LAHORE – Former State Bank of Pakistan governor Dr Isharat Husain on Saturday lauded the governance style of Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif, saying Punjab has become a role model for other provinces.
“[The] CM Punjab’s achievements in different areas especially in the energy sector deserve huge applause, as he has practically ensured transparency, merit, and competency among various projects and government institutions as well,” the ex-SBP governor said at the launching ceremony of his book ‘Governing the Ungovernable’ in Lahore.
Husain further stated that the PML-N leader’s performance in his previous tenure (2008-2013) was also superb, about which he has categorically stated in Chapter 2, page 56 of this book, as to how it contributed to the N-League’s victory in the General Elections of 2013.
“After all, it was the impressive track record of the Punjab government under the leadership of Chief Minister Shehbaz Sharif during the 2008-13 period, which won votes for the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).”
Dr Husain specifically mentioned that if Pakistan wants to move economically ahead, the approach and working style of CM Shehbaz is best in this regard.
