CM Punjab emphasizes opposition to stand by corruption free politics



LAHORE: While terming the opposition’s agitation against national interest and unjustified in the prevailing circumstances, Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar has emphasised that it’s improper to promote national interest by spreading political uncertainty in the country.

In a statement, the CM advised the opposition to stage a protest against the corruption of its leadership. The opposition tried to score points over corona and dengue and, now, it was trying to interrupt the development journey in the garb of negative politics. The opposition could not befool the people through propaganda, he continued. Opposition was making a fuss for the sake of grabbing power as it has no regard for the masses, the CM maintained.

The government has a full understanding of the problems of the people and steps were being taken to overcome the price-hike, he stated and repeated that the prices of essential items will be stabilized as a result of steps taken by the government. Meanwhile, the parliamentarians and government officials have been directed to keep an eye on the prices by visiting commercial areas. The government was working to serve the masses and the steps taken by it will yield positive results, concluded the CM.
