Special Assistant to Chief Minister on Information Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan on Thursday said that work is underway on historic development project in the province.

The SACM took to Twitter and said the projects include two new canals, seven economic zones, twelve hospitals and as many universities, 1000-kilometer long farm-to-market roads, school libraries and science labs.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said all families will be provided health insurance worth over seven lac rupees. She termed the projects as unprecedented.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader further added that the former corrupt chief minister only focused on showoff and the projects which were started in the past were not to facilitate public and have become only a burden on the nation in the form of debts.

Meanwhile, SACM Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan said that the Punjab government is taking emergent steps to deal with the rising corona threat, adding that the government has inaugurated an ambulance facility to pick and drop the elderly citizens as well as the differently-abled persons.

Talking to the media, Dr Firdous said the ambulance service will bring senior citizens and special persons from home to the center for corona vaccination and then drop them off at home.

She said the government has decided to increase the number of vaccination centers to further facilitate the people.

The Special Assistant said that Prime Minister Imran Khan has turned down the Sindh government’s recommendation to impose a ‘complete lockdown’ as the measure will adversely impact daily wage earners as well as low-income families across the country.

The government wants to safeguard the economic interests of the poorest Pakistanis besides dealing with the corona challenge, she said.

Dr Firdous said the government is also continuing its reform agenda to bring a meaningful change in the lives of the common man and it is sanguine that initiatives like 2 new canals, 7 economic zones, 12 new hospitals and 12 new universities will benefit a wide cross-section of society.

She said the Buzdar government is working on 1,000km farm-to-market roads, 1,000 school libraries and last but not least 1000 science labs.

Commenting on Maryam’s possible travel abroad, Dr Firdous said the real intentions of the PML-N have been exposed.

Maryam has invited Dr Adnan who is a known crony of the Sharif family and has earlier befooled the nation about the health of Nawaz Sharif.

However, this time tricks of Dr Adnan will not help Maryam to escape the country and she will have to answer about the looted money.

An energetic political actress like Maryam Nawaz should better consult a psychiatrist rather than go abroad for a medical checkup, advised the SACM.
