Maryam Safdar has no place in practical politics: Firdous

Staff Reporter

Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan predicted that Maryam Safdar has no place in practical politics as she has been defeated on many fronts.

“The whole world knows that Nawaz Sharif was ousted because of corruption and money-laundering and a patient who went to London for a medical checkup is now not ready to return to the country because he knows that he has lost his place in the politics and the nation has rejected his political drama.”

Talking to the media persons here, the SACM said that no one is above the law and those who looted public money will be answerable to NAB. She advised Maryam to stop dictating state institutions.

“Those who will violate the law will be held accountable”, she warned and added that the youth to play a constructive role in the development of the country rather than listening to Maryam’s nefarious narrative.

The SACM said that Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has directed to strictly implement the decisions taken by NCOC in its meeting due to the increasing number of corona cases in the province.

Dr Firdous said that NCOC in its meeting has shown concern on the rise of corona cases in Punjab and has also identified violation of SOPs in the province.

She said that smart strict lockdown will be ensured in areas where covid-19 has increased from 8 to 10 percent.

To ensure social distancing, the government is contemplating closing down bazaars, shrines and other recreational places, she said.

The SACM said that more than 7.4 million people will be vaccinated till December this year whereas 95,211 senior citizens above the age of 60 have been vaccinated to date. She said the CM has directed to ensure vaccination of the senior citizens at the district level.

In the upcoming weeks, people above the age of 55 will also be vaccinated and this process will be completed in December 2021, she further said.

Dr Firdous said the CM also directed to ensure the availability of Health Insurance Cards in Sahiwal and DG Khan Districts without any delay.

On the one hand, the government is facing the challenge of corona in the province, especially in the thickly populated districts whereas, on the other hand, Maryam Safdar is instigating the youth to attack the state institutions.

All this shows that Maryam Safdar wishes to go to the NAB office in a filmy style to stage a political drama, she said.

Dr Firdous said the CM has also decided to visit different districts of the province and initially he will visit Sheikhupura, Gujranwala and Hafizabad to resolve peoples’ problems at their doorstep.

She said that media should also play its role in creating awareness and strict implementation of corona SOPs. She said the people should take corona seriously and avoid social gatherings.

Dr Firdous deplored that a few families ravaged the country like vultures and destabilized the beautiful region.

She said that Prime Minister Imran Khan inherited the devastated economy in 2018 but despite all difficulties and the corona epidemic, the country is braving the odds to move towards heights of glory.

The SACM said the nation must support the government efforts for transforming Pakistan into a global economic hub in South Asia.

Democracy means public service and PM Imran Khan is burning the midnight oil to fulfill the dreams of the founding fathers because Pakistan is a beautiful legacy of Quaid-i-Azam and Allama Iqbal, concluded the SACM.
