Punjab Governor Chaudhry Sarwar has said that the resignations of the opposition will be the real resignations only when they are handed over to the Speaker of the Assembly.
“The opposition is trying in vain to fool the people. They themselves know that their protests and resignations will not end the government.”
The Governor said that people involved in crimes like throwing acid on women are also terrorists and such people do not deserve any forgiveness. He said that the empowerment of women is necessary for making Pakistan strong. Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar was addressing an event in connection with the violence on women and other issues organized by Women Protection Authority Punjab at a local hotel on Wednesday.
Governor Ch Sarwar said that the government is not intimidated by the threat of resignation of the opposition. If the opposition is serious then why these people do not submit their resignations to the Speaker. They are making such moves to destabilize the government and create chaos in the country. But it is the clear policy of the government that we should not engage in confrontational politics. We also suggest the opposition to avoid politics of chaos and let the country move forward in progress and development.
Ch Sarwar said that the government will not put any obstacle in the rallies of the opposition on December 13, but when someone tries to take the law into their own hands, the law will definitely come into action and action will be taken against those responsible. There will be no compromise on the supremacy of law and order, he added.
Addressing the event, the governor said that the PTI government has been taking steps for the development and prosperity of women from day one and women are being given due representation in every initiative including the Ehsaas Program. He said that the government would ensure full implementation of all laws for the elimination of all crimes including sexual violence against women and the perpetrators of violence against women could not be forgiven under any circumstances. Fatima Chadhar deserves congratulations on the chair. Chairperson Fatima Chadhar deserves appreciation on the exemplary performance of Women Protection Authority, he added.
