Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said that the popularity of the PML-N is not only increasing in Punjab but throughout the country and its candidates will win with a majority in the general elections as the party has solved problems of the masses during the last four and a half years and introduced a number of projects for their welfare and betterment. Therefore, he has said, the PML-N today is more popular in the people as compared to its rival political parties.
Shahbaz was talking to the assembly members from various districts here on Sunday.
He said that it had been revealed in the recent Gallup survey that not only support of the PML-N but the popularity of its president Nawaz Sharif was also growing and they would vote for its candidates in the forthcoming election. He said the PML-N would form its governments all over the country and new records of public service would be set. He said that during the last four and a half years, a network of welfare oriented projects had been laid throughout the province.
The CM said that contrary to loot and corruption of the dictatorial era, a new culture of transparency and merit had been introduced in the execution of development schemes. He said the PML-N did not need a certificate from anyone as the confidence of the masses was enough for it. He said that due to inefficiency, corruption and nepotism of the federal government, people were still facing the worst loadshedding even after four and a half years and hundreds of thousands of people had been rendered jobless while national institutions were being destroyed through corruption.
The chief minister said that Ali Baba and 40 Thieves had made Pakistan which was rich in natural resources a beggar country while national sovereignty had also been put at stake by the incompetent rulers only for a few pennies. He said Zardari mafia had no concern with the problems of the people and the whole gang was engaged in loot and plunder. He said the people were not ready to tolerate corrupt rulers any longer and would hold Zardari gang accountable as criminal negligence had been shown to the solution to their problems.
The CM said the PML-N government did not believe in power only for the sake of power but considered it as a means of serving the masses. He said the PML-N government had taken hard decisions for the welfare of the people and even its critics could not point a finger to it as it had promoted transparency and merit in every sector. He said corruption and malpractices had been rooted out through promotion of good governance all over the province.
Shahbaz Sharif said that under a comprehensive strategy, revolutionary changes had been brought about in education, health, infrastructure and other sectors. He said the Punjab government was taking lead in the provision of the maximum facilities to the masses.
The chief minister said that the party workers who had rendered sacrifices during dictatorial era were a precious asset to the party and upholding of their respect and honour was his responsibility. He said that genuine problems of the workers would be resolved on a priority basis. He vowed that the country would be put on the road to progress and prosperity under the leadership of PML-N President Nawaz Sharif and a Pakistan would be built where there would be predominance of constitution, law and justice with equal opportunities of progress available to all citizens.
