I’m here to stay as Governor Punjab: Taseer

LAHORE: Punjab Governor Salman Taseer has urged the poiticians to promote culture of political tolerance in the country with hatred towards none.

I’m here to stay as Governor Punjab: Taseer“I’ve been targeted by the political opponents for nothing but they should stay rest assured that I’m here to stay as Governor Punjab”, he said while responding to media men after the prize distribution ceremony of 27th Governor’s Golf Cup tournament here on Sunday.

Replying to a query, Punjab Governor said that those who mutilated the constitution in the past were claiming to be the champions of democracy and constitution today.

He urged the Punjab government of Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif to avoid anti-people policies, adding that he had always tendered advice to the Punjab government whether it was the demolition of commercial buildings in Lahore or wasting of rupees 9 billion on Sasti Roti scheme in Punjab.

Taseer feared that the ‘Aashiana’ housing scheme would prove to be a new scam of the Punjab government.

To a question regarding ‘Aashiana’ housing facility, Taseer said that Punjab government was exploiting the haplessness of the poor masses, asserting that rupees 900 were being extorted from the needy people under the “Aashiana” scheme which tantamounted to robbing people.

Taseer said that mere 3000 houses were offered to the people while millions of rupees would be collected from the thousands of the poor in the province.

Punjab Governor parried away a question regarding sealing 26 petrol pumps by the Punjab government in the provincial metropolis, adding that he would comment on it some other time.

Earlier, the Punjab Governor gave away prizes among the winners of 27th Governor’s Cup Golf Tournament. – APP
