LAHORE: PML-Q Punjab President Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi on Sunday said that the Punjab Government has turned ‘wealthy Punjab’ into a ‘very broke Punjab’.
Speaking at a Workers’ Convention in Gujranwala, Elahi said that a lot of trouble is expected due to the irresponsibility of the Punjab Government. He said that 14,000 cheques of the Punjab Government have bounced and it had no money to pay salaries either.
He said that Shahbaz Sharif was inaugurating long term projects just to put on a facade and it seemed as if he is carrying a plaque that says ‘Punjab for sale’.
At the end of the convention, the former chief minister announced a Rs.1 lakh cheque for Mohammad Inam Butt, the gold medal winner at the Commonwealth Games.
