Lahore: Provincial Minister for Law Rana Sanaullah has said that the as the people has still not forgotten loot and plunder and corruption of the era of Chaudhry Brothers but now the end time of those who have indulged in corruption in collaboration with Zardari gang is very near.
In response to a statement by Ch. Pervaiz Elahi, Rana Sanullah said that era of Pervaiz Elahi was full of corruption, nepotism and plunder during which dacoity worth billion of rupees was committed in Punjab Bank. He said during the era of Chaudhry Brothers, development projects had become graveyards of corruption and Lahore-Kasur Road, Thokar Niaz Baig overhead bridge and Lahore Ring Road are clear proof in this regard. Rana Sanaullah said that Punjab government under the dynamic leadership of Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif is pursuing a comprehensive and well coordinated programme of peoples’ welfare and in this connection, many development projects are being completed day and night. He said that Punjab government has put an end to corruption in development projects and has promoted culture of transparency and good governance. He said that during the era of Pervaiz Elahi merit was flouted and nepotism was promoted due to which we are still suffering today. He said that Punjab government has established predominance of merit as all inductions and recruitments in government departments, including education and police, are being made on merit alone.
Law Minister Rana Sanaullah further said that Ch. Pervaiz Elahi raised the slogan of “Parha Likha Punjab” but it was just a publicity campaign on which billions of rupees were lost. Had this amount been spent on the betterment of education sector in the real sense of the word, the situation would have been better and literacy rate increased in the province, the Minister added.
