Talk of change: Sharif distributes 8,000 laptops in Multan

Says his party is the biggest impediment for Pakistan’s enemies.

Our Correspondent February 08, 2012


Addressing a ceremony after the distribution of laptops at the Bahauddin Zakariyah University, Multan, PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif said that his party was the biggest impediment for those trying to harm Pakistan.

Sharif said on Tuesday that PML-N is not going to let anyone destroy Pakistan in the name of change, and that “those calling for change are bluffing the youth into changing, not our system, but our values, norms and traditions. We will not let them distort our values and traditions because the youth stands under our umbrella.”

He asked the youth “to never forget our culture, which is our real identity.” He said political parties were trying to mislead the youth to gain power.

“Change is the only asset of PML-N, the foundations of which were laid in 1990, when we were punished for vouching for the accountability of corrupt politicians.”

This was Nawaz Sharif’s first trip to meet Multan’s people and its local leadership before the upcoming elections. Some 8,000 laptops were distributed among the students of Bahauddin Zakariyah University, Nishtar Medical College and other academic institutions of Multan.

“We have been awarding laptops worth about 12 billion rupees to five hundred thousand students. Top priority is given to merit, with no discrimination of creed, culture or caste,” Sharif said. “This is proof of our comprehensive planning and commitment to bring about real change.”

All parties run election campaigns when elections are around the corner. However what is important is the fact that merit is being considered, an e revolution is being ushered in. Many of these deserving and hard working students would have access to information around the world, Can earn money while working at homes as an outsource. These are just the short term advantages let alone the long term ones. We as a nation have become to critical f every body. Most of ppl know that shabaz shharif has not been fostering corruption during this tenure.
