UK businessmen hail Shahbaz as PML-N president


March 1, 2018

LONDON: Nawaz Sharif’s decision to make Shahbaz Sharif President of Pakistan Muslim League-N (PML-N) has been welcomed by a group of British Pakistani businessmen, hailing it as a right step for the continuation of progress of Pakistan.

In a meeting here in Hounslow, the group of Pakistani businessmen led by Tarab Raja said that Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif is a ray of hope for the deprived and downtrodden people of Pakistan. The traders said that Nawaz Sharif’s decision is wise and much needed in current situation as Shahbaz Sharif will provide the necessary stability and leadership.

Around two dozen businessmen attended the meeting and said that they had invested in Punjab after seeing that Shahbaz Sharif was carrying out the kind of work, unheard of unseen anywhere else in Pakistan.

Head of the meeting Tarab Raja said that the Punjab chief minister has done extraordinary work and during his tenure has made the difference which the whole world acknowledges. Mayor of London and American ambassadors have paid glowing tributes to Shahbaz Sharif for his development work in Punjab and have called him a 21st century genuine leader, he said.

He said that after selection as President of PML-N, Mian Shahbaz Sharif will reinvigorate destiny of people of Pakistan. He said that Shahbaz Sharif is capable of applying the change he brought in Punjab to the whole of Pakistan.

Tarab Raja said that today PML-N was standing strong on the back of real work done by Shahbaz Sharif in Punjab. “He has made Punjab into a model province. Punjab looks different from other parts such as KP and Sindh where progress has been made only through slogans and social media. In Punjab, the infrastructure progress can be seen the moment people enter Punjab. Lahore has been turned into a showcase of progress and cultural transformation.”

He said PML-N looks set to emerge as the single largest party in Pakistan. He said that, if given chance, Shahbaz Sharif can bring Pakistan in the line of developed countries of the world.

Muhammad Tariq, a property tycoon of England, said that he invested in health sector in Punjab, impressed by the reforms undertaken during the last four years. “We are fully confident that our investment will grow for the betterment of commoners of the country and Shahbaz Sharif has given us that confidence,” he said.

Najam Qureshi, Shahzad Chaudhry and other participants of the meeting showed their concern upon the prevailing political situation in Pakistan. They said that Pakistan needs direction, control and management in all sectors and elements involved in detsabilising the system must be thwarted.

They said that Nawaz Sharif’s ouster on Iqama was the prime example of miscarriage of justice and a clear example of political revenge. As a result Pakistan has faced instability and international humiliation. They said its important that the good work being done by Nawaz Sharif is continued and only Shahbaz Sharif can do that because he has a vast experience of implementing development projects.

It was decided in the meeting that a delegation of young British Pakistani businessmen will leave for Pakistan soon to meet Shahbaz Sharif to hand over to him concrete proposals to CM for further development in the country.
