Lahore:Pakistan Muslim League President Senator Ch Shujat Hussain has said that our members were protesting against maligning of the Federal Govt by the Punjab Govt in the name of electricity load shedding and injustice in distribution of development funds.
In a statement issued here today, Ch Shujat Hussain said that members in the meeting yesterday had highlighted these things that the favourite officers of Shahbaz Sharif are the source of electricity load shedding and they intentionally shut down power supply at the time of Sehr and Iftar so that the people criticize and curse the Federal Govt. He said this is the similar game which in the last election was played by the caretaker govt and had created fake atta crisis. He said that WAPDA officers are pursuing the policy of Shahbaz Sharif adding that entire responsibility for energy crisis lies on Shahbaz Sharif who has adopted the same attitude which was followed by the last caretaker regime.
Continuing, Ch Shujat Hussain said that Punjab Govt is hell bent upon defaming the Federal Govt day in and day out and instructions have been issued to the favourite officers that they should not let any opportunity to defame the Federal Govt. go wasted.
The PML President said that Federal Petroleum Minister Dr Asim Hussain after hearing the complaints from our members had to issue orders of transfer of some officers. The Federal Petroleum Minister had issued instructions to the officials of the Federal Govt that they should not be in contact or be associated with any political party otherwise stern action would be taken against them as the officers of the Federal Govt are meant for serving the people and not for working for any political party as its worker.
Ch Shujat Hussain said in the meeting the members had protested against shortage of Sui Gas development funds and injustice in distribution of these funds. He said that the members’ stance was very clear that they are members of an ally party and as such their works should be given priority.
He further said that N-League members are getting Sui Gas supply connection inauguration through police. He said as a matter of fact N-League members of the National Assembly criticize the Federal Govt and meet the Prime Minister in the darkness of the night and receive the funds. He concluded by saying that if details in this respect are made public then they would be hiding their faces.
