Lahore:Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that we will force the corrupt rulers with the power of the people to stop load-shedding as no one could stay before the power of the people so far and nor will stay now.
He was addressing a big public gathering while leading the protest procession against load-shedding in Kasur today. Leader of the Opposition in National Assembly Ch. Nisar Ali Khan also attended the public rally against load-shedding.
Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that people from Khyber to Karachi have lost their patience and they are not ready to tolerate corrupt and inefficient government even for a moment. He said that load-shedding has caused a loss of five hundred billion rupees to Punjab, lakhs of people have become jobless, our fields are becoming barren and chimneys have stopped emitting smoke and we will hold the rulers accountable of the injustices being committed to Punjab. He urged the people to make preparation of a final round for ridding Pakistan of Ali Baba 40 Thieves.
The Chief Minister said that modern air-conditioned buses, laptops scheme, Aashiyana housing project and other public welfare projects pinch to our opponents, that is why, federal government wants to snatch these facilities from the poor by creating confusion about these welfare projects so that no one could benefit from it. He said that the people are being made jobless through unscheduled and worst load-shedding by especially targeting Punjab province. He said that our struggle is against the corrupt gang sucking the blood of the people and we will eliminate this gang of looters and plunderers. He said that all looted money of the people will be recovered from the gang of Ali Baba 40 Thieves at all costs.
Shahbaz Sharif said that the development works being carried out in Kasur are the clear proof of our commitment with the people. He said that Kasur-Lahore road was closed for the last five years and we have converted this tomb of corruption into minaret of development. That is why, the people of Kasur elected our candidate Malik Rasheed in bye-elections and they will also support Nawaz Sharif in next general elections, he added. He said that Kasur has been made a beautiful model city by completing all development projects based on public welfare in it whereas after the completion of Kasur-Lahore road, the traveling distance between the two cities has reduced from one hour to only 20 minutes. He said that all hindrances being faced by the farmers with regard to selling of wheat will be removed and it will be ensured that no farmer should face any inconvenience in this regard.
