Talking exclusively to SAMAA, Shahbaz Sharif said Punjab government worked day in and day out to extend relief to the flood-afflicted people in this critical juncture.
He also rubbished the report regarding Met Department’s claim that the government was informed in advance about potentially massive flooding this time round.
The Chief Minister furthermore said the flood was sudden, that left millions of people homeless.
Lashing out at the Islamabad sit-ins, the chief minister asserted the sit-in and the protest sullied the name of Pakistan across the world and that the twin sit-ins have left the national economy threadbare.
On this occasion, he announced the relief cash amount will be doled out to the flood-displaced people before Eidul Adha.
“I will celebrate Eidul Adha with the flood-affected people,” pledged Shahbaz Sharif and criticized the PTI for having fiddled away millions of rupee on Karachi rally.
Vowing to welcome Imran Khan in flood-ravaged areas, CM Sharif remarked the nation will never forgive Khan, adding the nation is well aware as to who is a fake leader.
He also said the protesting people at the Islamabad sit-ins should be left on their own.
Referring to a meeting between Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri and Imran Khan, the CM Sharif underlined that London plan is now in full limelight and it was a conspiracy menat to postpone the Pakistan visit by Chinese president.
An obnoxious script was readied in London, he pointed out adding Punjab Governor Chaudhry Muhammed Sarwar did not meet Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri in London.
It is pertinent to note here that the government and its allies are peddling the idea of ‘London Plan’ alleging that the recent protest movement has been engineered abroad.
Contrarily, Dr. Qadri maintained in his televised interview that his London meeting with Khan was not a preplanned event as no telephone conversation took place neither were any messages exchanged between the both prior to the much-discussed meeting.
Shahbaz Sharif also was of the view that Chaudhry brothers, i.e. Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Chaudhry Pervez Elahi, looted Punjab Bank, adding they and their aides got their bank loans written off.
The Chinese investors, he added, were all poised to set up power generating units, wondering as to who will be held responsible for the delay in power projects in the country. China signed agreements worth Rs.20 in India, he informed.
“I myself am opposed to the VIP culture,” he said responding to a question regarding the recent SAMAA campaign ‘Bas Karo’ against the VIP culture.
