LAHORE:Provincial Minister for Human Rights and Minorities Affairs Ijaz Alam, Emergy Minister Muhammad Akhtar Malik, Sardar Muhammad Khan Leghari MNA and MPAs namely Mahindar Pall Singh, Saleem Akhtar and Ghulam Ali Asghar called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office and discussed matters of mutual interest.
The CM repeated his resolve to continue consultations with the parliamentarians for the timely solution of people-related problems and assured to give importance to their proposals adding that feasible suggestions will be implemented. A mechanism has been devised to monitor development projects at every level to yield positive results, he added. The CM said the timely completion of development schemes is important to facilitate the citizens and the sustained monitoring will ensure efficiency and transparency.
The menace of corruption, in development projects, is a thing of the past and no one will be allowed any wrongdoing now because development schemes are executed through hard-earned money of the people, he continued. I am personally monitoring different development projects by conducting regular field visits and a vigilant eye is kept on every development scheme, Usman Buzdar said while asserting that no one will be allowed to misappropriate funds.
The chief minister announced to provide facilities to the people at their doorsteps by upgrading healthcare and educational facilities. Regrettably, money was wasted on exhibitory projects in the past while neglecting the actual demands and priorities of the people, he said. The incumbent government has eliminated this wrong tradition and the negative tactics of influencing people through political jugglery are also done away with. Similarly, the era of the lip-service is over and the government practically performs. Those who keep pending official instructions have no right to stay on their posts. No vindictive action has been initiated against anyone in the province nor would be done in future, he added.
The CM maintained the minority empowerment package of Punjab is a worth-following example for other provinces adding that resources have been provided for the repair and maintenance of temples, churches and gurdwaras of the minority communities. Similarly, necessary facilities were being ensured at the religious places of minority communities in the province, he added. Along with it, the PTI government is reforming mistakes of the past as the country has deviated from its destination due to the wrong policies of the past rulers. There is no room for any wrongdoer in Punjab as a country lagged due to corruption, he added. The PTI government has raised a strong voice against corruption and a new example has been set by introducing meaningful reforms in a short period, concluded the CM.
