LAHORE: The Punjab government is implementing merit policy and there is no room for corruption as idols of sifarish, nepotism and corruption have been broken in the province, said Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday.
The chief minister was talking to the third batch of students leaving for China to learn Chinese language. The delegation of 39 students will leave for China on April 13 from Lahore.
The Punjab government is sending male and female students to China to learn Chinese language and provision of resources for these students is not expenditure but investment, said Shehbaz, adding provision of resources to impart modern education to the youth is profitable investment and for this purpose all-out resources will be used as youths are our country’s future.
Chinese Consul General Long Dung and Shehbaz distributed laptops among the students. Shehbaz said that friendship of Pakistan and China is exemplary and relationships between both the countries are distinguished and endless.
