Tribune’s Gamechangers 2011: Shahbaz Sharif

The face of the Punjab anti-dengue campaign.


Express January 08, 2012

From surveying water tankers and ensuring areas are sprayed with insecticide to doling out compensation to victims’ families, Shahbaz Sharif came to be known as the ‘dengue brother’ for his active involvement in the campaign.

While critics pointed out that hundreds died after falling victim to the virus, many also asserted that Shahbaz had worked hard to eradicate the threat of dengue from his province.

Fun fact: Khadem-e-Ala has attended only a handful of Punjab Assembly sessions this year. He was present at the session when the provincial budget was passed and has been absent since June, reportedly being present at his chambers and not at the session.
