NAROWAL: Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif once again criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan’s performance in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
“I do not understand how opposition parties criticise us. Did Imran Khan make even one new hospital?” the Punjab chief minister said while addressing an inaugural ceremony at District Headquarters Hospital in Narowal on Friday.
“Niazi Sb, you have destroyed Peshawar,” Shehbaz said while referring to the PTI chairman.
Sharing the development projects launched in Punjab and health facilities in the province, Shehbaz said, “They [PTI] used to call me ‘Showbaz Sharif’ and termed Lahore Metro Bus project ‘jungla bus’ but now they are spending billions to make a metro bus for Peshawar.”
“It is still unknown when the Metro Bus will build in Peshawar. The nation has now run out of patience.
Stating that the poor and the rich are being provided with equal facilities across Punjab, the provincial chief minister said, “In KP, not one hospital university or college has been built in the last five years.”
Zardari has ruined Karachi and committed corruption worth billion of rupees.”
“Even Sindh has been destroyed. Just look at what has been done in Karachi,” he added.
Punjab CM asserted that every year billions are spend over health care in Punjab. “On what basis do the opponents criticize us? 5000MW electricity has been produced from gas in Punjab and is being transmitted in whole Pakistan,” he told.
“Millions of people had not sacrificed for the Pakistan of influential people. We have provided economical facilities of treatment to the poor in the province. Free CT scan will be done 24 hours while its report will be issued from Lahore. In the past CT scan machines would have stopped operation at 2pm,” Sharif maintained.
Shehbaz further said, “Punjab government has initiated a new phase of public health in the country.”
“Millions sacrificed so the poor could be provided quality health care,” he added.
