogate which tantamount to selling the interests of Pakistan and giving the capability of nuclear into the hands of 'Aghyaar but, Insha-Allah, this conspiracy will never succeed. He said that the leadership of Pakistan Muslim League-N has filed a petition in Supreme Court in this regard and it is hoped that the court will expose the nefarious elements involved in this conspiracy. He said that the Supreme Court had rejected the review petition regarding NRO and now the federal government will have to write a letter for bringing back lakhs of dollars to the country from Swiss Banks. He said that the national resources were looted mercilessly in the 64 years history of the country, loans worth billions and trillions of rupees were waived off on political grounds and today such persons are ruling the country having medals of corruption on their chest. He said that had the resources not been looted, the situation of the country would have been different and it would not have been plunged into darkness.
