LAHORE: National Assembly Member Hamza Shehbaz has said that democracy is the only way to put the country on the road to progress and prosperity.
He said this while talking to media persons during a visit to the Institute of Mental Health in Lahore on Saturday.
Hamza strongly criticised the politics of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Imran Khan and said five years of K-P had been wasted by the PTI.
“Imran Khan should go to the masses in K-P and seek pardon from them over his false promises,” said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz )PML-N) leader. “What kind of a revolution can Imran Khan bring with Jehangir Tareen and Aleem Khan!”
He said that the people of Lahore had once again rejected the politics of allegations. The PTI had failed to gather enough people to welcome Khan to the streets of Lahore, he added.
He called it a ‘good omen’ that “once again the government is going to complete its tenure and peaceful transition of power is going to take place”.
Hamza said no one could deceive the masses and people were well aware of who had served them. He added that a lot of work had been done and modern facilities had been provided in the health sector of Punjab.
“We must look into our weaknesses and always endeavor to improve the situation,” he said.
The PML-N leader took round of emergency and other sections of the Institute of Mental Health and enquired after the patients. He expressed sympathies with them and said, “Humanity is the biggest lesson, and we must pay attention towards those with mental illness.”
He said the candidates needed not challenge each other as people would themselves decide “who is eligible to get their vote”.
Hamza said that people’s mandate should be respected at all costs. He said those changing their loyalties would be examined by their voters and would be answerable to them as well.
