Express April 13, 2011

LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Shahbaz Sharif on Wednesday called drone attacks a grave crime which he believes are being carried out with the help of the government.

The chief minister, addressing the media after a prize distribution ceremony at a technical school in the rangers’ headquarters in Lahore, urged the public to unite against the drone attacks.

He blamed the aggressive drone campaign of increasing extremism rather than reducing it.

Commenting on dyke breaches during last year’s floods, he said the judicial inquiry was completed adding that the report will soon be handed to the Cant committee and appropriate measures will be taken.
