LAHORE: Taking a hit at the opposition, Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Sunday said that public service cannot be done through mere slogans, and those who are raising slogans and lofty claims in this regard have no ambition to serve public.
Talking to representatives from various districts, Shehbaz Sharif said that public service and development of the country is the mission of the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and it has set new precedents in this regard.
He said that the government utilised the national resources in a best possible way and completed record development projects. He further said that no one can accuse the PML-N government of corruption in these projects.
He said those who wanted to obstruct development in the country have failed and now the people will hold them accountable.
“Our political opponents are confused due to speedy progress of the country and those who have ignored the people in their provinces are afraid to face them in the general elections,” added Shehbaz.
He said the opponents of the public progress have no right to represent the people and the voters will kick them out of the political arena in the 2018 general elections.
Accusing the former rulers of the country of being corrupt, he said they plundered national resources and pushed the people to darkness, adding that the demands of accountability from these leaders seem ridiculous as stories of their corruption are known to the public.
He said the PML-N government has transformed the graveyard of corruption into towers of development and created a new history in the country through record development and public welfare projects.
He said a large number of development projects have been completed in education, health, agriculture and other sectors during the last four and a half years.
