Usman Buzdar said that remote and backward areas were intentionally neglected during the previous regime as development and progress is the right of every city and town.

He said that former rulers deliberately plundered the funds of backward areas and this unjustified distribution of resources in the past substantially increase the deprivations of backward areas.

The incumbent government believes in composite development and taking the backward areas along in its journey of development and progress.

Anti-development elements cannot befool the people any more through their false propaganda.

Pakistan is moving ahead on the road to progress under the leadership of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He asserted that the government will continue its mission of public service without caring about the criticism.

The honour and the respect of public representatives will be ensured. Genuine and legitimate work of elected representatives will not be stopped, he added.
