The Nation  |  Sep 19, 2021

ISLAMABAD - PML-N MPA Azhar Abbas Chandia Saturday announced to join PTI during a corner meeting arranged here at Chowk Sarwar Shaheed.

In his short address to his workers, he said PML-N leadership had disappointed him and so he reposed confidence in leadership of Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar. He said he already had good working relationship with the Chief Minister. Azhar Abbas Chandia said he would work under leadership of Usman Buzdar to eliminate long-held deprivations among the masses of his area.

He hailed the steps taken by the Punjab Chief Minister for development of the province, saying, the later had already approved development funds for his constituency (PP-269).

Meanwhile, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister (SAPM) on Political Communication Dr Shahbaz Gill on Saturday said 

recently-held Cantonment Board elections have proved that Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) was limited to a few constituencies.

In response to the statement of Shehbaz Sharif, he said incompetent leadership of PML-N was fugitive after conviction in corruption cases. Party workers were looking for missing leaders, he added.

He said tug of war was going for the power in PML-N. The SAPM said ‘Showbaz Sharif’ was proud of those projects in which kickback was taken.  The people could not get ‘Sasti Roti’ from ‘Sasti Roti Scheme’ due to ‘Showbazi’. 

Provision of laptops was not wrong but provision of most expensive laptops was totally wrong, he said.

Shahbaz Gill said entire budget of small cities were spent on Metro bus and Orange Line train projects. 

The Punjab government has to pay Rs75 million per day subsidy on Orange Line Train, he added. He said PML-N provided Rs 29 billion subsidy on sugar during its five years tenure.
