LAHORE – Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar said that on July 25, 2018, the people of Pakistan gave a mandate to the PTI for change and laid the foundation of the New Pakistan by voting power.
The idols of corruption were destroyed and the mafia was defeated on July 25.
Two years ago, new hopes, new hopes, new approaches, and new ideologies won.
He said that the elements that lost the general election had hatched a conspiracy against Prime Minister Imran Khan from day one and by the grace of Allah, every conspiracy failed because of the politics of public service.
Pakistanis will always support PTI. He said that no matter how many defeated elements would hue and cry, the new Pakistan under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan would move forward.
Regardless of criticism, the journey of public service will continue.
The losing element must know that the government will complete its term of office.
He said that opposition parties had been destroyed and their credibility among the people had been tarnished and the era of looting had become a thing of the past. The captain’s determination and morale is high.
Prime Minister Imran Khan is committed to building and developing a new Pakistan.
Russia was expelled from the G8 for annexing the Crimean Peninsula and the basis for the decision is still valid, a German government spokesman said Wednesday, after US President Donald Trump said he wanted to invite several other countries, including Russia.
“It is up to the Russian leadership to end this situation,” government spokesman Steffen Seibert told a regular press conference in Berlin.
Russia was expelled from what later became the G-8 in 2014 after Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine. At that time, Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, was president.
Russia still holds the region, and various G-7 governments have rejected Trump’s previous calls to take Moscow back.
The head of the EU diplomat warned Tuesday that he did not have the power to change the format of the G-7 Summit.
Trump said on Saturday that he would postpone the summit scheduled this month and invite other countries, including Russia, to join the meeting.
However, the high representative of EU foreign affairs Josep Borrell said Russia had not changed direction since 2014 and therefore should not be accepted again.
“The prerogative of the G-7 chairman, in this case, the United States, is to issue guest invitations – guest invitations reflect the priorities of the host,” Borrell said.
“But changing membership, changing the format permanently, is not the prerogative of the G-7 chairman.”
Leaders from the G-7 – the US, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan – are scheduled to meet via video conference after the coronavirus cancels plans to meet directly at Camp David, the US presidential retreat outside Washington.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also rejected the idea of inviting Russian President Vladimir Putin, citing “continuing to disrespect and display international rules and norms.”

More than 80,000 people in Massachusetts have now been infected with a new corona virus, health officials said Wednesday, reporting 174 other deaths.
The total number of confirmed cases now reaches 80,497, after rising 1,165 on Wednesday, and the number of deaths is 5,315, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health.
It came a day after the department reported only 33 deaths from the corona virus in Massachusetts, the lowest number since the spike, although that was partly due to the late reporting on Monday which included some of the deaths that should have been reported on Tuesday. However, Monday and Tuesday together only an average of 81 deaths per day, about half of the number seen during the surge in mid-April.
However, health leaders and officials have encouraged the public not to draw long-term conclusions from data for one or two days, and the increase in deaths on Wednesday is returning to levels reported during the spike.
Officials have warned that recovery will take place long after the virus stops spreading very quickly. Among them was Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, who announced Wednesday that his city has reported no deaths from the new corona virus the day before.
“A day without death to report is certainly a good day but we still have work to do if we want to see it every day,” Walsh said.
Mayor Marty Walsh said that the city still has a lot of work to do before life returns to normal.
When the daily counts decline, indicating that the worst pandemic may be over for now, speculation has changed to when and how Massachusetts can be safely reopened. But Governor Charlie Baker remained silent Wednesday about what businesses will be able to return to work on May 18, when phase 1 the plan will begin.
Massachusetts for weeks became one of the COVID-19 epicenter in the U.S., with the fourth most cases – surpassed this week by Illinois, which now has a surge – and death among all countries.
Baker and other health officials said Massachusetts’ high count was likely due to state testing among the country’s most per capita population – more than 400,000 tests were conducted on Tuesday, according to the Department of Public Health.
Lahore – The Sarwar Foundation has provided rations for 20,000 poor and vulnerable families and has begun supplying rations to the poor in Azad Kashmir in addition to the distribution of sanitizers and masks among the masses.
This was stated by Deputy Chair of the Sarwar Foundation Begum Perveen Sarwar, when speaking to media people here on Sunday. Since the coronavirus pandemic entered Pakistan, he said, the Sarwar Foundation has been busy providing rations, sanitizers and masks for poor families and the general public to build protection against the terrible coronavirus.
Begum Perveen Sarwar said the foundation had provided rations to around 20,000 poor families in Lahore and other cities in the province and efforts to provide assistance to more families were ongoing.
Begum Sarwar said the foundation also sent rations to 3,000 poor families in Azad Kashmir, Kohala and Murree. He said the rations were distributed to the poor without political discrimination in addition to ensuring transparency and achievement.
Answering questions from media people, Begum Sarwar said even the US and other developed countries faced the worst crisis after the coronavirus pandemic and people suffered. He said Pakistan was the only country in the world that had a large number of benefactors serving the masses during this crisis.
He said the Sarwar Foundation would not leave poor families alone and continue to help them in this testing period.
Massachusetts has 132 other people who died of the corona virus, public health officials said Thursday, while another 1,696 tested positive for COVID-19, a disease caused by the virus.
The Massachusetts Department of Public Health said the number of deaths reached 4,552, while a total of 73,721 were now tested positive for the virus.
Thursday’s report is closely watched after the previous day saw a surge of deaths – 208, much higher than reported in the previous days – and the number of tests that returned was positive.
“Yesterday’s figures are proof that although there are some signs of a positive trend, we still have a lot of work to do,” Governor Charlie Baker said at a press conference on Thursday, while urging people not to make broad generalizations from one day’s numbers.
Baker tracks key statistics as a measure of whether he can began reopening Massachusetts on May 18.
Massachusetts is one of the COVID-19 epicenter in the U.S., with the third and fourth most fatal case among all countries. Baker and other health officials said that it might be partly due to a strong commitment to testing – more than 339,000 tests were carried out on Wednesday, according to the Department of Health.
