Posted on 11 months ago
LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has made an appeal to the people protesting over the worst load-shedding to beware of the black sheep as are trying to foil the protest movement of the public by introducing the element of violence and ransacking in the demonstrations against the federal government's corruption and loadshedding in Punjab.
He said the government has decided that such elements will be dealt with an iron hand as are causing loss of human lives and damage to property during protest demonstrations.
Talking to media, the Chief Minister said that no one can deny the people their right to raise voice against corruption, price hike and the torturous loadshedding which has resulted in the loss of their means of livelihood due to which they are unable even to feed their children or pay for the treatment of their ailing parents.
He said that people have no option except to come out on the streets in this sizzling heat to express their resentment against the cruel rulers. He said that by setting up tent office in the extremely hot weather at Minar-e-Pakistan, he has given message to the people that Khadim-e-Punjab cannot leave them alone in the worst loadshedding and the problems and hardships caused by this situation.
However, he said, no attempt to damage private or public property whether it belongs to federal or provincial government will be tolerated. Similarly, he said, any violent action against human lives will be dealt with sternly.
Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said that he has appealed to the people by visiting every nook and corner of the province to remain peaceful during protest demonstrations and he is again requesting them to refrain from violence and vandalism against the agonizing loadshedding.
