Former National Assembly speaker and PTI leader Asad Qaiser called on Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi and former federal minister Moonis Elahi at CM Office on Tuesday and discussed matters of interest, economic and political situation of the country.
They expressed deep concern over the deteriorating economic situation while the CM said that the PDM-led government neither managed the economy nor saved political credibility. The elements who raised the slogan of saving the state, instead of politics, have been badly exposed. The incompetent bunch of PDM has caused enormous economic damage to Pakistan in a few months, he regretted. The federal government has no credibility. Shehbaz Sharif did not care about the honor of the post of the prime minister of Pakistan. This is the first prime minister who is begging all over the world but no one is willing to give him alms, he added.
He said that PDM has put the honor of the country at stake. People are fed up with this incompetent cabal. He said that the federal government is also weakening interprovincial harmony under the covert policy of revenge. The Punjab government has strongly protested against the illegal tactics of the federal government; he stated and noted that the federal government has shown open hostility to the people by withholding funds for Punjab. The provincial government will raise its voice against the illegal actions of the federal government on every forum, he further said.
Asad Qaiser said that the economic indicators are completely negative. He appreciated the people-friendly measures of CM Parvez Elahi and said that the extension of Rescue 1122 to the tehsil level and the start of the motorcycle rescue service are exemplary achievements. Ch Parvez Elahi did many welfare works in the past and he is even more active than before, he concluded.
Separately, a meeting was held in the Chief Minister’s Office under the chair of Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi. The CM directed the upgradation of Sakhi Sarwar THQ hospital and added that the 1122 rescue center will be established in Fort Monroe. A trauma center equipped with modern medical facilities will also be built in Fort Monroe. He said that the government was working to provide health facilities in Dera Ghazi Khan and other remote areas. Meanwhile, the government also appreciates the cooperation of armed forces in education, health and other fields, he said. The services rendered by PAF in education and health are praiseworthy, he concluded.
Provincial Minister for Primary and Secondary Health Dr Akhtar Malik, secretary primary and secondary health, Air Commodore Shehryar Khan and others attended the meeting. A meeting was held at the Chief Minister’s Office under the chair of Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi to discuss the food court project adjacent to Lahore Zoo. The CM said that modern facilities will be provided in the double-storey food court including a dancing fountain and circular stairs for the visitors.
He said that safari visits will be organized in the wildlife park and boating safari on the lake will also be introduced. A safari train will take children for a walk in the wildlife park. A food court will also be established in the style of Lahore Zoo in the wildlife park, he concluded. Provincial Minister Ali Abbas Shah, Principal Secretary to CM Muhammad Khan Bhatti, secretary finance, secretary wildlife, commissioner Lahore, DG PHA and others attended the meeting.
