LAHORE:Provincial Minister Bait ul Mal and Social Welfare Syed Yawar Abbas Bukhari called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office, here Friday.
Matters of mutual interest and the initiatives taken for the welfare of less privileged segments of the society were discussed during the meeting. Abbas also apprised the chief minister about the performance of his department.
Buzdar said that welfare of destitute and disenfranchised strata is the responsibility of the government and effective measures have been taken for bringing the less privileged segment of the society in the mainstream. Scope of the shelter home and almonries are being further expanded.
Destitute and indigents were intentionally kept away from the benefits of development and progress during the previous regimes. He said that no former government had paid attention on the welfare of the less privileged segment of the society and their demand and requirements were badly ignored.
The incumbent government under the leadership of PM Imran Khan has supported the weak segment of the society. Time has come to award equal right to the deprived segment of the society besides fulfilling their genuine demands. He said that free medical treatment is being provided to the acid victims by the government first time in the history of the country.
“Interest-free loans have been arranged for their self-employment and skill development. The present government came into power for serving the people. New projects of public welfare will be launched.” He said that we are public servant instead of rulers. Syed Yawar Abbas Bukhari briefed the CM about the ongoing public welfare projects. He said that all out measures have been taken for the rehabilitation of the common man.
