ISLAMABAD, (Pakistan Point News - APP - 21st Jan, 2017 ) : Minister for Interior and Narcotics Control Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Saturday said the government was putting forth the best efforts to honour the confidence reposed by the people in it. The development projects were being initiated after taking into confidence the people of respective areas as due to hard work and efforts of the present regime, better results began to appear, he said while addressing a public gathering in Chakri, some 50 kms away from the Federal Capital.
He said the government realized the problems of people of backward areas and was giving priority to their development. When the British had left the Sub-continent there were no roads and bridges in Chakri and its adjoining areas but today the area had 11 bridges and well-developed road network, he added. The minister said during last three years electricity supply, water supply schemes, roads network, health, medical and education facilities in the area were ensured.
He said more than Rs one billion was being spent on the Chakri road project. Nisar said the opposition parties were criticizing him unnecessarily, but "I am committed to development and welfare of the people of the area and consider this as my responsibility to serve you." "I really feel sorry for pack of lies being told by the opposition but I do not care for their criticism for the sake of criticism. I have great respect for the people of Chauntra, Rawat, Kalar Syedan and Taxila, who voted for me to serve them," he said.
The minister said General Pervez Musharraf had never wanted him (Nisar) to come in the National Assembly but "I am thankful to the people of my constituency for their cooperation and votes which I will always remember." He said the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leaders had pain for the masses and that was why they were executing projects for their betterment and prosperity. Nisar said he had been in politics for the last 35 years and was a satisfied person.
People's respect was earned through character and not through posts, he added. Later addressing political gatherings at Rajar and Sihal, the Interior Minister said if anyone wanted to do politics then he should better show character and work on practical ground instead of havnig criticism. While highlighting the reasons of the country's tribulations, he said the one-sided propaganda and verbal fights only concealed the facts. "I always talked with arguments and showing performance while my opponents have nothing to do except leveling allegations and indulging in blame game," Nisar maintained.
He said the people, who changed political parties and loyalties with seasonal waves, were not politicians rather they were political traders and opportunists. Talking about the current political atmosphere in the country, he said the people, who had never differentiated between Halaal and Haraam, were holding long march against corruption. Only that country would make progress where disputes were decided in courts and not on Chowks or roads, he added. Leading politicians of Rajer and Sihal joined the Paksitan Muslim League-Nawaz on the occasion.
