Lauds Ulema role for creating harmony in society during meeting with Tahir Ashrafi
Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Friday visited different areas of the provincial metropolis to check cleanliness arrangements under the ‘Khidmat Aap Ki Dehleez Par’ program. He drove his vehicle without personal staff.
The CM expressed strong indignation over poor cleanliness arrangements in some parts of the city. On his direction, LWMC CEO Imran Ali Sultan has been removed from his post and directed to report to the S&GAD.
The chief minister warned that those falling short to resolve public problems have no right to stay on their posts, saying that negligent officers should better leave Punjab.
Mere paperwork will not be tolerated, nor would any compromise be made on cleanliness, he insisted and added that he was saddened by the LWMC’s performance after observing the poor cleanliness situation.
Usman Buzdar said that after a host of complaints about poor cleanliness situation in different area of the provincial metropolis, he inspected the ground situation and directed LWMC to improve the cleanliness arrangements in the City.
Meanwhile, independent candidate from PP-84 Khushab Malik Amjad Raza called Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and announced joining the PTI, reposing confidence in the leadership of Usman Buzdar. He said that the PTI has taken effective steps for the resolution of public problems.
The CM welcomed him into the party’s folds, saying that PTI is the most popular political party which has improved the sagging economy. He regretted that the opposition has not accepted the economic development of the country as it does not want the common man to prosper.
Opposition’s politicisation over the national economy is deplorable as it does not know, even, the ABC of the economy, he said.
Those showing concern over worsened economic conditions are raising hue and cry over the economic stability, added Usman Buzdar. This is sheer duality, he said.
Chief Whip Syed Abbas Ali Shah MPA was also present.
Meanwhile, Prime Minister’s Special Representative on Religious Harmony Maulana Tahir Mahmood Ashrafi called on Chief Minister Usman Buzdar on Friday and discussed matters of mutual interest.
The CM said the promotion of the societal norms of tolerance, harmony and brotherhood is the need of the hour and the provincial government recognises the religious scholars’ role in this regard.
The Ulema has promoted harmony in society and their role in dealing with fanaticism on the intellectual front is praiseworthy.
We should follow the golden principles of tolerance, peace and harmony to make this world a worth living place, he continued.
Tahir Ashrafi appreciated the steps taken by the Punjab government to overcome the corona adding that religious scholars will continue their active role in this regard.
The whole world has also acknowledged the steps taken by the Pakistan government and the Ulema and Mashaikh will extend full support to the government for the promotion of unity, peace and brotherhood, he added.
