While addressing senior journalists in Lahore, the PM said that he has written a letter to the Chief Justice (CJ) in regards to the formation of the commission, adding that the CJ can make changes in the Terms of References (TORs) of the commission upon his own will. He said that no scandal of the current government has surfaced and that it has the support of the people.
PM Nawaz stated that the government does not fear accountability as former dictator Pervez Musharraf did accountability against him for 9 years but was unable to find him involved in any wrongdoings.
“Will not cease the process of development and prosperity” he said, further adding that “peace in Karachi has been restored”. Referring to Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan, PM said that those who ask for “their turn” are unaware that they will not get their turn in this manner.
Prior to having this discussion, PM Nawaz led an important meeting at the Governor House in Lahore. Punjab Governor Rafique Rajwana, Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shehbaz Sharif, Chief Secretary, Punjab Inspector General (IG) and secretaries of other departments were present during the meeting. Discussion in regards to the progress made in various ongoing developmental projects took place during the meeting.
PM stated that the next phase of the Local Body elections shall conclude in May and that the authority shall be handed over to the people at local level in true spirit. He added that the journey towards prosperity and development will end in 2018 and that he himself will monitor the developmental projects.
He said that the people have rejected those who cause unrest in the country. He stated that the problems faced by the people will be solved at their doorsteps, adding that complete attention will be paid towards providing basic facilities to the people.
