He said that subsidy of billions of rupees and provision of best transport facilities to common man will be a constant prick for the elites and they will be in pain for the provision of facilities to the common man and the subsidy of billions of rupees.CM Punjab-2It is the right of the elites to travel in expensive cars but when it comes to the facility of a poor man, this question becomes a constant nagging prick for them. Punjab Government is utilizing the resources with honesty on providing the best facilities in education, health and transportation sector. Those who travel in Mercedes, Pajero and expensive cars feel insecure, jealous and suffer from tenesmus after seeing a common man traveling with comfort and respect and they can criticize without any solid argument, however, I don’t get affected by their approach. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has laid a responsibility of serving common man on my shoulders and I will fulfill my promise at any cost and I will go to any limit to change their lifestyle by providing them with better standard facilities so that they can also feel themselves as respectable Pakistani citizens. They cannot intervene with me in serving common man as I am and will be burning midnight oil to change the lifestyle of a common man. Those who are indulged in corruption, unscrupulous deeds and frauds have no right to criticize the welfare projects for a common man, in other words their looted money should be showered on common man or otherwise their corrupt money should be snatched from them and should be spend on providing the health, education and transportation facilities of a common man, He further stated that 23 March is on its way and this historical day is celebrated with zeal and avidity, we have struggled for a separate homeland for a reason and the reason hasn’t been achieved so far. We can build Pakistan a real Islamic welfare state after implementing the sayings of Iqbal and Quaid where laws and rules prevails and where everyone is getting equal opportunities to excel.CM Punjab-3The standard transportation facility is the one of the example of Quaid’s directions and Government is working on Quaid’s teachings under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. He also added that common man has been deprived of health, education and other facilities while elites are keeping hold of the facilities. Poor man has to go door to door for basic health facilities while the upper class can get cured anywhere with much ease. Punjab Government has worked really hard in providing best health facilities to poor man and has set an example for the rest. We will not compromise on those who creating hindrance in providing standard facilities to the common man and I will not sit with ease until or unless I will not provide them with best facilities and thus will work endlessly to change their lifestyles. He has also congratulated the nation for the inauguration of the new feeder bus service and also appreciated the efforts of the concerned departments who have worked day and night to provide common man with best transportation facilities. Further added, this feeder bus service is a present for the nation on the historical day of 23 March and also directed the elites to travel in the bus and stated that I will also commute in the same bus and together we will make Pakistan prosperous. Let’s hold hand of miserable people as our riddance, welfare and respect lies in it. He also stated the under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif the energy projects are heading towards completion and sooner the nation will be ridden away from the dark. In his conversation with the media Chief Minister has said that I don’t want to comment on anything however Niazi Sahib is working on the same Jangla Bus Project in Peshawar, the one he has criticized a lot in the past and we all know that this project provide respectable and comfortable secure transport facility to the common man. I will not call it Jangla Bus but will congratulate Peshawar people on the inaugural of splendid bus system that will facilitate the common man. Further added, he said that Niazi Sahib has finally acknowledged the importance of Metro Bus System instead of criticizing it like in the past, he always gives a late verdict. I will request to them to refrain calling this standard transport facility as Jangla Bus but to provide the people of KPK with this splendid bus service. Punjab Government has cooperated with KPK brothers as they are dear to us and has provided them with much cooperation and details. In one question related to inter-transport, he answered that transport department should take steps for the betterment and revival of the system.
