LA­HORE: Pun­jab Chief Min­is­ter She­hbaz Sharif on Thurs­day said the big­gest hur­dle im­ped­ing the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try is cor­rup­tion and elim­i­na­tion of fair ac­count­abil­ity sys­tem.

She­hbaz Sharif was talk­ing to me­dia after vis­it­ing Iqbal's mau­soleum on his 140th birth an­niver­sary.

He laid a flo­ral wreath on Iqbal’s mau­soleum and of­fered Fateha. The CM also recorded his im­pres­sion in the Visi­tors Book.

While talk­ing to me­dia, he said that “We have to re­view what steps have been taken to stop cor­rup­tion till now,” he said.

Pun­jab CM main­tained that cor­rup­tion worth bil­lion of ru­pees has been done in the coun­try and ev­ery­one knows who is be­hind it.

He said that Iqbal’s po­etry and ideas also serve as a guid­ance in the present era. “It is still ques­tion­able to­day how much have we fol­lowed Iqbal’s say­ings.

We are plung­ing even to­day de­spite ex­is­tence of Iqbal’s thoughts and ideas,” said the CM.
