“The world is lit with Iqbal’s poetry,” said the CM while addressing the media in Lahore on Thursday after visiting the mausoleum of the late poet. “However, we still remain in the dark and are constantly struggling”.

He lauded the ideologies of the poet, and commented that the country had a long way to go before they achieved Iqbal’s dreams. The CM raised concern over social issues of class and equal opportunities in the country.

“Corruption has ruined our country and its structure,” the CM said. “The corrupt are being treated like the elite in our country, and we all know who steals in millions. If we don’t change our role, then history will never forgive us for it.”
