Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar on Monday said that Punjab will be made an exemplary province and every genuine issue of the elected representatives will be resolved on a priority basis.
“Negative politics aimed at destabilizing the country has died down and the journey towards development will be accelerated under the leadership of PM Imran Khan.”

Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar was talking to former provincial ministers – Malik Asad Khokhar and Samiullah Chaudhry who called on him on Monday. They expressed their confidence in the leadership the chief minister. On the occasion, Usman Buzdar assured them of resolution to problems being faced by people in their constituencies, saying that solution to such difficulties is his responsibility since assembly members are his companions. The chief minister said that the hollow politics of resignations and long march has died as the opposition is not brave enough for that.

Usman Buzdar said these corrupt elements have no political future and disappointment reflects on the faces of Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) leaders. These politicians want to fulfill the enemy’s agenda by creating unrest in the country, the CM added. Meanwhile, known industrialist and president of DG Khan Chamber of Commerce and Industry Kh Jalaluddin Rumi called on Chief Minister Usman Buzdar and apprised him of the establishment of almonries in DG Khan Division. It was also decided to establish this facility in other areas after Fazala Kach, Vohwa and Dabar Sakhi Sarwar. The CM appreciated the efforts of the traders’ community for setting up almonries in the area of Koh-e-Suleman.

Both also discussed the project of solar-based water filtration plants in different areas of south Punjab. Jalaluddin Rumi thanked the CM for the allotment of land on payment for CCI building in DG Khan. Talking on this occasion, the CM appreciated the cooperation extended by philanthropists and observed that serving the hoi polloi and providing food to the destitute strata is a worth-following blessed way of life of Holy Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). The government is establishing almonries, along with shelter homes, and a system was being devised so that no one may sleep hungry, he said.

Meanwhile, different parliamentarians called on CM Usman Buzdar and discussed matters of mutual interest including the pace of development schemes and solution of problems of their constituencies. Talking on the occasion, the CM maintained the so-called politics of holding long marches and resignations has ended in a fiasco. I have already pointed out that these elements have no courage to resign or to hold a long march as those involved in the quagmire of corruption could raise only hollow slogans, he maintained.

Those who called on the CM included MNA Muhammad Afzal Khan Dhandhla; MPAs – Makhdom Syed Iftikhar Hussain Gillani; Muhammad Amir Nawaz Khan, Muhammad Ejaz Hussain Bandesha, Rai Zahoor Ahmad, Muhammad Waris Aziz, Ghazanfar Abbas Cheena, Taimoor Ali Lali and Nawabzada Mansoor Ahmad Khan.
