LAHORE: Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif stated that people who give lectures against corruption today are the ones who looted Pakistan in the past and are remembered by the masses for their exploitation only.
He expressed these views while talking to members of Punjab Assembly who called on him for an informal meeting. The chief minister lamented that the past rulers ruthlessly pillaged the national resources and stated that the current government has spent every penny on public welfare.
Criticising the parties which focus more on the politics of protests, the chief minister stated that these elements have no concern with the national development. He warned these parties that people cannot be fooled as the nation cannot tolerate the negative politics of allegations and deceit.
He further added that transparency has been ensured in development projects by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and stated that billions of rupees of the nation have been saved through transparency, speed and quality of work.
Those who called on the chief minister included Provincial Minister Mehr Ijaz Ahmed Achlana, Rana Muhammad Tajamal Hussain, Malik Ali Abbas Khokhar and Malik Ahmed Karim Langhrial.
