Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar has said that neither anyone was given assurance nor Imran Khan will tender resignation. Those dreaming of abolition of the parliament and the government will continue to dream only. He said that minorities have complete protection but India has become slaughter house for its minority communities. We are formulating a policy for allocation of minorities’ quota in all public welfare projects including Ehsas Programme.
Through its effective economic policies, government has saved the country from bankruptcy and now the government is also taking tough decisions to strengthen the economy. He expressed these views while addressing the Pastor and Church Leaders Conference at Aiwan-e-Iqbal; 11th Interior Pakistan Exhibition at Expo Centre and later talking to media here on Saturday.
In his address at Pastor and Church Leaders Conference, Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that minorities had surely played an important role in the formation of Pakistan and at difficult times, Christian leaders have always supported Pakistan’s standpoint at international level, and as per vision of Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, he said, present government is ensuring provision of rights to minority communities.
And I am proud that I have always fought for minorities’ rights and my doors are opened for you. He said that despite happening of many unfortunate incidents including at Gojra and Joseph Colony, the minority communities are standing with Pakistan, and I assure you that we will take you along. Minorities including Christian community will have special quota in the public-welfare programme to be initiated by federal and provincial government.
At the 11th Interior Pakistan Exhibition organized by Pakistan Furniture Council (PFC), the Governor along with PFC Chief Executive Mian Kashif Ashfaq took a round of all the stalls at the exhibition. On this occasion, he said that Pakistani hand-made furniture is in great demand in the world and due its unique designs Pakistan furniture has the potential to get an ample place in the international markets.
