Punjab Governor, Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar, has said that differences in PDM will be beneficial for the government.

Asif Zardari is an intelligent politician, he understands that in case of resignations from the assemblies, the Sindh government will also end.

“I have been saying for months that all 11 parties in PDM have their own narratives and ideologies that are conflicting as well.’

He was talking to media after inaugurating the first project of restoration of filtration plants under Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority at Mahmoodpura Lahore on Tuesday.

Chairman Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority Dr Shakeel, PTI member Jamshed Cheema and Political Secretary to Governor Punjab Mian Kashif Iqbal and others were also present.

Talking to media, Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that the opposition parties are only safeguarding personal and political interests and they have no concern for the nation and as far as differences in PDM are concerned, it is definitely beneficial for the government.

This also proves that there is no unity and consensus among the PDM parties on any issue. If it were not for the PPP government in Sindh, Asif Zardari would have had the same views on the issue of resignations from the assemblies as other PDM parties.

Replying to a question, Governor Punjab said that the opposition should accept the mandate of the government and let PTI complete its five years’ government.

If we fail to deliver to the people, the people will not vote for us in the next elections.

Therefore, the opposition should wait for the next general election adding that the opposition’s plans will fail and the government will complete the constitutional term.

He said that Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority has become fully operational and so far we have started projects worth over Rs. 4 billion while more than 146 filtration plants are being set up in Lahore, Sheikhupura, Kasur and Nankana Sahib.

More than 500,000 people will be provided clean drinking water on a daily basis through these projects, he added.
