Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Tuesday said that the people have buried the negative politics of the PDM. “The future of those who are issuing dates, again and again, is bleak.”
The SACM said that the opposition leaders are afraid of resigning from assemblies as they are fully aware of the fact that elections would be held on the vacant seats, she added. The SACM emphasised that even the boy-king, as well as the Jati Umra queen, will not put an axe on their own feet as the PDM has no political gimmick to befool the masses. This cabal is entrapped in a blind alley and has nothing to show for face-saving, she added. Those who left the people alone in the corona pandemic are now wandering about.
Meanwhile, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said the Punjab government is setting up a 100-MW Solar Power Project in Layyah at a total cost of $57 million which will add 200 million units of cheap electricity to the national grid. The government will purchase electricity at a cost of only 3.7 cents as compared to 14.1 cents by the former government. It is sanguine that confidence of foreign investors has been restored due to transparent and investor-friendly policies of the government.
SACM Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan was addressing the joint press conference flanked by Provincial Minister for Energy Dr Akhtar Malik after the signing ceremony of Land Lease Agreement for 100-MW Solar Power Project at EFU House, Jail Road here on Tuesday.
Talking to media, Dr Firdous said the government has entered into agreements with companies at the cheapest rates to supply electricity to industrial and domestic users. Unlike in the past, the PTI government was moving towards sustainable sources of cheap electricity and the Chief Minister Usman Buzdar was determined for composite development of the province, she added. She said the rights of people of South Punjab had been abused in the past but now it’s time for compensation and the PTI government would fulfill all the promises made to the people and would complete sustainable development in southern Punjab.
The Special Assistant said the previous government caused huge loss to the national exchequer by implementing expensive energy projects and burdened the nation. She said the PML-N government focused more on Lahore and the development was limited to Raiwind only. The PML-N government was only interested in such projects which gave them high kick-backs, she added. The Special Assistant said that the Punjab government strongly condemned the terrorist activity in Mach area of Balochistan in which 11 coal miners were killed and the vandalism at a KPK temple.
Responding to a question, Dr Firdous said that hopelessness and helplessness was prevailing in the camp of PDM. She said the Calibri Queen was making hue and cry in the desert of Bahawalpur but there was no one to rescue her. She alleged that Maulana Fazlur Rehman forced madrassa students to take part in Bahawalpur rally. PPP had betrayed PML-N whereas
