Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif said that opponents of public welfare projects are tantamount of opposing country’s development and prosperity as Elites don’t want the fate of poor’s to be changed for better. Likewise, remaining indifferent from the needs of under-privileged children they only want best education facilities for their own children so they could excel well in their career ending up as Doctors, Engineers, Lawyers Judges and Generals whereas talent of children of poor’s to be wasted in the dust of streets. It won’t happen now in Pakistan of Quaid-e-Azam and Iqbal as I have vowed to deliver best higher education facilities to every children of the province and will give all-out resources in this regard.
Those criticizing and hurdling Public Welfare projects include Niazi Sahib at one hand who has blamed me that I offered him 10 Billion at Dubai and at other side its Zardari Sahib who has pushed the country towards Energy Crises and now he claims that CPEC project is at his credit but we just want to ask one thing that if Chinese Government was trusting Zardari Sahib that much why a shrewd person like him forget to lay the foundation stone of Gwadar port at that time.
Infact, PM Nawaz Sharif visit to China by 09 July 2013 was the initiating point for CPEC and today whole Pakistan is cherishing it as numerous development projects has been installed under it till now. PM will inaugurate 1320MW Coal Power Project in Sahiwal next month. He said that Niazi Sahib has blamed me that I offered him 10 billion through a friend which is a total lie and he is setting records of impeachment and negative politics.
He said that he will look for legitimate guide against this habitual pettiness of Niazi Sahib.
