Elite will have to sacrifice: Shahbaz

Eyeing the country’s elite class in connection with the implementation of his no-aid-from-the US policy, Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has said the wealthy people who benefited from the foreign aid would now have to make sacrifices.
Speaking during separate meetings with Punjab Assembly members from various districts and PML-N party workers on Wednesday, Shahbaz said foreign aid would have to be given up in order to achieve genuine economic and political independence. “Therefore, the biggest province of Pakistan has decided to break the beggar’s bowl, which is the desire of every Pakistani,” he added.
He said no nation could prosper with foreign aid, and had Pakistan refused to rely on that, the situation would have been much different. Shahbaz said funds for education and health sectors would not be reduced as a result of our decision to shun foreign assistance and new resources would be generated.
