LAHORE, Mar 30 (APP): Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Ataullah Tarar said on Saturday that recovery of the country’s economy and solving people’s problems is the top priority of the government.
He was talking to media after condoling the death of PML-N worker Attique Chaudhry with his family at his house. Prime Minister Youth Programme’s Chairman Rana Mashhood, Tauseef Shah and other party leaders and workers were also present.
Attaullah Tarar added that due to the viable policies of the government, the rupee value against the US dollar had stabilized, and the inflation rate would decrease further in the coming days.
Eulogising party workers, he said that the Pakistan Muslim League (N) always stood by the voice of its workers and sacrifices of political workers had strengthened democracy.
The Federal Information Minister said that first priority of the government was to restore the economy and solve the problems of people. “In this regard the government is working day and night. Due to the timely and positive steps taken by the government on the instructions of Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif, the value of the rupee has stabilized,” he added. He was confident that inflation would decrease further in the coming days.
To a question, he said that Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif, for the first time in the country’s history, had sent a set documents to all ministries for achieving short and long-term goals such as reduction of inflation;  solution to economic problems; and ending unemployment. He mentioned that strict instructions had also been issued to the ministries for timely achievement of the goals, adding that the Prime Minister would review the performance of all ministries related to these goals. Tarar further said that the PTI government had created numerous economic crisis, due to which the PML-N in the previous allied government had focused on measures to restore the economy in the last 16 months. By overcoming these problems, he said, the PML-N is all committed to pull the country out of the crises it is facing and turn it into an economic hub.
The federal minister said that the sacrifices of political workers had strengthened democracy and they had always been the capital of the party. The PML-N has always stood as the voice of its workers and did the politics of public service and protected the rights of its workers. He vowed that the party would never leave its workers alone, asserting that sincere workers who never compromised on their conscience and stood by their party in difficult times, are always remembered.
He said, “The late Attique Chaudhry was a selfless worker of the party, be it courts or police stations, he stood with the party through thick and thin. Such workers are the asset of the party, it is because of them that we have reached these positions today.” Attaullah Tarar said that he had always raised his voice for the rights of party workers, and workers would never be exploited. The children of Attique Chaudhry will be supported fully and free education facilities will be provided to them, he added.
