LAHORE - Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that flawed economic policies of the past rulers caused an irreparable loss to the national economy.

In a statement issued on Sunday, the chief minister said that Prime Minister Imran Khan and his economic team have set the national economy in the right direction. He said the opposition was trying to create unrest in the country and it had no agenda of public welfare. He said that opposition parties were ideologically opposed to one another but were united for their vested interests.

He said that those hatching conspiracies to create instability in the province would not succeed in their nefarious designs. He said the incumbent government had worked really hard to put the country on the path to progress. He said previous governments had destroyed the country’s economy but the present one under the dynamic leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan had taken corrective measures to revive the economy.

Buzdar lamented that certain elements did not want development in the country, adding that the government would complete its tenure since the people had given five-year mandate to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). Buzdar said that all institutions were on one page for development of the country and those who wanted clash between institutions would just face failure. He said that in the past corruption ruined different departments, adding that the menace would be rooted out.

He said the ongoing war against the corrupt mafia will continue till achievement of the desired results. He said that opposition parties will face utter failure and dejection as 220 million people of Pakistan wanted a new Pakistan free of exploitation.

Current century after passing through evolutionary stage of information technology has entered the era of artificial intelligence. It is the determination of the PTI government to make every child and adult computer literate,” he maintained.
