Lahore: Chief Minister Punjab Shehbaz Sharif claimed that Pakistan will produce surplus electricity by 2018, while addressing an event in Lahore on Thursday.
He remarked that load shedding is on the verge of elimination in the country. "This is all because of the efforts of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and its head Nawaz Sharif."
On country's security situation, he said that "all fragments of terrorism have been eliminated." He added, "Pakistan Army troops have given their blood to get rid of the menace of terrorism".
"Our struggle against terrorism is a great tale of the sacrifices of law enforcing agencies, Pakistan Army and police," the CM remarked.
He added, "We have to accept this challenge today and make our future better."
He reiterated that PML-N has used all its resources to improve the lives of the people. "All resources are being used to improve law and order situation, along with health and education departments."
Transparency has been the policy of PML-N since the start, Shehbaz added.
On health facilities in Punjab, he explained that a network of filter clinics is being laid down in different parts of the province. The clinics will provide aid to cancer patients and help in early detection of the disease.
He remarked that measures have been taken to combat water-borne diseases, adding that the greatest contribution of Punjab government has been that patients are being provided with genuine medicines.
Earlier in the day, Shehbaz inaugurated a speedo bus service as an initiative to propagate the rapid mass transportation system in the province.
Addressing the inauguration ceremony in Multan, Sharif said that no government worked for south Punjab as the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz government did in the last four years.
He said that a clean water project costing Rs24 billion is in the pipeline for southern Punjab.
While criticising arch-rivals, the Tehreek-e-Insaf Pakistan, he said that the ruling party in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa only spoke of a new Pakistan but never worked on it.
