Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar has said that Pakistan deviated from its true destination owing to wrong policies of the previous rulers. While terming the ex-leaders as culprits, Punjab CM said the nation was treated unjustly by exhausting the country’s assets over show-off projects.
“People were deprived of basic rights in the past as the rulers laid stress only on increasing their personal wealth and neglected the masses altogether,” Buzdar said. He said that “Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government is rectifying the mistakes made by the erstwhile governments”, adding that Pakistan is moving towards its true destination under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan had said that courts and institutions were free in Naya Pakistan and no one was above the law.
“Naya Pakistan is a Pakistan of a common man, and we believe that the national assets belong to the people,” he said.

There will be no compromise on the issue of free and fair accountability, he had, adding that anyone involved in corrupt practices would be held accountable.
