No negligence would be tolerated in solving public problems: CM

LAHORE: Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar has asserted that no negligence will be tolerated in the solution of public problems as those failing to deliver have no right to stay on their posts.

He stated that best performers will be encouraged while strict action will be taken against showing negligence in the solution of public problems. The officers will have to go out in the field to improve service delivery as one is unable to garner facts or understand the public problems while sitting in the office, the CM continued. I have resumed surprise visits to different areas to resolve public problems at the spot, he added.

I have inspected various government departments during a surprise visit to Sambrial and Sialkot yesterday, he stated. During this inspection, I heard public complaints and 15 officers were removed from their posts upon showing negligence. Action will be initiated if any laxity is observed and only those officers will stay in Punjab who will serve the masses, concluded the CM.
