Govt must undertake census exercise before upcoming elections: Sarwar
Lahore August 26 (Online): Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Punjab leader and former governor Punjab Chaudhry Muhammad Sarwar has demanded immediate establishment of local bodies and execution of census as not doing both of these was akin to murder of democracy.
He was addressing a PTI workers convention with many others including PTI Leader Syed Samsam Bukhari, ITF Leader Waseem Ch , Ayshe Nazir Jutt etc. He said that the government doesn’t want to transfer powers at the grass root level because it is running a one man show in Punjab.
He also said that the government must undertake the census exercise before the upcoming elections so that the real count of population and information can be compiled.
PMLN is creating hindrances in the way of getting a census done, however PTI requests the Supreme court to issue immediate orders of holding a census in the country.
“Several months have passed since the local bodies elections, but till date the Punjab government has not granted any powers which is nullification of democracy and we condemn it, he added”.
PTI leader Samsam Bukhari said that if rulers want to strengthen and secure democracy then they must correct their governance methodology and way. He said that children being abducted for organs are another great cause of concern where parents feel insecure and are worried for their children’s security. Today, criminals are feeling more secure than ever in Punjab.
