Progressive Punjab

Has Punjab really set sail towards progress and development? Different people have different opinions. Some people are of the opinion that the PTI-led government has failed to provide any kind of relief to the masses whereas there are others who certainly believe that the government has taken many initiatives which are really meant for the welfare and wellbeing of the people of the province.
There is always an objective reality out there, but unfortunately we view it through the spectacles of our mis-beliefs, stigmatic attitudes and self-asserted values. If we take such spectacles in their true perspective, then we might be able to understand what the reality is!
Some recent developments in different sectors have shown that Punjab is certainly heading towards progress and development. By realising the need to adopt a few measures and introduce some special initiatives, the Government of Punjab has really shown a very serious attitude in ensuring the betterment of its people.
To provide lodging facility to the poor, needy and homeless citizens, the government has established “Shelter Homes”. To facilitate the citizens and help protect police record and provide secure access to the Police Station Record Management System, the government has set up “Mobile Police Khidmat Marakaz”.
To provide affordable housing facility to the low-income segments of the country, the government has started Naya Pakistan Housing Program”. Likewise, Government has launched Punjab Ehsas Program, Sehat Insaf Cards, Smart Card for Registration of Vehicles and many initiatives to empower women and eliminate different forms of discrimination and violence against them in all its manifestations.
The credit for all this certainly goes to Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar who is firm, resolute and relentless in his efforts to uplift the lives of people of the province. All this sheds light on the fact that Punjab is on the way to progress and development.
