CM directs timely completion of mega uplift schemes



Caretaker Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi has directed the concerned authorities to accelerate the speed adding that the projects should be completed as soon as possible for the convenience of the people. He expressed these views during his visits to inspect the developmental schemes. He inspected the CBD Boulevard Gulberg underpass, the Lahore Bridge extension and the Samanabad underpass projects on Friday.

He also inspected the alternate traffic arrangements at Gulberg, Ferozepur Road, Multan Road, Gulshan Ravi and Samanabad.   Early completion of the projects was necessary for the smooth flow of traffic, he added. During the construction period, the best management should be ensured to keep the traffic flowing and special arrangements be made for this purpose. The related issues should be resolved quickly to avoid any delay, he added.

The completion of the projects should be ensured within the given deadline as any delay in the projects of public importance cannot be tolerated under any circumstances, he stressed.  Provincial Information Minister Amir Mir, secretary housing, secretary information, commissioner, CTO & CCPO Lahore, DG PHA, MD WASA and others were also present. Meanwhile Caretaker Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi paid a surprise visit to Anjuman-e-Sulemania Model Children Home late at night.

He noted with regret that there was no soup in the toilet and the cleanliness conditions were also dilapidated while the water of the electric water cooler was discoloured with rust particles. The CM expressed his anger on seeing such a situation for the homeless children and ordered to change the filter of the electric water cooler immediately.  Mohsin Naqvi inspected the washrooms, dining hall, kitchen, and other rooms and instructed to improve the overall cleanliness arrangements.

He also checked the food items kept in the freezer. It is unacceptable to not provide support for children who have no one to turn to. There is an urgent need to improve the functioning of the institution, he added. Meanwhile Caretaker Chief Minister Punjab Mohsin Naqvi has expressed a deep sense of sorrow and grief over the loss of lives due to the falling of a trolley into the canal in DG Khan and sought a report from the commissioner.
