Pakistan Observer - - NATIONAL -

SHEIKHUPURA—Fed­eral Min­is­ter for De­fence Pro­duc­tion and Science & Tech­nol­ogy Rana Tan­vir Hus­sain has said the in­cum­bent gov­ern­ment is spend­ing bil­lions of ru­pees to pro­vide ba­sic fa­cil­i­ties to peo­ple es­pe­cially in the fields of health and ed­u­ca­tion. Talk­ing to jour­nal­ists here on Fri­day, he said the gov­ern­ment was pro­vid­ing all fa­cil­i­ties to the new gen­er­a­tion to make progress through get­ting qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

He said the tar­get of a fast-paced progress could only be achieved through ed­u­ca­tion pro­mo­tion and mak­ing a healthy so­ci­ety. He said spend­ing bil­lions of ru­pees by the gov­ern­ment for com­ple­tion of devel­op­ment projects was un­prece­dented in the his­tory of Pak­istan. He added op­po­nents of the gov­ern­ment were only cre­at­ing hur­dles in the way of devel­op­ment of the coun­try.

Rana Tan­vir said when Prime Min­is­ter Muham­mad Nawaz Sharif came to power, the coun­try was pass­ing through se­ri­ous cri­sis. How­ever, the fed­eral gov­ern­ment, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Pun­jab gov­ern­ment, launched a num­ber of power projects which would end elec­tric­ity short­age in the coun­try soon.

The Min­is­ter said the PML-N gov­ern­ment was ful­fill­ing all prom­ises it had made with the peo­ple dur­ing the elec­tion cam­paign. In re­ply to a ques­tion, the min­is­ter said the elec­tronic and print me­dia should gain all in­for­ma­tion about Panama leaks and in­form peo­ple about those whose names had ap­peared in the leaks.

He said the PML-N gov­ern­ment would com­plete its term and the op­po­nents would have to face hu­mil­i­a­tion. He said the gov­ern­ment and the army were on one page in the war against ter­ror­ism, and they would not take rest till elim­i­na­tion of all ter­ror­ists from the coun­try.

Ear­lier, the min­is­ter along with Pun­jab Par­lia­men­tary Sec­re­tary Pir Ashraf Ra­sool, PML-N District Pres­i­dent Muham­mad Arif Khan Sind­hila, District Ushar and Zakat Com­mit­tee Chair­man and Pres­i­dent PML-N Labour Wing Pun­jab Syed Mush­taq Hus­sain Shah vis­ited the pass­port of­fice here. The Min­is­ter an­nounced to dou­ble the staff, com­puter sys­tem and a sep­a­rate counter for women in the of­fice.
