LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Monday described the four-and-a-half-year tenure of the PML-N as most transparent in the country’s history and said it reflected the records of public service, honesty and hard work.

He said they had set records of public service against those of lies and U-turns by defeated elements. “The leader of the sit-ins group has lost credibility by lying on every occasion. The one who worst performed in his province should realise the facts now,” said Shahbaz in an indirect reference to PTI Chairman Imran Khan. The so-called claimant of change remained busy in criticism for the sake of criticism and baseless allegations, he said, adding that the process of change could never be triggered through hollow sloganeering. The chief minister, who was talking to a delegation of the PML-N, said economy was ruined during the tenures of former rulers due to the energy crisis. During the last tenure of PPP, national resources were looted ruthlessly the rulers who were totally drenched in corruption, he said.

The defeated elements and the plunderers could not meet the PML-N’s records of public service and performance, said the chief minister.

He said the PML-N had completed public welfare projects through hard work and treated national resources as a sacred trust of the people.

The Punjab government, Shahbaz said, had taken revolutionary steps for improving healthcare, education and other sectors. “Each of our steps is aimed at bringing prosperity,” he added.

He said the elements creating hurdles in the way of national development would be countered. If an opportunity was given to serve the people again after the 2018 elections, the looted money of the nation would be retrieved, the chief minister by defeating the both the parties (PPP and PTI) with the people’s support.

Separately, Shahbaz expressed deep sense of sorrow over the death of Arshad Mehmood Warraich, paternal uncle of senior journalist, columnist and anchorperson Suhail Warraich.
