CM fixes property transfer fee at one percent
Punjab assembly members Malik Muhammad Anwar and Malik Jamshed Altaf met with Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi at his office and discussed matters of mutual interest, political situation and development projects.
Speaking on this occasion, Chief Minister Parvez Elahi said that he believes in action, instead of hollow claims. People still remember welfare work done in my previous tenure as I laid new institutions, instead of personal projections, which are yielding results today. Whenever Allah Almighty gave us an opportunity, we served the people selflessly. While on the other hand, the opponents always indulged in hatching conspiracies, he lamented.
The 13-party PDM coalition has ruined the country in a few months as this cabal is not unable to manage affairs nor the economy is being managed by them. Imran Khan, alone, has reduced the paper lions of 13 parties to zero, he said. There is an ideal partnership with the PTI in Punjab. The work of the opposition is to do propaganda and they will keep doing it. We are doing welfare work with Imran Khan and will continue to do it, he concluded.
Meanwhile, Chief Minister Punjab Chaudhry Parvez Elahi has fixed property transfer at one percent across the province.
In a statement, he said that the revenue of the Punjab government will increase a lot adding that this decision has been taken in the best public interest. There will be an increase in registries across the province and our initiative aims to give relief to the people. This initiative will also promote the construction industry while creating immense employment opportunities, he stated.
The decision was taken in a meeting which was attended by SMBR Zahid Akhtar Zaman, Principal Secretary to CM Muhammad Khan Bhatti and Secretary Finance Iftikhar Amjad.
