If the government provides funds, the Punjab Water Supply Authority is ready to fix the sewerage system in the province.

He was addressing inauguration ceremony of clean drinking water projects for more than 16 rural areas including Blikasar and Thohabahadur in Chakwal on Saturday and was talking to the media.

Chaudhry Sarwar said that due to red tapism of bureaucracy, it took us more than a year to form Punjab Aab Pak authority, adding that today Prime Minister Imran Khan, Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Bazdar, bureaucracy and all the stake holders are on the same page and work on 1500 projects of Punjab Water Supply Authority is expeditiously underway across Punjab and all these projects will be completed by December 2021.

Governor Punjab said that full transparency is being ensured in the Punjab Water Supply Authority, and by the end of this year, we will provide clean drinking water to 8 million more people of Punjab in collaboration with NGOs.
