LAHORE: Pakistan People's Party Central Punjab Secretary Information Mustafa Nawaz Khokhar has said the historic public meeting of PPP on its 50th foundation day will prove to be a cornerstone in its success in the upcoming general elections.
Talking to The News, Mustafa Nawaz, also the PPP ticket holder from one of two NA constituencies of the Federal Capital, said that the big gathering witnessed at Parade Ground, Islamabad, showed the street power of PPP. He said only Pakistan People's Party could protect Pakistan from the extremist and anti-state forces which had already caused a huge loss to the federation.
Mustafa Nawaz stated the Parade Ground event was the reflection of Pakistan People's Party roots in the parts of federation as people from every nook and corner of the country turned up to attend it.
Khokher said that the next public meeting in Multan would also be a historic event. The party would prove its ballot power in the next general elections, he added. Report on closed factories sought: Punjab Minister for Industry and Trade Sheikh Alla-u-Din has said the Punjab government will strengthen industry through self-financing.
In a meeting with a delegation of Sargodha Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SCCI) headed by SCCI President Sheikh Naveed, the minister directed the representatives of Punjab Small Industries Corporation to visit Sargodha and make a complete list of closed factories and submit a report on Saturday for canceling their plot’s registration.
Earlier, the delegation discussed the issues faced by the Sargodha industry. The delegation briefed the minister about their problems such as temporarily closure of salt industry. They said there was a time when 250 containers were exported per month and now due to the closure of many factories, the business ended completely.
“A gypsum factory due to unavailability of gas was sold to India at low prices. Facilitation centre, Sargodha, had been closed since 2013 but

payment of salaries to the staff continues,” they said and informed the minister about the problems related to wooden handcraft and industry and demanded him solve their problems on priority.
