Lahore:Hamza Shahbaz Sharif has said that the entire Punjab is protesting against the unjust and unscheduled loadshedding. He said that the Lahorities will strongly protest on June 14 at Nila Gumband against the injustice being committed by the federal government to the people of Punjab through artificial loadshedding in Punjab for which party workers have started preparations.
These views were expressed by him while presiding over a meeting of office-bearers and workers of Lahore City. President PML-N Lahore, Pervaiz Malik, General Secretary Khawaja Imran Nazir and other senior leaders attended the meeting. Hamza Shahbaz Sharif said that Punjab pays more electricity bills than other provinces which is 70% of the total payment. He said that in spite of that federal government is bent upon halting the wheel of economy by committing injustice with Punjab. He said that due to these injustices of the federal government, unemployment and price-hike has increased in Punjab which have made the lives of the people miserable. He said that the situation has so much worsened that besides labourers and common man, factory owners have also come to streets.
Hamza Shahbaz Sharif further said that President and Prime Minister have plundered the national exchequer and scandals of their corruption are coming face almost daily. He said that the rulers have imposed fuel adjustment charges like a “jagga tax” instead of providing electricity to the masses. He said that the protest by the Lahorites on June 14 at Nila Gumbad against the federal rulers will continue till the people of Punjab get rid of injustices of rulers.
