Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said while commenting on the Pakistan Democratic Movement’s (PDM) public meeting in Quetta that the opposition parties have created hullabaloo in the garb of “giving respect to vote”.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the chief minister said a nefarious conspiracy was being hatched to weaken Pakistan by making the national institutions controversial.

“These institutions are our pride and people of Pakistan will foil every such effort. The nation is proud of the Pakistan Army. Those who are creating chaos should refrain from making the institutions controversial,” he said.

“PTI is firmly standing with the institutions. Those who are targeting the institutions will not succeed in their nefarious designs,” the chief minister said.

He said those who were hurling allegations should first observe their own role. He said that Prime Minister Imran Khan had given identity to south Punjab but the PML-N and PPP had usurped the rights of the people of the region. Both parties chanted hollow slogans during their rule about making south Punjab a province but practically did nothing in this regard.

“The PTI government set up South Punjab secretariat and now will carve out a province as well.”

Buzdar also said that Jam Kamal was the respectable Chief Minister of Balochistan and those who had passed objectionable remarks against him should be ashamed.

He said Punjab government had immediately resolved the issue of Balochistan’s students but a woman leader that tried to indulge in political point scoring on the matter. Punjab government has started projects of billions of rupees in Balochistan.

He said the ‘so-called’ leaders of PDM had tried to sabotage provincial harmony and brotherhood. They were neither genuine leaders in the past, nor would be tomorrow, he added. “This is a cabal of looters and the nation will not be deceived by this gang of thieves,” the CM concluded.
