“More than seven million people will be benefitted from the completion of these potable water projects on a daily basis.”

Punjab Governor Ch Sarwar was addressing the groundbreaking ceremony of Punjab Aab-e-pak Authority projects at Governor Annexi on Tuesday.

Chairman Aab-e-Pak Authority (PAPA) Dr Shakeel Ahmed and members of National and Provincial Assemblies were also present on the occasion.

Chaudhry Sarwar laid the foundation stone of 116 projects of Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority for Rawalpindi Division which will cost more than Rs270 million.

He made it clear that no one will be allowed to take or give commission of even a single penny in Aab-e-pak Authority projects.

He said that besides completion of 1500 projects of Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority to provide clean drinking water to more than seven million people, similar number of people would be provided clean drinking water with contribution by NGOs.

The Punjab governor said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has also appreciated the projects of Punjab Aab-e-Pak Authority and he would suggest the government to hand over sewerage system to Aab-e-Pak Authority as well along with the task of providing clean drinking water as it would also fix it.

He said that filtration plants will be installed in the constituencies without any political discrimination.
