Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Sunday said that in the present circumstances attitude of the opposition is childish and inappropriate.

“Opposition would have to understand that people cannot be served by holding illogic processions and rallies”, the CM declared and added that people have no interest in their rallies.

Usman Buzdar went on to say that the opposition should keep this in mind that their wrong policies keep the country away from its real destination. He said that the basic problems of the people were intentionally ignored in the previous regimes.

The people were deprived of their basic needs and the former rulers continued to enjoy the status quo in the corridors of power. Those who are creating hurdles in the progress and development of Pakistan are not well-wishers of the country and the nation.

There is no room in new Pakistan for those who have an agenda to safeguard their personal interests, Usman Buzdar added. He said that the opposition has always misled the nation whereas the incumbent government has focused on resolving the basic problems of the people.

The PTI government believes in composite development of all areas and for the first time in the history of Punjab, the PTI government has taken the development to the backward areas. I am personally monitoring the ongoing development projects of backward areas, Usman Buzdar concluded.
