SIALKOT: Pakistan Muslim League Leader and Former Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi says he will build Kalabagh dam after coming into power with victory in the 2018 general election.
“Early establishment of the dam is the need of the hour and the PML has put it on top of its agenda for national prosperity and development,” he said at a convention of the party workers held here on Thursday.
He also pledged to provide affordable electricity to the masses at the rate of Rs3 per unit all over the country.
He said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had no moral right to stay in power after the Supreme Court’s verdict in the Panama Papers’ case.
He said Nawaz Sharif was not “Sadiq” and “Ameen” as observed by the SC judges but still he was not ready to quit. He urged the premier to tender resignation in the national interest and face the public court.
He alleged that the rulers were plundering the national wealth and Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif was spending Punjab’s 63pc budget only in Lahore by neglecting the other parts of the province.
The PML workers kept chanting “Go Nawaz go” slogan during the workers’ convention.
