International Dengue Conference in Lahore (November 10 to November 11, 2012)
Shahbaz Sharif’s Address to Seminar
“I couldn’t sleep whole night when dengue experts expressed the fear that dengue may cause thousands of casualties this year…
Dengue had taken 250 precious lives last year but…This Year, thanks to Allah Almighty…owing to the tireless, coordinated effort of the experts & various Punjab Government’s departments, we were able to control dengue without even a single casualty!!!
If the same working model of unity and hard work is adopted at the nation-wide level, I don’t see the day much far…when instead of taking dictation from the foreign powers, we may become masters of our own destiny…thus, transforming our country into Quaid’s and Iqbal’s Pakistan!!!”
