Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar chaired a meeting at his office to review the launch of the environment-friendly electric tramway project. The elevated expressway project from Gulberg to Motorway M-2 was also deliberated upon by the participants.

The CM directed to start it on a priority basis as it would help travellers’ access to motorway while decreasing traffic burden at Canal Road and Multan Road.

The elevated expressway would pass through Canal Bank Road, Jail Road, Ferozepur Road, Multan Road, Bund Road to Babu Sabu. Interchanges would be constructed at Canal Bank Road, Jail Road, Ferozepur Road, Multan Road and Bund Road, he added. DG LDA briefed about the project.

Advisor Dr Salman Shah, ACS, chairman P&D, secretaries of transport and housing departments, DG PMA and others attended the meeting.

Meanwhile, Provincial Minister Syed Sumsam Ali Bukhari, Rai Muhammad Murtaza Iqbal MNA and PTI leader Rai Hassan Nawaz called on Chief Minister Punjab Sardar Usman Buzdar at his office and discussed matters of mutual interest. Principal Secretary to CM was also present.

Talking on the occasion, CM Usman Buzdar pointed out that every district has been given a development package to ensure composite development. The PTI government has set a new example of public service during the last three years; he said and emphasised that the opponents could not compare their 30-year long black era with PTI’s 3-year bright era. Not a single scandal of this government has come to light; whereas stories of corruption came to light every day in the past, he maintained. The former rulers abused resources relentlessly for personal projection; he further said and regretted that the politics of propaganda is the usual modus operandi of the opposition. He repeated that the vision of equitable development was being ensured in the new Pakistan. The resources have not been limited to some specific cities as the development journey has been expanded to remote and backward areas concluded the CM.
