12 December, 2012
LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif has announced to provide interest-free loans worth of three billion rupees to some 200,000 families under Self-Employment Scheme.
He was addressing at a ceremony arranged in connection with distribution of certificates to mark the increase in the number of boy and girl students getting technical education under auspices of Punjab Vocational Training Council beyond the figure of 200,000 and awarding of cheques of interest-free loans under Self-Employment Scheme of Punjab government here at Alhmara Hall on Tuesday.
CM Punjab said that if the country got rid of Zar Baba Forty Thieves in the forthcoming general elections, interest-free loans will be given in every corner of the country and the scope of this programme will be extended to 400,000 families.
He said that under the pretext of attending Malalah Conference in Paris, Asif Zardari has gone to France to make a deal in the case of receiving kickbacks of millions of dollars in the purchase of submarines in 1994. He said that it is an open secret that Zardari was paid a commission of millions of dollars in the deal for submarines and now this case has again surfaced.
He said on the one hand Asif Zardari expresses solidarity with Malalah Yousafzai but on the other hand he is depriving millions of other daughters of the country of education, health and other facilities through loot and corruption. If Zardari did not bring the looted money back, millions of Malalahs of the country will rise in protest, as it is the hard-earned money of the poor masses, he stated.
