Addressing the prize distribution ceremony, Hamza said Pakistani nation would never bow to terrorism. He said targeting Christians in bomb blast in Peshawar was a tragic incident which was highly condemnable. He said the whole nation shared the grief of Christian community. He said it was high time that all people living in the country should become a wall against terrorism. He expressed hope that 190 million people of the country would win the war and a handful of mischievous elements and terrorists could not make hostage the entire nation.
Hamza said problems like loadshedding, price-hike and unemployment could not shatter the spirit and determination of the nation. He said the country would soon achieve the goal of economic independence under the leadership of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
The PML-N leader said Nawaz Sharif had started operation in Karachi against mischievous elements and murderers without succumbing to any pressure and similarly, the struggle against terrorism was going on in other parts of the country.
He said the PML-N government was endeavoring for eliminating terrorism and other crises by rising above all kinds of politics. He said the PM, during his successful visits to China and Turkey, had expressed his clear commitment to resolving the energy crisis through Gidani and Lal Sohanra solar energy projects. He said it was not the fate of Pakistan to be called a beggar and terrorist country. He said a number of problems, including restoration of judiciary, had been resolved in the past.
Hamza Sharif further said that the Punjab government had made it clear to the world by completing projects like Daanish schools, Metro Bus System, assistance to flood affectees and Aashiana schemes through its own resources by refusing aid. He said the youth was precious asset to the country.The news.
