Staff Reporter

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has said that in the wake of prevailing situation in Afghanistan, unity and solidarity are direly needed in the country and those who try to create chaos can’t be well-wishers of the country.

He was speaking during his meeting with Punjab Law Minister Raja Basharat who called on him here on Sunday and discussed political situation and other issues of mutual interest.

Chaudhry Sarwar said that the government has a clear policy from day one that the rule of law will prevail in the country, adding that political victimization is out of question.

“Under leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan, we are taking practical steps towards development and prosperity of the country, he added.

The Punjab governor said that for the first time in the history of the country, practical steps are being taken for institutional reforms. The country is moving in the right direction and the business index has also increased by 108%.

He said that political opponents have already threatened the government with protests more than a dozen times, but they haven’t been successful in toppling the PTI government.
The public stands by the government’s narrative.

Therefore, instead of launching any more protests against the government, the opposition parties should play their democratic role inside and outside the parliament and wait for the next general elections in 2023.

Then the people will take decision for the next government with the power of their votes, he maintained.

Chaudhry Sarwar strongly condemned the Indian atrocities in Indian occupied Kashmir and said that India has become the greatest enemy of peace and humanity. Even the strongest condemnation against India’s brutalities is less.

International human rights bodies should take stern notice of the Indian atrocities on Kashmir and resolve the Kashmir issue in accordance with the UN resolutions, he concluded.

Meanwhile, Chairman Board of Management (BoM) Punjab Institute of Neurosciences (PINS) Prof Dr Anjum Habib Vohra has termed the appointment of Dr Mohsin Zaheer as Professor of Neurology in the Institute as a very pleasant addition.

He said that Prof. Mohsin Zaheer is highly skilled in his field and his inclusion in “PINS” will further strengthen the team of neuro physicians and will further improve the treatment of patients with neuro illnesses in particular.

Speaking during a meeting here on Sunday, Prof. Anjum Habib Vohra said that young doctors have the opportunity to learn a lot in the light of the experience of their seniors and by following in their footsteps they may prove to be the best physician in the future.

Executive Director PINS Prof. Dr. Khalid Mahmood, Dr. Shahid Mukhtar and other senior doctors were also present on the occasion.

He further stated that the state-of-the-art “PINS” in the region is providing world class medical services to the patients but there is a need for doctors, nurses and paramedics to improve their professional skills which will make the name of the Institute brighter.
