Lahore
PML-N central leader and Member National Assembly Hamza Shahbaz Sharif has termed the ongoing confrontation of the federal government with the superior judiciary a shameful act which is tantamount to subverting the constitution.
Talking to the media at the Chief Ministerís Secretariat here Saturday, he claimed that President Asif Ali Zardari was wearing suicidal jacket which would destroy democracy if not timely defused. It was inevitable right now to defuse the jacket, he added.
He claimed that PPP’s Sind card had disappeared with the floods. He was of the view that the people had witnessed the role of PPP leadership during floods. He said the provincial government had diverted all of its resources, and PNL-N had exhausted its entire energies, towards helping the flood affected people.
He claimed that Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif had written letters to Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani urging him to reduce prices of sugar and petrol but to no avail.
He criticised the former chief minister and his son for their involvement in corruption worth billions of rupees and claimed that their corruption was still on record while he and his family had clean hands.
He said the provincial government was initiating reformatory process for the welfare of masses and media should help them in this regard. He claimed that PML-N would have to take vital decisions right now as people did not like their coalition with the PPP in Punjab. He termed it a great failure of the government to overcome energy crises, adding that it was impossible to resolve the countryís problems without resolving the issue. He claimed that the bureaucracy in Punjab was creating hurdles in governmentís way due to its traditional stubbornness, having negative impact on their governance. Hamza Shahbaz admitted delay in the party organisation and claimed that they had competent team to affectively look after the party affairs. He expressed hope that they would complete

the process of party organisation at the provincial level without delay, saying that the massive problems facing the country were responsible for its inordinate delay.
