Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar Thursday made it clear that there is no space for a presidential system in the country as the democratic system is strong enough in Pakistan.

He was talking to the beat reporters here in Lahore at Governor House. He was of the view that PTI can easily win the next elections if good governance is ensured in the country.

“The government should strive to get the people rid of the inflation as it would definitely help us in the next elections.”

He added that both the PML-N and PPP completed their tenure and now it is our democratic right to complete our tenure. He once again reiterated that the government has no threat from the opposition and the elections will be held in the country in 2023.

Talking about his plan to contest the elections, he said that he will select the constituency after consulting the party and one thing is clear he will definitely contest the general election from Punjab.

He further said that as many as 1500 projects of water filtration plants under the Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority will be completed soon and different filtration plants will be inaugurated in Lahore on Sunday.

Governor said that the government has no threat from the opposition as the biggest challenge is inflation and unemployment. We are working hard to control inflation and poverty through different initiatives including Insaf Card, Ehsas Program and the Kisaan Card, adding that our victory is obvious if we are able to bring reforms in institutions like police and judiciary and our government is working effectively on it.

“We are providing relief to the people and it is a reality that we should work more in this regard.”

Talking about his recent visit to Europe, Governor Punjab said that he fought the case of Pakistan during his visit as he met more than 120 Members of Parliament (MPs) to get the extension in GSP plus status for Pakistan.

“I have discussed the Afghanistan and Kashmir issue during my visit to Europe and UK and also highlighted the peace efforts of Pakistan”, he said. “The whole world is now appreciating the role of Pakistan in the Afghan peace process. It is the reality that the peace in the whole world isn’t possible without achieving peace in Afghanistan and, therefore, the whole world should play its role in it.”

Governor Punjab also condemned the incident of terrorism in Lahore while adding that Pakistan will definitely defeat the terrorists.

There are many foreign forces who are trying to destabalise Pakistan through such acts but one thing is “clear that the people of Pakistan and the Pakistan Army is committed to foil the nefarious designs of the enemy. We’ll make Pakistan a peaceful country and all the conspiracies of the enemy will be foiled.”

 Talking about the Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority, Governor Punjab said that 1500 projects of filtration plants are completed without any political differentiation as we also installed the plants in the constituencies of opposition leaders.

He added, we have ensured complete transparency in these projects and therefore the international organistaions including the UNICEF is also collaborating with us in our mission to provide clean drinking water to the people of Punjab. "I assure you that more than 7 million people of Punjab will get the clean drinking water soon," he said

Talking about the recent wave of COVID-19, Governor Punjab said that everyone should adopt precautionary measures to avoid the Omicron variant. It is our national responsibility to wear a face mask to get ourselves safe from the deadly virus.

“Our team is ready once again to provide the services in the COVID as we did earlier through Telemedicine under the banner of Punjab Development Network,” he said.
