Shahbaz Sharif caught lying and wasting tax payer money on false propaganda
ISLAMABAD: Transparency International Pakistan has taken exception to the Punjab government’s advertising campaign with taxpayers’ money misusing the watchdog’s name that it had cleared metro bus project while facts speaks otherwise.
Talking to The News, Advisor to the Transparency International Pakistan Syed Adil Gilani said the Punjab government was using public money to publicize that the TI-Pakistan had cleared its three projects including the Metro Bus Service, while the fact was that the TI-Pakistan had objected to two contracts of Metro Bus Service worth over Rs2 billion.
Gilani said both things were wrong: neither the Punjab government can use public money in publicizing itself on the verge of its end nor has the TI-P cleared the Metro Bus Service.
“We do not issue any certificate to any government or institution; however, we do monitor the procurement process and issue our report as we have done in Nadra’s UK project,” Adil Gilani said.
ہم کسی کوسرٹیفیکٹ نہیں جاری کرتے نہ ہی ہم نے پنجاب حکومت کو میٹرو بس پر سرٹیفیکٹ دیا - عادل گیلانی
نہ پنجاب حکومت الیکشن کے قریب عوام کے ٹیکس کا پیسہ اپنی تشہیر پر استعمال کر سکتی ہے اور نہ ہی ٹرانسپرنسی انٹرنیشنل نے میٹرو بس ، لیپ ٹاپ اور اجالا پروگرام کو کوئی کلیر ہونے کا سرٹیفیکٹ دیا - عادل گیلانی ٹرانسپرنسی انٹرنیشنل
Lanat on Punjab gov't for using Tax Payers money for propaganda and false advertisement.
Shahbaz Sharif had the audacity to publish a fake certificate.
Thats a big LOL.
Honeymoon period wasnt over before these rude transparency people busted the party.
Shame on Noon league. Seriously shame.

Intention, capacity and delivery. He wanted to give 300,000 really deserving, low-income passengers a more respectable, a more efficient and a cheaper way to commute between Gajju Matta and Shahdara. He gave them the Lahore Metro Bus; 27 kilometres in one hour, 29 bus stations, an Intelligent Transportation System and e-ticketing. Yes, the Khadim-e-Ala should have been able to utilise the $1 billion soft loan from the ADB and built something more elaborate, more efficient and completely underground. He did not – and that is a capacity issue. His intention was to serve the needy. He delivered.
Intention, capacity and delivery. His intention was to encourage Pakistani talent; the Khadim-e-Ala’s Rs4 billion free laptops scheme distributing 110,000 laptops to the brightest of the bright at Quaid-e-Azam Medical College, Bahawalpur, DG Khan Medical College, 106 position holders of the Bahawalpur Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education plus a hundred thousand other Pakistanis. Yes, at the current rate of progress, it will take the government of Punjab another 28 years to provide all children with their constitutional right to education (that means by the year 2041). Yes, the government of Punjab will miserably fail to meet the MDGs. Yes, there could have been a hundred more useful uses of Rs4 billion – and that is a capacity issue. The fact remains that Rs4 billion was spent in Pakistan on Pakistanis. His intention was to encourage Pakistani talent. He delivered.
Intention, capacity and delivery. His intention was to empower the poorest of the poor; the Khadim-e-Ala’s Rs5 billion Daanish Schools. Here are the four districts of Punjab with the highest incidence of poverty: Rajanpur, Muzaffargarh, DG Khan and Bahawalpur. There’s a school up and running in Hasilpur (District Bahawalpur), Chistian (District Bahawalpur) and Rahim Yar Khan. There shall soon be schools up and running in Harnoli, Jand, DG Khan and Fazilpur (District Rajanpur). It is true that 21,045 of our public schools have no building or one in a dangerous condition. Yes, he could have spent Rs5 billion in giving schools with no building a building. It is true that 61 percent of our schools have no electricity, 38 percent have no drinking water and 35 percent have no toilet facility.
Yes, there could have been more efficient uses of the Rs5 billion spent on Daanish Schools – and that indeed is a capacity issue. The fact remains that Rs5 billion was not wired off to some offshore bank. It was spent in Pakistan on Pakistanis. His intention was to empower the poorest of the poor through education. He intended well and delivered.
Intention, capacity and delivery. The Khadim-e-Ala wanted to enhance tenure security and improve service delivery – the Punjab government’s $51 million Land Records Management and Information System (IDA commitment $45 million, Punjab $6 million). Imagine; 205,345 square kilometres online and an electronic Register Haqdaran-e-Zameen and Fard-e-Malkiat. The ground reality here is that the Khadim-e-Ala underestimated the power of the patwari – the patwari is not going to let the system run (remember, even Osama had to pay up). There indeed is a capacity issue but the Khadim-e-Ala’s intention is beyond doubt.
Intention essentially is “an aim that guides action”. Capacity is both organisational and individual. The bottom line is that the Khadim-e-Ala has given, not taken. Delivery surely is something new on the ground; working and benefiting communities, for all of us to see and experience.
lolz... SS aur noon league, dramay-baaz & dhokay baaz!!
but still some people will not use their brains and vote for noon and defend it on Pkpolitics!
@ Pakistani Expat
Good intention is no good if efficiency of planning, program execution and management is so poor.
Are our criteria for good governance so LOW that if someone just spends some money on ill-executed, ill-timed and improperly planned projects, we give him a thumbs up??
If there are 10 hungry kids and you have money to buy 10 rotis or one cake piece. Would you give a cake piece to 1 kid and keep other 9 hungry? Or would you rather distribute 10 rotis among the kids?
Spending Rs. 5 billion on Danish schools is like keeping 9 kids hungry and giving a cake piece to one!
SS kay "jhoot" ka difa karnay utray nahi nooners maidaan mein abhi tak?? or they have humbly accepted that their ex-khadam-e-ala is a liar??
@ Pakitani Expat
Paistani awaam aaisi "intention" ka achaar dalay jis mein "performance aur efficiency" na ho??
An apt comment for thinking like yours is (quoted from dawn.com):
"What saddens me and disgusts me at the same time is that people in Pakistan are so used to mediocrity that they compare performance of 1 province and 1 CM which has been extremely horrific in 5 years with other 3 provinces that are even worse. Where was this CM for last 4 years?. Why all these least priority, unnecessary, and expensive projects done near elections?. The intentions were not sincere and for getting back to power and dirty politics. People that argue “well at least He did something” disgust me even more. So our standard and expectations are so low that we give preference/thumbs-up to someone who does something useless compared to who doesn’t do anything at all. Punjab’s performance according to Stats has been the worse and lowest in 5 years. Look at the facts people, think people please think!! don’t let the same old story/politics continue any further."
Seriously though, why Punjab goverment need seal of authenticity from transparency international? Is this a requirement from donors or another brain fart for publicity?
PTI members do not waste any moment to leg-pull PML(N).
If you watch the whole programme, you will find out reality...Transparency international gives out report, which is an authentication from their behalf that the project is transparent.
Another pathetic attempt by PTI...afsos!
what whole program?
can you please provide the link?
SS claims: "certificate aa gia"
TI person categorically denies that any certificate was given
In any case, SS started mega projects in election year and used his public office to improve image of his party.
Why all this "rapid firing" by rapid sharif around election time?
Where was he in last 4 years?
Simple si baat hai... nooners ko samj nahi aati
It is Wrong to use public office for political point scoring.
This is a link tot he whole programme:
Project jab complete hoga tab hi to transparency internation ko submit hoga...and it was completed in the last few months of his fourth year
