Under the “Ab Gaon Chamkein” Gay’ program, cleaning of the drain systems of the 8 urban and 83 rural union councils is progressing well. Secretary Union Council is monitoring this campaign’s success. One loader rickshaw and three sanitary employees are allotted by each union council for cleaning. The cleaning efforts are being observed by assistant commissioners and assistant directors of local government. The commissioners predicted that the Bahawalpur district’s villages would start to look tidy and clean like urban areas fairly soon.
The Punjab government has taken a significant decision to launch the “Ab Gaon Chamkein Gay” program, aimed at bringing urban-style facilities to rural areas. This initiative seeks to improve the lives of rural residents by establishing a well-organized system for the supply of clean drinking water and providing essential amenities at their doorstep.
Under this program, the hassle of travelling long distances to obtain birth, death, marriage, and divorce registration certificates will be eliminated for villagers. Each village will have an efficient chowkidari system in place, and a committee comprising residents will be formed to enhance the overall condition of their communities. The responsibility of forming these committees will lie with the respective assistant commissioner, and the revenue generated from villages will be invested in their specific development projects.
Earlier caretaker Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi has entrusted the administration with the task of ensuring the successful implementation of the “Ab Gaon Chamkein Gay” program. Caretaker Provincial Minister for Excise and Communications Bilal Afzal has said that the Punjab government was taking all possible steps for the public welfare. Talking to the media after visiting Dr Faisal Masood Teaching Hospital Sargodha on Wednesday, the minister said that the government machinery was being mobilized to improve health, education.
