ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Political Communication Dr Shahbaz Gill on Monday said that the country’s economy was strengthening and the government would deliver in all sectors including sports.
Addressing the media person here, he said it was the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan to mobilize the youth of the country and the credit went to Usman Dar for its materialization.
He congratulated the sports journalists for their active role and said promotions of sports activities were equally important for any nation and its development. Nations felt proud owing to various sports, he added.
He said sports activities helped create a healthy environment for competition among the youth and he was proud of the youth who were participating in the mega sports event.
He lauded the efforts of an entire team of Kamyab Jawan Programme under Usman Dar for organizing such a mega sports event after decades in the federal capital.
Taking about yesterday’s by-poll in Lahore, Gill said the turn-out remained only 18 percent and 82 percent of voters opted to stay away from the process as only PPP and PML-N nominated candidates were in the run for NA 133 seat.
When the contest was among PPP and PML-N candidates only, a similar number of people came to vote, he added.
