Those involved in attacks on institutions will be taken to task: Hamza


Says bringing ease in lives of people our target

Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Hamza Shahbaz has stated that those involved in scurrilous attacks against the state institution will be taken to task as no one should take the liberty to say anything offensive about the institutions according to his own desire and will. A defeated person is ridiculing the state institutions, constitution and the security of the country.

While talking to the media at the residence of PML-N MPA Mian Naveed in Pakpattan on Monday, he argued that the steps and statements of PTI chief Imran Niazi are against the security of the country. Even the friendly countries have become a victim of his vitriol and as a result, they have distanced themselves from Pakistan due to Imran Niazi; he regretted and pointed out that Imran Niazi, who claimed to become an advocate of Pakistan and Kashmir cause, has miserably failed to fulfill his commitment. Imran Niazi will have to be answerable for all his sins very soon, he stated. Imran Niazi will have to be answerable even in the court of the public, he added.

To a question, Hamza Shahbaz explained that Imran Niazi is trying to play with the constitution and pointed out that doors of the Supreme Court were opened to uphold the constitution. There would have been no constitution in the country if the doors of the Supreme Court were not opened in the dead of night, he added. What has been done during the last four years, except taking revenge, and creating chaos in the country while fake promises were made with the youth about employment and a circus going on in Punjab? The Punjab governor has played havoc with the constitution, he commented.

To another question, the Punjab CM maintained that the price hike has made people mentally sick. The government is trying to create ease in the lives of the common man and a public welfare agenda would be brought out within the next few days. A decrease in the prices of edibles would be the first part of this agenda; he disclosed and added that the murder of the father of Mian Naveed would be investigated and criminals would be taken to task.

Earlier, the CM visited the residence of PML-N MPA Mian Naveed Ali Arain and condoled with the bereaved family. He offered fateha for the departed soul and assured that the requirements of justice would be fulfilled. Senior politician Ata MAnika, MPAs namely Kh. Salman Rafique, Kh. Imran Nazir, Majid Zahoor, Imran Goraya and party workers were also present.

The chief minister inspected various sections of DHQ hospital Pakpattan and inquired the patients and their attendants about the facilities. He directed to move a little girl, sitting in the waiting area, to the emergency ward for treatment without delay.

Talking on this occasion, Hamza disclosed that the 2nd shift of the hepatitis clinics would be started soon. Provision of the best medical facilities to the people is my mission and I have inspected hospitals in various districts during their visits. I have issued instructions to provide free medicines and every hurdle in the provision of the best healthcare facility in hospitals would be removed, he vowed.
