LAHORE: Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) Punjab President Mian Manzoor Wattoo has said that Chief Minister (CM) Shahbaz Sharif should become a foreign minister as he spends most of his time on foreign tours, leaving the province of Punjab at the disposal of his sons to run it.
In a statement on Friday, Wattoo said that it would be appropriate if the largest province of Pakistan was administered by a full-time and dedicated chief minister to immediately address pressing issues pertaining to law and order, power outages and heinous crimes that had registered unprecedented surge more recently.
Himself a former chief minister, Wattoo pointed out that the incumbent chief minister was unable to provide leadership to the province because of his ‘other preoccupations’; therefore, he should be given responsibilities measuring up to his ‘new interest’.
He said that members of the ruling party were equally allergic to the treatment meted out to them by the chief minister as they were hardly taken into confidence on matters relating to their constituencies or other important national or provincial issues.
He said that treasury members were annoyed over the obstinacy of chief minister that was unfortunately limitless also.
He said that Shahbaz Sharif’s chief ministership was confined only to Ferozepur Road in Lahore while the rest of the province was suffering due to his indifference to carrying out development in other regions.
