Nation proud of Rangers: CM Says district development package to eliminate sense of deprivation


Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Monday paid glowing tributes to Rangers’ role in defending national boundaries and maintenance of peace, saying that services of Punjab Rangers for the motherland are invaluable and praiseworthy.

“The nation is proud of the strong role played by Punjab Rangers in defending the motherland.”

Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar was talking with newly-posted DG Punjab Rangers Maj-Gen Syed Asif Hussain who called on the CM at his office on Monday.

The CM felicitated him on the new assignment and expressed good wishes for him. Principal Secretary to CM was also present.

Talking on the occasion, CM Usman Buzdar said that the officers and jawans of Punjab Rangers are playing a valuable role in protecting the country’s boundaries, adding that Rangers’ officials are the pride of the nation.

Meanwhile, different MNAs including Nawab Sher Waseer, Karamat Ali Khokhar, Sardar Talib Nakai and Rahat Amanullah called on Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and discussed their constituency related problems.

While issuing directions for the solution of problems, the CM appreciated the district development package designed in consultation with the parliamentarians, adding that it would help to remove the deprivations of the far-flung areas.

The doors of the CM Office are open to the parliamentarians while MNAs are my companions as like provincial assembly members, he repeated. The district development packages would ensure balanced development in the province, he stated.

The government was returning the right of development to the most backward areas as they have a foremost right over the resources; the CM maintained and added that the government has no regard for the opponents as the past of the critics is blemished.

While criticising the PDM that it neither wants development nor did public welfare, the CM asserted that the unnatural alliance would not be allowed to hinder the development process.

The opposition has spared no effort to put the national interest at stake for safeguarding its personal interests and attempted to use national issues for promoting political agenda; he regretted and repeated that opposition has always played a negative role while no one could point a finger at the transparency of the PTI-led government.

On the other hand, the chief minister said that he settle the issues faced by parliamentarians while treating them as his own, saying he is always available for serving the masses because this government does not raise hollow slogans like past rulers as it believes in performance.

Chief Minister Usman Buzdar stated this while talking to MNAs including Mian Muhammad Shafiq, Amir Sultan Cheema, Ghulam Muhammad Lali, Sardar Muhammad Khan Leghari and Ghulam Bibi Bharwana.

The CM said the development work in the areas of parliamentarians would be done on a priority basis and no one would be allowed to create hurdles in the resolution of genuine issues.

Meanwhile, the Punjab government Monday approved to provide additional funds worth Rs3.5 billion to Lahore for additional 70 projects.

According to the chief minister, the approved funds would be included in the budget for the current financial year for Lahore. As per the official documents, the new projects for Lahore included the after-noon school program, a new bridge on River Ravi and the Sagian Road Scheme.

While most of the schemes worth Rs139 million will be completed in the minority community constituencies. A budget of Rs400 million has also been approved for construction works in Gulberg.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar felicitated the national cricket team over the clean sweep and victory in the 3rd T-20 match against Bangladesh.

In a statement issued here on Monday, the CM said the players have proved their mettle by defeating the BD team in the T-20 series.

I am convinced that teamwork results in success and the credit goes to the best performance of the Pakistani players as Muhammad Rizwan and Haider Ali played an important role in the victory of the national cricket team, he concluded.
