Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar Sunday directed the authorities concerned to complete all development projects within the stipulated time period and warned that no negligence in this regard would be tolerated.
He said that no compromise would be made on quality of development projects, adding that he would personally monitor progress on development projects and would not allow anyone to interfere in the progress of backward areas.
Progress and prosperity is an inherent right of people belonging to backward areas and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government was returning that right to people living in far-flung areas, concluded Usman Buzdar.
Moreover, Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has said that making effective laws to pre-empt violence against women was part of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government agenda.
In his message on the International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women, he said that violence against women was not only an inhuman act but also a legal offence.
Injustice being done to any women on the basis of gender bias tantamount to cruelty. By empowering women and granting them equal rights could help eradicate such a social vice, the CM added. Religion Islam has granted women all rights, he added.
The chief minister said that for providing prompt justice and redressing grievances of women, a state-of-the-art centre had been working in Multan and facilities of police access, prosecution, medical and forensic were available under one roof at the centre. The scope of such centres would be expanded across the province, he added.
Usman Buzdar said the International Day for Elimination of Violence against Women provides an opportunity for creating awareness among people about providing all opportunities to women to lead a respectable and violence-free life.
