While talking to the media men at the Deputy Commissioner Officer here, Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan further said that the past rulers of the Punjab had left the province under debt worth Rs 1200 but the Chief Minister (CM) Usman Buzdar, according to the vision of the Prime Minister Imran Khan, had worked hard and his sincere efforts had again strengthened the provincial economy and put the province in the path to progress and prosperity.

She termed the Punjab government’s budget 2021-22 as exemplary and and public friendly and further added that the opposition was unable to find any flaws in it.

She said that the opposition had an old tradition of making useless noise in the assembly sessions in order to disrupt the activity.

She said that she was sure that the opposition was making noise against the budget even without reading or studying it.

She said that the provincial government was soon going to fulfill the Pakistan Tehrik e Insaf (PTI)’s promise of better health facilities for all.

She told that one trillion rupees would be spent in order to provide free health insurance to the whole population of the province and another 29.2 million people would be added into that health care project.

Dr Firdous Ashioq Awan said that selfless less efforts by the Prime Minister Imran Khan had resultd in the gradual improvement of the economy and by that he (the Prime Minister) had laid the foundation of ‘Riasat e Madina’.

She said that the opposition had become further desperate at the presentation of such a ‘fine and friendly budget’ and the recent session of the national assembly has exposed it.

She hoped that the budget 2021-22 would certainly be approved by the parliament as it was not the budget of only the PTI but it represented the entire nation.

Dr Firdous opposition wanted to get power at any cost in order to continue their looting spree.

She opined that there was no comparison of Usman Buzdar and Shehbaz Sharif as Buzdar had reduced the expenditure of the CM Office by 40% while his predecessor had looted the provincial resources as it were his personal property.

She said that the people were very well aware of the real face of the past rulers. She praised Sialkot city as it had been earning valuable foreign exchange for the national exchequer and anually paying more than Rs 45 billion as tax.

She said that a new industrial zone and housing colony for the laborers would soon be constructed along the Sialkot-Lahore Motorway in order to boost industrial sector in Sialkot.
