LAHORE:  

Punjab Governor Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar said that there is no room for corruption, injustice and oppression in Naya Pakistan. He expressed these views while speaking to MNA Rahat Amanullah Bhatti, Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) Leader Athar Rasheed and Khalid Gujjar at the Governor House on Sunday.

Holding corrupt individuals accountable is the strength of a democracy and is not a sign of weakness, he stated. “The PTI government’s vision is to uplift the socio economic mobility of the common man,” he maintained. There will be no compromise on the issue of free and air accountability, he added. Anyone involved in corrupt practices will have to be held accountable, he said.

Sarwar expressed that Prime Minister Imran Khan is the only leader with a vision after Quaid-e-Azam. “I have been inspired by many political leaders in history but the prime minister’s charismatic personality has inspired me a lot,” he said. Pakistan will rise under the leadership of Imran Khan in the coming months, he added.

The country needs democratic accountability because it is a prerequisite for good governance. The country’s economy will become the best in Asia due to the policies of the current economic team, he said. Foreign investors are thronging the country due to the prime minister’s vision, he said.

The PTI government will rid the country of issues such as unemployment, corruption and poverty, the governor said. He stated that Pakistan stands with the people of Kashmir. In order to obtain peace in the region, the Kashmir issue mist be resolved in accordance with the United Nations (UN) resolutions. The governor condemned the brutality of Indian forces in Kashmir and stated that no one can stop Kashmiri people from achieving independence, he said.
