Lahore: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that the so-called march, which had come with a foreign agenda to derail democracy, itself became derailed at the D-Chowk of Islamabad, by striking a “deal”. He said that “revolutionary of container” and “Zar Baba Forty Thieves” became allies, after making a deal and those who raised so-called slogans of saving the state could not even save their honor. He said the so-called march holders should inform the nation as to their which demand has been met? He said that the drama of five days, logically ended in five hours, without getting any demand accepted.
In a statement, Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said that the democratic forces had waged a long struggle against dictatorship, and no person, with the help of few thousand people, could derail democracy, through his non-serious agenda. He said the conscious people, by not participating in the long march, have proved that they want to see democratic system flourish, and would not support any extra constitutional step. He said that real change does not come through a container, but through the power of the vote of the people, for which holding fair, free and transparent elections is the only best way. He said that people have completely rejected those hatching conspiracy against democracy near elections through imported agenda. He said those who exchanged accusations against each other, became buddies, thus proving that long march was a fake march. He said the plan to derail democracy was miserably failed at the D-Chowk of Islamabad and, as expected, imported elements came back, after capitulating. The Chief Minister said that people are mentally prepared for general elections and would not accept change through undemocratic step, except through constitutional and lawful methodology.
Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said that the Punjab government of Pakistan Muslim League-N has laid the foundation of real change by promoting transparency, good governance and merit. He said new records of public service and welfare projects have been set by the Punjab government, which include introducing revolutionary programmes in education, health, transport, infrastructure, information technology, agriculture, industry and other sectors which have raised the living standard of the people of the province. He said that not a single penny of corruption, safarish, nepotism or coercion has been committed in our development programmes and no one can prove a corruption of even a single penny against him, because he considers himself answerable before the court of Allah Almighty and the people. The Chief Minister said general elections would be held in Pakistan very soon. He said we have served the people as an article of faith and added our best performance is before the people, who are the best judge.
He hoped the people will bring forth such leadership in general elections which will have the passion to serve the country and the nation. He said corrupt mafia has looted the national exchequer and placed the country in darkness and myriad problems. He said the people would reject the corrupt elements, through power of their votes, in general elections, as they had rejected those raising false slogans. He said if the people of Pakistan again elected us in forthcoming general elections, we would bring about revolutionary changes in all sectors of life, under the dynamic leadership of Muhammad Nawaz Sharif, besides bringing the country out of darkness and putting it into the era of bright light.
