November 30, 2019

LAHORE:Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has said that Pakistan can neither afford any clash/conflict nor it will happen.

Undoubtedly, country’s development and stability is the priority of government and all the institutions. Entire nation is standing with Pakistan Army, said the governor while talking to Punjab Chief Secretary Maj (r) Azam Suleman at Governor House and talking to media at a function held in DHA area on Friday.

Addressing reporters, the governor said bureaucracy must ensure all steps for instant solution of people’s problems. Sarwar said that PTI had always honoured the courts and institutional stability was its top priority, adding that under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, we have ensured supremacy of law and the Constitution, and we will continue to do so in future as well. He said that entire nation salute Pakistan Army for rendering great sacrifices while defending the country and in the war against terrorism, and every child of Pakistan is with Pakistan Army.

To a question, Chaudhry Sarwar said that only the Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief Minister Usman Buzdar had the authority for making any administrative or political change in Punjab. All necessary measures will be put in order to resolve people’s problems as well as ensure progress and prosperity in the province. He assured that PTI will ensure implementation of the promises, which it had made with the people.

During his meeting, with Maj (r) Azam Suleman, the governor congratulated him on assuming charge as Punjab Chief Secretary, and said that the PTI government under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan had purged all the institutions of political interference. Public service and timely solution of their problems should be top priority of the bureaucracy, he said and observed that only the devoted, dutiful and sincere officers win hearts of the people.

Europe: Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar left for a highly important visit to Europe on Friday night.

According to a press release issued by the Governor House Lahore, the purpose of the visit was to garner support for extension of GSP Plus status granted to Pakistan for another term of three years and to highlight the blatant violations of human rights in Indian-Held Kashmir by Modi-led BJP government at international forum.

The governor said that Pakistan would leave no stone unturned to highlight Indian atrocities in Kashmir. He said that international community must be sensitised about humanitarian crisis in the valley.

Talking about the importance of extension in GSP Plus status for Pakistani goods in European markets, the governor said that Pakistan had earned $15 billion during the last five years due to preferential status. It has a significant contribution to the revival of Pakistan’s economy which is a source of serious concern for India. Indian lobby in Europe is desperately trying to thwart Pakistan’s GSP Plus status.

During his visit to Europe, the governor will meet all the members of the European Parliament especially members of the committee for International Trade and Director General of trade to secure assistance in extension of GSP Plus status for Pakistan till 2023.

Reportedly, the high power committee will decide whether to grant Pakistan extension in preferential status or otherwise. The extension in GSP Plus status will go a long way in stabilising Pakistan’s economy. Since the grant of GSP Plus status, Pakistan trade has extensively benefited from it.
