Hamza Shahbaz Sharif said that Pakistan cannot stand at its own feet without eliminating corruption from politics. He said that corruption is rampant in the country and steel mills, PIA and other institutions have been ruined. He said that those rulers who beg from Aaghiyar cannot take decisions independently. He said that Punjab government has set up a worth emulating example of national dignity by renouncing aid of Aaghiyar. He said that despite this bold decision, Chief Minister Punjab Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has completed a number of development projects in Punjab and the metro bus project which is going to be completed at the end of this month in Lahore is a clear proof of it. He said that PML-N is determined to make Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam a prosperous and developed country without begging from Aaghiyar.
Hamza Shahbaz said that Punjab government by taking a number of steps for the destitute including setting up of Endowment Fund with an amount of Rs. 10 billion, soft loan upto Rs. 50 thousand, provision of 75 thousand acre land to agriculture graduates, sending position holder students on foreign tour without any discrimination and cash prizes has proved that if the rulers are sincere, real change can be brought. Hamza Shahbaz Sharif said that Punjab government of PML-N has become a role model for the entire country. He said that Punjab government utilized its resources for the people of other provinces facing natural calamities including floods, earth quacks which are a glorious example of brotherhood, unity and solidarity and the role of Punjab as an elder brother.
