Posted on 10 months ago
LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has said that Zardari gang has committed an act of extreme injustice and highhandedness against the people of Punjab, in the form of worst loadshedding while the nation cannot get rid of power outages, corruption and loot and plunder without chasing away Ali Baba and Forty Thieves.
He said that the former Prime Minister had announced uniform loadshedding but it was not implemented, whereas step-motherly treatment is being meted out to Punjab. Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif said that he would continue to raise his voice against injustice being committed against people of Punjab, while his tent office would continue to operate till injustice, cruelty and highhandedness of Zardari gang is ended. He said that with the establishment of his tent office, his liaison with the public has increased a great deal, which has also provided him an opportunity to become fully aware of the problems being faced by the masses.
The Chief Minister expressed these views at his Tent Office today, while addressing residents, office-bearers and workers of Pakistan Muslim League-N, belonging to Sabzazar, Dobanpura, Awan Town, Jhugian Nagra, Dholanwal and other adjoining areas.

Shahbaz, concerned secretaries, IG Punjab, DCO Lahore, DG LDA and other concerned authorities were also present.
The Chief Minister said that if we all perform our duties with hard work, dedication and honesty, half of the problems of the country can be resolved but, unfortunately, the doors of the police and administration remain firmly shut for the poor masses, and their grievances are not heeded. He said that officers should realize their responsibilities and show no laxity in performance of their duties.
He stressed that he demands efficiency and results, and officers who just believe in verbal performance ought to correct their course. He emphasized that police and administration ought to work like true servants of the masses to resolve their problems on priority basis.
