imageISLAMABAD: Governor Punjab Muhammad Rafiq Rajwana Wednesday said the government of Pakistan Muslim League-N will complete its constitutional tenure and win the next elections on the basis of its performance.

He expressed these views while talking to journalists of Sindhi media based in Islamabad at Punjab House here.

He said Altaf Hussain committed treason and such a person should not be issued Pakistani passport again.

"The government has sent a reference carrying proofs against Altaf Hussain, to Britain."

Altaf Hussain who was spewing poison against Pakistan in the past, again made an offensive speech, he said adding this time he would not escape from punishment.

He said the government was determined to take the case of Altaf to conclusion.

He said no Karachi like operation is needed in Punjab as conditions were better there.

To a question, he said it was responsibility of the provincial government to improve law and order situation.

The provincial government made a request to the federal government when the law and order situation went out of its hand, he mentioned.

The governor said the federal government started the Rangers operation which restored peace in Karachi.

The operation against target killers, extortionists and kidnappers would be taken to logical conclusion, he resolved.

He said the role of Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) led by Farooq Sattar is still to be judged and if it again related itself to Altaf Hussain then people of Pakistan will not accept such a political party.

The federal government is cooperating with the provincial governments in different matters, he said adding strong provinces strengthen federation and denied the impression that Punjab was getting more attention.

He recalled that during his meeting with Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif stated that he was their chief minister and would get complete cooperation of the federal government.

Governor Punjab pointed that the provincial government started mega projects in the backward areas of South Punjab and initiated projects like metro bus, universities and judicial complex in Multan.

He said all provinces were of equal importance for the Prime Minister and there was no discrimination in terms of development projects.

Recently government signed an agreement with Asian Development Bank and all projects in it were of construction of roads and infrastructure in Sindh,

To a question about Panama papers, he said when Pakistan Tehreek i Insaf (PTI) had knocked the door of Supreme Court then why it was coming on roads.

He said some people think that China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) was all about roads although it was a comprehensive programme of development and prosperity which would benefit the four provinces.

He said development projects were being completed briskly in Sindh and Balochistan, adding opponents of Pakistan were not happy with the projects meant for bringing prosperity into lives of people, adding certain elements wanted to spread chaos in the country.

To a question, he said conditions were better in Punjab as compared to other provinces and it has a hard working Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif.
