LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif said on Saturday that negative politics will be wiped out after the 2018 General Elections. He said certain elements were actively trying to damage the national economy

Talking to parliamentarians, he said opponents were afraid of rapid development and progress in the country. The CM added that those engaged in negative politics should stop playing with the country’s fate and let Pakistan progress.

"Our opponents are afraid of the four successful years of PML-N and are frightened that the elimination of load shedding by PML-N government will end their politics."

He said political performers had looted national resources and were also supporting the “sit-in group”. He urged them to look and see the faces of those who had got hefty loans written off by land grabbers.

“It is unfortunate that Niazi Sahab (Imran Khan) has not learnt a lesson from repeated defeats in the past. History will record his name among those who conspired against Pakistan's development and prosperity,” he maintained.

The CM said those trying to bring bad luck to the people should mend their ways. He pointed out that efforts had been made in the past to damage the development process through sit-ins, lockdowns, civil disobedience and protests, but the common man distanced himself from politics of violence and protest. He was confident that the public would again foil all attempts of negative elements in the general and local government elections.

He said the person responsible for the criminal delay in the Nandipur Power Project had taken refuge in the “accountability party”. Shehbaz continued that one party plunged the country into darkness due to its corruption and the second obstructed power projects through protests.

“The main objective of those leveling allegations against an elected leadership is to hinder the development process in the country. Opponents of progress should realise that every trick of their negative politics has failed.”

He said loans worth billions of rupees had been written off and those pretending to be aristocrats should also be brought to justice. “Writing off loans is also a crime and there has to be indiscriminate accountability of all involved in the loot of national resources,” he suggested.

Shehbaz asserted that baseless allegations leveled against the PML-N leadership did not have the remotest link with reality and lies had been fabricated by liars.

The CM said Nawaz Sharif had put Pakistan on the road to progress and prosperity and those leveling baseless allegations wanted to upset this process. “People will not be hoodwinked by juggler politicians. Shehbaz stated the PML-N government will continue implementing its manifesto of public service, he resolved.
