Shahbaz says protests won’t stop the drones


If Pakistan stops accepting foreign aid, the US will stop its drone attacks in the country, said Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Wednesday adding that condemnations and protests are not enough to halt the strikes.

The chief minister was referring to the protest organised by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf against drone strikes earlier this week.

Speaking to farmers in Hasil Pur after inaugurating the wheat harvest season, the chief minister said he has reserved a five per cent quota for Cholistani children in the Punjab government’s scheme of Danish Public Schools.  The schools aim to give free boarding and lodging to students.

Earlier last month, the Danish Public School plan was criticised for spending Rs12 million on inauguration ceremonies for two schools.

The chief minister added that the Punjab Government plans to introduce friendly policies to facilitate the farmers. He further said that two live stock farms out of five are working, while the other three will start functioning after the current harvest.
