Lahore : Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that country is making rapid progress and prosperity under the leadership of Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif. He said that national economy was ruined due to load-shedding continuing from last 16 years. He said that Punjab government has ensured timely, transparent and quality completion of development projects and opponents cannot prove corruption of even a single penny in development projects. No project was completed timely in the past, he added.
He expressed these views while talking to a delegation of Pakistan Muslim League-N, which called on him, today. The Chief Minister said that on the one hand, the country has been put on the road to progress and prosperity while on the other hand, a conspiracy is being hatched against Pakistan by threatening lockdown of Islamabad.
He said that those threatening to lockdown Islamabad are committing open enmity to Pakistan. He said that these defeatist elements are implementing the agenda of creating hurdles in the way of development and prosperity of the people of Pakistan. Threatening to lockdown of Islamabad is a conspiracy to close the doors of uplift of Pakistan, he added.
He said that undemocratic tactics of these defeated political elements have exposed to the nation. Contrary to its name, Tehrik-e-Insaaf has become non-justice party and this party has refused to accept the decisions taken at every forum of justice, he added.
He said that conscious people of Pakistan have rejected these defeatist elements at every level. He said that huge loss was caused to national economy as a result of politics of sit-ins and protest in 2014 and today, CPEC projects are being opposed at external and eternal level. Had these sit-ins not been staged a number of projects have so far been completed, he added.
Stopping the way of development through the politics of sit-ins and protest is a great crime and a cruelty to 20 crore people of Pakistan. He said that people will hold accountable those involved in stoppage of development process. He said that CPEC is a game changer for Pakistan and its opposition is opposition to the development of the country in the real sense. Conscious people of Pakistan will never allow anyone to stop the way of development, he added.
