Continuing, Ch Parvez Elahi said that this is why during our tenure as the Chief Minister in Punjab, we had brought 20 lakhs children into the schools as a result of which literacy rate in the province went up whereas we also give the gift of the Gujrat University to the country, during our tenure ten thousand new employment opportunities were created every year, but today educated youth is unemployed, law and order situation has gravely deteriorated, if you want that Pakistan should make progress then make sure that Pakistan Muslim League emerges victorious adding ” I promise to you we will restart wheel of progress and development from where it was stopped”.
