Deviation from objectives

Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif in an honest and down-to-earth analysis of our chronic problems has quite rightly stated that we have deviated from our objectives and priorities and corruption has become part of the society. According to media reports, the chief minister did this bitter talking when a delegation of students from Balochistan Residential College, Khuzdar called on him in Lahore the other day. He emphatically stated that there is dire need to overcome challenges of providing basic services to the people including healthcare and education, there has never been any dearth of resources but it is a bitter that we are lacking in commitment and passion.
The CM regretfully pointed out that resources have never been provided for the development of Balochistan and other provinces and this has been the attitude and behaviour of all governments. He said it is in reality a matter of great concern and calls for self-accountability that the textile exports of Bangladesh are more than total exports of Pakistan though cotton is not grown there. The CM distributed lap tops to the visiting students and also announced provision of a new bus along with construction of residences and a state-of-the-art laboratory in the college.
Inter-province exchange of students as well as teachers is very commendable and should be continued with greater frequency as this will greatly help in promoting much needed inter-provincial harmony and brotherhood.
