Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Sunday declared that the PTI government is pursuing a one point agenda of public service and all-out resources are being utilised for the welfare and prosperity of the common man.

“We will spare no effort to change the life of the common man for better in way to ensure transparency at all levels.”

The chief minister pointed out that gone are the days when ruler would plunder pubic exchequer in the name of projects, adding that the PTI has proved, in the past two and half years, that it deems the public money as a sacred trust, which will only be spent for public development.

The past rulers looted the public exchequer mercilessly and always made hollow claims regarding so-called development only to hoodwink the public, he said, adding that each and every penny of the public exchequer will be spent a transparent manner for public welfare only.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar took notice of the murder of a minor girl after rape in the precinct of police station Qila Kalarwala, Pasroor and sought a report from RPO Gujranwala.

The chief minister directed to apprehend the accused at the earliest and initiate legal action against them.

He also directed to ensure justice to the affected family. Usman Buzdar assured the affected family for speedy justice and extended heartfelt sympathies and condolence with them.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar said that in the present scenario Punjab strongly demands to appoint impartial observers on the barrages of both the provinces (Sindh and Punjab).

This will greatly help to get error-free data of water discharge as well as equitable distribution of water scarcity among the provinces.

The chief minister said that this initiative will also help to eradicate misunderstandings between both provinces on the water issue.

Usman Buzdar has also invited the parliamentarians from all over the country, especially from Sindh, to visit the barrages of Punjab to observe themselves the data reporting system of the scarcity of water, water distribution and discharge data.

Usman Buzdar said that he wants parliamentarians to personally observe the fact how the Punjab government is making the water discharge reporting system transparent.

He wished that the PPP government also invite the parliamentarians from Punjab to visit Sindh’s barrages so that they could also observe in detail the condition of their barrages, distribution of water and reporting system.

He further stated that we will have to come out of cocoons, getting above our political affiliations for resolving the issues.

Usman Buzdar also assured the farmers of Punjab for resolving their water problems adding that he will soon go to his farmer brothers.

Despite the severe water shortage in the province, I will make all efforts to redress the grievances of farmers on a priority basis, he added.

The incumbent government is taking such steps which ensure that farmers’ crops and their sowing may not be affected.
