Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif heard complaints of the people in his camp office at Minar-e-Pakistan on Sunday and issued orders in certain cases for redress of grievances.
A woman from Changa Manga complained that her daughter had been abducted but the police did not investigate the case on merit.
The chief minister assured the woman that justice would be provided to her. He issued instructions to the authorities for transferring the investigation of the case and ordered that a report be submitted to him within a week.
Another woman from Shadbagh, along with her educated disabled daughter, met the CM and informed him that her husband had died and she had borne the expenses for education to her daughter by mortgaging her house. She said that she had no source of income, therefore, her daughter should be given job while financial assistance should also be provided to her for getting back her house.
At her request, Shahbaz ordered the authorities that job should be given to the woman’s daughter from the Bank of Punjab’s quota for the disabled while payment for recovering her mortgaged house should also be made.
Another woman, along with her young daughter, met Shahbaz Sharif and informed him that her husband was a mechanical engineer and he had taken her to Italy after marriage but then sent her back on the pretext of illness of her mother and also divorced her. She said her stepfather had refused to give her shelter. The woman appealed to the CM that arrangements be made for sending her and her young daughter to Italy. The CM directed that the woman should be sent to Italy and the expenses for this purpose should be paid.
Speaking on the occasion, the chief minister said that no society could progress without justice. He said that police should check the oppressors while help the aggrieved. He said the complainants visiting police stations should be treated with respect and honour. He said that if the police resolved the problems of the people at local level they would not have to take the trouble of coming to him.
Member National Assembly Pervaiz Malik was also present.
