LAHORE: Governor Punjab Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar said on Wednesday that he was in no mood to resign as he had broader goals to achieve and many miles to go to fulfil the promises made by Prime Minister Imran Khan with the people of Pakistan.
Addressing a press conference at the Governor House, Sarwar brushed aside rumours, making rounds in the media, of his resignation as Governor Punjab, adding it was mere drawing room gossip.
The Governor dispelled the impression about any differences with Prime Minister Imran Khan, Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar or Speaker Punjab Assembly Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, claiming he even remained in constant contact with Pervaiz Elahi during recent foreign visits.
However, he announced to disassociate himself as Chairman from the Sarwar Foundation, a non-governmental organization (NGO) run by him and his wife Parveen Sarwar, in the wake of public criticism, adding the funds collected by the Sarwar Foundation from his recent foreign visits as Governor Punjab would be transferred to the Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority for installation of water filtration plants in the province.
"I will not take part in any fund-raising campaigns of the NGO as long as I am Governor of the province, my wife will look after affairs", he added.
