Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Wednesday said the PTI-led government has made historic legislation during the joint session of the parliament on Wednesday and denounced the undemocratic attitude adopted by the opposition with regard to public interest legislation.
He noted that the allies have fully supported the government over legislation. It is unbecoming that the opposition is trying to make its one and a half inch mosque on important issues and such politics does not suit them, he remarked.
It is depicting a picture of failure and disorder. Meanwhile, most of the opposition members are unhappy over the behaviour of their leadership, he concluded.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Usman Buzdar said the PDM leadership lacks foresight as this opportunist cabal has no interest in public welfare.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the CM said the PDM continues to bewail from the day first as it would face defeat at every front.
The CM advised the opposition parties to relax till 2023 as the politics of development and public welfare will prevail in the country. Every conspiracy hatched against the PTI mandate has been frustrated with public support and negative tactics employed by opposition to obstruct the development process would not be tolerated by the masses, he added.
The PTI and its allies were working day and night to bring prosperity and stability to the country while the opposition had faced defeat on every occasion, he maintained.
Though the opposition was expert in propaganda tactics, it cannot befool the masses as PM Imran Khan was a strong hope of 220 million people of Pakistan, concluded the CM.
Meanwhile, the chief minister said that the opposition has faced defeat in the joint session of the parliament and it should better shun its negative attitude now.
Usman Buzdar said the opposition designs had been frustrated and its undemocratic and unethical attitude was deplorable. Those making tall claims had fled away after their defeat as record legislation have been passed in the joint session of the parliament, he added and reiterated that PTI and its allies were on the same page under the leadership of PM Imran Khan.
The CM welcomed the passing of the electronic voting machine bill and hoped that this avant-garde step would ensure transparency in elections and no one would point a figure at the results.
Regrettably, the opposition does not want transparent elections and its opposition to the legislation was like pot calling the kettle black.
The EVM voting system would ensure transparency, authenticity and accuracy in the election process and it was the fundamental and democratic right of the people which PTI government had given them. He added that cent percent correct results would be achieved.
The PTI government has fulfilled its promise by giving the right of vote to expatriates which are the valuable asset of the country, the CM concluded.
Meanwhile, the CM expressed a deep sense of sorrow over the death of Lala Sheikh Rafiq Qamar, an elder brother of Federal Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed.
In a condolence message, the CM extended sympathies to the bereaved family and prayed to Almighty Allah to rest the departed soul in eternal peace.
