Lahore

November 22, 2020

LAHORE : MPA Ch Ashraf Ali Ansari and Ch Muhammad Yunis Ansari called on Chief Minister Usman Buzdar in Chief Minister’s Office here on Saturday and expressed complete confidence in his dynamic leadership.

The ‘treacherous’ narrative of opposition was strongly condemned in the meeting. Usman Buzdar said respect for Pakistan’s institutions is a must for all. We stand with our national institutions and will remain standing beside them, he said and added institutions are being targeted under a preposterous agenda.

He said PDM is an alliance of rejected elements who are not faithful and loyal to the country. Their only agenda is to create chaos and unrest, the CM said and added that rulers of the former regime gave hollow slogans to people.

Those who filled their coffers by plundering and looting cannot hoodwink the people. Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf is the popular political force of the country and Prime Minister Imran Khan is a voice of 22 million Pakistanis. Due respect will be given to the members of Punjab Assembly. Gujranwala will emerge as a stronghold of PTI. New projects for improving the education and health facilities are being launched in Gujranwala. Problems of Gujranwala will be redressed on a priority, the CM said.

Ashraf Ansari and Yunis Ansari said that they have complete confidence in the leadership and policies of the chief minister and assured their full support to him.

Meanwhile, a ceremony was held at Aiwan-e-Iqbal in connection with Shan-e-Rehmat ul Aalmeen week for honouring the position-holder students in reciting Naat, debates and quiz competitions. Usman Buzdar gave away commendatory certificates and cash prizes among the position holder students. Student Amna Aslam declared the winner in reciting Naat competition. Similarly, the winner of the debate competition Muhammad Saad highlighted the blissful way of life and Seerat-ul-Nabi (PBUH). Master Shahzad Akhtar and students of the different schools recited the Qissa Burda Sharif. Usman Buzdar said that participating in Shan-e-Rehmat ul Aalmeen week is an honour for all of us.

Selfless and unconditional love with the Holy Prophet (PBUH) is our faith. Shan-e-Rehmat ul Aalmeen week is being celebrated throughout the province with great devotion and honour. The chief minister announced observing Shan-e-Rehmat ul Aalmeen week every year as well as setting up Rehmat ul Aalmeen Chair in every public university at divisional level.

He said the Rehmat ul Aalmeen Chair provides opportunities to the researchers to conduct research on the teachings and Seerat of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and highlighted the new aspects of his (PBUH) blissful way of life to the world. He said that Rs25 crore has been fixed for awarding the Rehmat-ul-Alameen scholarship to the girl students. Similarly, Rs25 crore has been allocated for providing educational assistance to the deserving girl students. He said that celebrations of Shan-e-Rehmat-ul-Alameen week was started with a walk besides holding All Pakistan Multilingual Mushaira in which famous poets of Urdu and other regional language recite Naat in the honour of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).

Recitation of Quran, Naat, quiz and debate competitions were arranged in different cities of the province where thousands of students of schools, college and university level participated.
