LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif has offered to educate Imran Khan in setting up new development projects.
Addressing the media after inauguration of the revamped DHQ Hospital Narowal, the chief minister said, “Opponents call me as ‘*Showbaz’* and allege that I only construct roads and bridges and have no interest in health and education…I have arranged coaching for you in 36 districts of the province. You should come here and we will educate you about setting up new development schemes,” he said.
He said that Imran Khan used to claim that they will not develop jangla bus and roads in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (K-P) but instead, health and educational institutions will be developed. “They have failed to set up any quality medical university, state-of-the-art pathology lab, new colleges or hospitals there,” added Shehbaz.
“Imran Khan has given attention to jangla bus at the last leg of his tenure and the whole city of Peshawar has been turned upside down in the garb of this project… people have had enough with the project…I may be dangerous because I developed hospitals and educational institutions for the benefit of the indigent strata,” he said.
The CM said that power projects worth five thousand megawatts capacity have been set up by the Punjab government with its own resources. “Despite scorching heat, if there is no load-shedding, then it is the reward of struggle of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) for overcoming the energy crisis,” he added.
