Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said the country is going through a sensitive phase of its history as the enemies are trying to destabilize it.

“Every patriotic Pakistani should prefer national interest over everything else as personal interest is valueless before it.

The opposition is non-serious, even in the prevailing circumstances, and its leaders should give preference to the national interest,” he added.

Usman Buzdar said that the country demands unity and cohesion because Pakistan is the only identity of all of us.

Regrettably, the opposition parties are colluding to divide the nation but the people have fully recognized their dual faces, he added.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar said that every promise has been fulfilled by the incumbent government.

After Multan, the foundation stone of South Punjab Secretariat building will also be laid in Bahawalpur soon, he added.

CM Usman Buzdar was talking to various lawmakers who called on him including MNAs – Rana Qasim Noon, Mian Shafique Arain, Tahir Iqbal, Farooq-e-Azam, Abdul Ghafoor Watto and MPA Samiullah Chaudhry.

The CM discussed matters of mutual interests and developmental projects with the lawmakers.

Talking on the occasion, the CM said that a development package has been devised for Bahawalpur and he will visit the district soon.

He regretted the past rulers befooled the people of south Punjab with hollow slogans.

The resources meant for the development of south Punjab were spent on other districts, he regretted and vowed that no one will be able to make a dacoity on the resources of south Punjab in future.

The Chief Minister maintained that the commitment and direction of government are right adding that governance modal has been transformed for better service delivery.

I do not believe in the dogma of one-man show, as the past government, and decisions are made with consultations while taking everybody along, he stressed.

Meanwhile, the defeated elements are engrossed in hatching conspiracies, from the day first, but their every design has been frustrated vis-a-vis the politics of public service, maintained Usman Buzdar.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Usman Buzdar went to the residence of senior PTI leader and former national assembly Speaker Hamid Nasir Chattha in Gulberg and condoled with him over the death of his wife.

The CM offered fateha and prayed to Almighty Allah to rest the departed soul in eternal peace and grant courage to the bereaved heirs to bear the loss with equanimity. MPA Samiullah Chaudhary was also present.

Meanwhile, CM Sardar Usman Buzdar went to the residence of the senior politician and columnist Akram Chaudhry and condoled with him over the death of his mother.

The CM offered fateha and prayed to Almighty Allah to rest the departed soul in eternal peace.

Meanwhile, in his message on World Thalassaemia Day, CM Usman Buzdar said that children suffering from thalassemia disease deserve special attention of society.

The CM said all the precautionary steps are needed to be applied regularly for remaining safe from this disease.

Meanwhile, the provision of quality healthcare facilities to thalassemia patients is a commitment of the Punjab government and different measures have been taken to provide the best treatment facilities to them, he added.

Along with it, it is also important to make concerted efforts to defeat this deadly disease.

The purpose of celebrating this day is to raise public awareness and to reiterate the commitment to promoting a healthy society in the country, concluded the CM.
