Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi met with a senior politician Nazir Ahmad Jutt at CMO.
While speaking on the occasion, he said that the present time warrants that we think above politics, and added that real politics at present is to serve the grief-stricken humanity, “which we are doing under the leadership of Imran Khan”. He said that his government has increased the number of special medical camps in the flood-affected areas in order to prevent infectious diseases. He apprised that necessary medical facilities and preventive medicines from infectious diseases are available in surplus quantity in the flood-affected areas.
The CM said that on his direction Chief Secretary Kamran Afzal is once again present in the affected areas while the provincial ministers are also overseeing the relief activities. He stated that he is himself overseeing the steps being taken for the rehabilitation of the flood victims. The CM lamented that unfortunately on the other hand the PDM parties are doing politics even in the given conditions. He said that the apathetic attitude of the opponents indicates that they do not care about the difficulties and calamities of their brothers and sisters.
Elahi said that these people have always displayed irresponsible behaviour on every important occasion, including flood and that their politics is not based on any principle or ideology. He emphasised that to come forward to help the flood victims is no less than worship and added that “it is our collective responsibility to help our calamity-stricken brothers and sisters”. The CM highlighted that the Punjab government is providing all possible resources to help the flood victims. He stated that the present time requires forgetting mutual differences and instead lending a helping hand to the distressed people.
