Punjab’s 100-day agenda

IN line with the vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan, Punjab government also unveiled its reforms and growth strategy for the first one hundred days. Presiding over the second cabinet meeting on Saturday, Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar said poverty alleviation, promotion of tourism industry, agriculture and livestock reforms, formulation of water policy, health and education reforms, women development, provision of clean drinking water, construction of five million houses, environment policy and tree plantation have been included in the agenda.
Indeed all these are important subjects and genuine improvement and reforms in these sectors will bring valuable and visible change in life of the people. To oversee the reforms, the provincial CM has also formed multiple committees. The Prime Minister has shown a lot of confidence and fully backed Mr Buzdar even after controversies that hit him soon after his assumption of office. The reforms agenda now put forward by him indeed shows that he is serious and has done the necessary homework to deliver on what is expected from him. Unlike the past, one expects him to treat all the regions of the province on equal basis while giving special importance to the areas that remained backward. His first and foremost priority should be bringing improvement in the social sectors especially health, education, water and sanitation as these are the areas which have always been neglected and need immediate improvement to take forward the country on path of sustainable progress and development. We also expect that the CM will personally monitor progress on the reforms agenda to ensure its implementation in letter and in spirit.
