Lahore: Pakistan Muslim League senior central leader and Deputy Prime Minister Ch Parvez Elahi has said that the “Khadam-e-A’ala” should get a comparative survey done on development works undertaken in Punjab during our and his tenure.
Addressing a big and enthusiastic public meeting in Hockey Ground Vehari today, Ch Parvez Elahi said that during our period Rs 300 billion were utilized in the South Punjab whereas he has spent Rs 100 billion one a single road of Lahore, he is enemy of South Punjab and farmers, he has dropped developments of our tenure and withdrawn facilities given to the people particularly the farmers. We had served all segments of the society including poor, farmers, workers, students, lawyers, doctors, journalists and government servants and he has done nothing except indulging in politics of revenge.
Ch Parvez Elahi said that we would restart the process of development and progress in Punjab from where we had left, our five years compared with previous 55 years, people themselves would decide during which period more development had taken place. He maintained that we did politics of principles, did not humiliate anyone and not got false cases registered against anyone.
He said further that in view of deprivations of the people of South Punjab we practically launched the movement for making South Punjab a province,we established first dental hospital in South Punjab but Shahbaz Sharif has not yet let it become functional, Shahbaz Sharif hates South Punjab and farmers, “Khadam-e-A’ala ” during his three tenures has done nothing neither for people of South Punjab nor for the farmers adding that we had established Cardiology Hospital in Multan from which people of Vehari and other districts are benefitting.
Continuing, Ch Parvez Elahi said we had made provision of free medicines in all hospitals for the lawyers but the present govt has snatched this facility from the lawyers community, we created Prosecution Department, established Consumer Courts which provided relief to the people in ten thousand cases, launched 1122 Emergency Service, made education and books free up to Matric, gave stipends to the deserving students and provided free medicines in the hospitals. He said all these works were done by us in Punjab for the first time, Khadam-e-A’ala stopped petrol for patrolling police and added quite emphatically that our politics evolves around common man.
He said during our tenure, farmers were being given relief, Punjab Govt was paying 50 per cent of agricultural tubewells bills so that the farmers cultivate maximum area. He said because of wrong strategy and policies of Shahbaz Sharif Punjab has been rendered bankrupt, billions of rupees of the public money has been squandered away because of which the present govt has not been able to achieve its revenue target.
Ch Parvez Elahi said that Shahbaz Sharif is fond of having fake surveys published., he should get comparative survey of development works undertaken in Punjab during our regime and his tenure. He said that we had given 14 new projects to the people, present govt should name just one project of public welfare like those, education do not spread through distribution of lap tops and keeping 22 departments with himself, today people from different fields including doctors are on roads.
He said if the people want to get rid of N-League then the solution is that they should inflict heavy defeat on it during the next general elections which are going to be contested on the basis of performance. He said both the brothers know no other work than to raise hue and cry on media.
He said Pakistan Muslim League loves people of South Punjab and this is why our party’s top leadership as well as strong leadership of South Punjab in Tariq Bashir Cheema, Ahmad Yar Hiraj, Muhammad Basharat Raja, Ch Zaheeruddin Khan, Khusru Bakhtiar, Nasrullah Khan Dreshak, Qamar Hayat Kathia, Rajan Bakhsh Gilani,Khalid Waran and Ehsanul Haq are present here.
